Using 2 interchangeable cylinders, Ruger® Blackhawk® Convertible Single-Action Revolver allows shooters to use a wide variety of ammunition in one sidearm. In times of scarcity, the Blackhawk Convertible will function with 3 types of common handgun ammunition: 357 Magnum, 38 Special, and 9mm Luger. This is not only a great handgun for big game hunting, self-defense, and rugged outdoor adventures, but it also makes the perfect sidearm for anyone who takes being prepared for emergencies seriously. The 357/38 cylinder can be replaced by the 9mm cylinder by simply opening the loading gate, pushing on the base pin release button, and sliding the base pin forward. No tools are needed and there are no small parts to loose.
For the Blackhawk Single-Action Revolver, Ruger incorporated the classic lines and inherent strengths of the US military service revolver used in the late 1800s with modern steel and manufacturing techniques to make the safest and most rugged sidearms made. The Blackhawk is built on a robust, all-steel frame made to withstand modern magnum cartridges, and uses all coil springs in the mechanism that retain their power for ultra-durability (instead of leaf-springs). Ruger's transfer bar ignition system provides an unparalleled measure of security against accidental discharge, allowing the shooter to carry the revolver safely with all 6 chambers loaded. The Blackhawk's traditional western-style grip is renown for being one of the most natural pointing grips ever designed, enabling shooters to instinctively draw and shoot, as well as stand and take aim. The rear sight is protected by integral frame topstrap ribs, and is click adjustable for both windage and elevation, allowing user to make precision adjustments when changing types of ammunition. The front sight is an improved Partridge type that provides a good sight picture, and allows for snag-free withdrawal from holsters. The Ruger Blackhawk Single-Action Revolver Convertible is a well-designed, reliable firearm that utilizes the widest range of ammunition of any single handgun available. Made in USA.
