Ruger® Super Blackhawk® Revolver
It turns heads EVERY time I take it some where to shoot. It is beautiful. After 100 rounds I bought a hogue rubber grip (performs better for me, but I still prefer the wood look) because this gun does kick.... BUT IT IS A 44 mag! My friends laugh as I "pierce ears" of silhouettes at 20 yards. It was tough to get the hang of taking out the cylinder at first (for cleaning) but I have mastered it now. I had one problem: the screw that holds the front of the trigger guard to the frame came out! I called ruger, they sent one free of charge. I received it by mail in 3 days. I monitor the screw and it will come loose after about 50 rounds. I need to follow up on that.

has a little bite to it.
I bought this because I have a lever action 44 mag. I love single action guns and I figured I would get my 44 in Blackhawk instead of the Redhawk (double action). I ride horses to round up open range cows so its nice to only carry one caliber. This gun is heavy but I was expecting that with something that shoots this caliber. Very well built and fun to shoot. This is a .44 so it packs a punch and is pricy to shoot, but if you are aware of that in the beginning then you will be fine.

Ruger SuperBlackhawk - Super gun
The SuperBlackhawk is a fine, fine revolver - very strong and well made, well balanced. Accuracy in a handgun is a function of good trigger pull and good gun stability in the hand, and the SuperBH has both - it's big and heavy and does not wiggle around, and the "single action army" style design allows it to roll back in the hand,which really helps with the 44mag recoil. I saw another reviewer who put Hogue grips on his.. I don't recommend that, use stock or other smooth grips to allow the gun to function like it is supposed to do... to roll back in the shooting hand. This is a single action revolver... you're not concerned with a rapid second shot. Never had any problems with screws backing out, don't know what that is all about. Never hand any problems, period. 100% blued steel gun, no aluminum like the Single Six so it doesn't get shiny spots. This is an expensive gun to shoot, don't forget that.. but it is VERY satisfying on all fronts.
