Recent Ruger Blackhawk Blue Finish?

Recommended Posts

I've owned a few Blackhawks in the past. The finish is good, but nothing fancy. Just a rather plain blue, but it does seem to hold up well. 

What exactly is your concern?

It looks blue that's plain. :taunt:

It’s fairly flat. Not much polish to it. I collect old Ruger single actions and love their finish. My last three Ruger single actions were full of tooling marks and sloppily fit. I’d inspect closely or try to buy in person.

let me get a couple of pictures up-both mine are about 2 years old-I like the bluing-it is actual bluing not the phosphate finish that all the others pass off as bluing.

That’s kinda what I wanted to see. While not a polished blue like Smith & Wesson, it appears to have a little shine. I think I’ll check out the gun show here tomorrow, and if don’t find anything (which is usually the case anymore); I’ll order new.

It ain’t a Colt if that’s what you’re after. You remind me of my father. Knows what he wants, but too tight to pay for it. Quit beating yourself up and go get a Colt.

I had colts. I had Pythons. But I sold them because they were junk. If I just wanted a fantastic blue finish I would buy S&W. Unfortunately, they don’t make old azz cowboy guns.

So, unless you are going to sell me one of your Colts for $500, go get one of your Blackhawks out and take pictures of it, and properly answer the question. I’ll hurry up and wait right here.

Dang kids. :drama:

LOL! Colt has been making "old azz cowboy guns" since the mid 1800's. They are many things, but junk is not one of them.

      Just had a customer tell me about this. Interesting.

      I’ve never been a trigger snob and until getting an M&P Performance Center with an absolutely terrible trigger, I never used an aftermarket trigger in a semi-auto pistol. Never needed one really. But I wanted the M&P C.O.R.E. Performance Center gun to be a good range target gun. So I had to replace the Trigger. I used an Apex 100-B54 Sear & Trigger kit. The total for the trigger, assembly blocks and shipping was $223.35.
       The Apex was, by far, better than the S&W Performance Center trigger. But in my opinion not the magnificent day/night trigger I read about on the forums. I’m not saying its not an excellent trigger, but its not a “breaks like a 1911 trigger”. At least not like my 1911’s.
      So after buying my M&P 2.0 Compact 4” I kicked around the idea of adding a trigger. At the time Apex was about the only option for the M&P. Now I have stumbled onto Overwatch Precision Triggers. They cost more than an Apex. I have no idea how long they have been around, but it makes me wonder why they are priced higher than the Apex? Are they better or is it a marketing ploy?
      Anyone have one?

      Got tired of staring at the thing...they are surprisingly easy to shoot without a brace and woo-wee what a fireball...but the triggers suck...tons of phillips screws look dumb, and lets just face it having a brace makes aiming easier...however one huge advantage to these is weight...3.4lbs stock....I still need to weigh it but even with the added kit I think im still at 5lbs or less....I got some other plans for later but im happy with its direction.
