I had them made by a gentleman that has since passed away, Brian Neely. Have these, a brass set marked "357 magnum" on my brass Bisley framed BH and ".357 max" for one of my SRM's I converted over to Bisley.

Well, no joy on the Bisley hammer. I received a KXR04000B hammer (picture below) rather than a KBR04000B Bisley hammer (despite going over the name and number twice with the Ruger CS rep). I'll try again in Monday.

Uh oh, this is looking like a discontinued, out of inventory part issue. If they have no more of a part, they substitute another part that's not right but will function, in this case, a standard hammer that will work, for a discontinued Bisley hammer.

In some situations it pays to have the sales clerk look in the envelope to see what's actually associated with the part number.

If that turns out to be true, time to shop for a used Bisley .22 in any configuration. Swap grip frames to keep the configuration of your gun, and resell the Bisley with transplanted plow handle grip frame and full disclosure or give it to a grandchild.

Ruger did a somewhat recent run of Bisley Single Sixes. Mine is under an older Single Six and is model 659 with a fired case date in August of 2002 and called a New Model Single Six Bisley.

A K in the number means a stainless part.

Bisley Hammer, Single Six blue Ruger # BR04000B.

That'll work, or trade it for a SS one.

True, no early model .22 Bisleys in SS steel made. But the stainless .22 Bisley hammers were the most currently made (for that fixed sight model shown above), about 15-20 years more recently.

I contacted Ruger CS today and re-ordered the Single Six Bisley stainless steel hammer -- KBR04000B. The CS rep knew specifically that this was the Bisley hammer and not the regular Single Six stainless steel hammer KXR04000B. KBR04000B is in stock, but won't ship until Jan. 4 because Ruger is doing inventory this week.

Of minor interest, the CS rep said that he (I originally ordered through a female rep) thought he'd spoken to me a few days ago about the SS Bisley hammer. It wasn't me, so someone else out there is also interested. The rep also said that he'd been surprised to learn that Ruger still carried an inventory of the SS Bisley hammer since they hadn't made the gun in quite some time.

Holding my breath for the right part to arrive!

Ruger doesn't offer "highly polished" blued parts. Only stainless would have that title.
