If that is accurate, I am at a loss to imagine why Ruger wouldn't adopt it.

Started viewing the Rugers as platforms for customs several years ago...outside of a couple of Single Sixes, every Blackhawk I own has been "customized", be it engraved, exotic grips, full-mod customs or slight tweaking, or some combination of all of the above. And one of those Single Sixes is a Talo Blackbird, which will be heading to my engraver for 75% coverage and my grip maker for some cherry burl grips, and then to my son when he turns 10.

Shouldn't need a 'smith to swap out a hammer and trigger...check Youtube...it's pretty straightforward.

Perhaps thought of as encouragement, but n0 need to shame my reliance on my gunsmith, making sure it is done right rather being a Bubba gun.

Here you go. Takes about a year plus to get the conversion done. I have a converted GP100 5" Shoots both 10mm and 40 using moon clips. As accurate as the 357 mag-but more recoil

Nearly $1.00 a round is still pretty pricey. A hand loader that casts his projectiles can trim that price per round down to 8 to 10 cents a round, not counting cost pf brass. I have nothing invested in my brass except time as I pick it up at a local range.

I have two .41's, a Super Blackhawk Hunter and a 4 5/8 Blackhawk. We may just be a cult. I don't think there is enough difference in the 41 and 44 to matter, but every time want to plink, I pick up the 41. When I go deer hunting, I pick up the 41 SBH Hunter vs the 44 SBH Hunter.

I am a true fan of the .41 - next in line is the .327 Federal Mag.

I would like to see the range that has 41 Magnum brass lying about (or the fool who doesn't appreciate its value enough to keep it). I think most people are going to have to factor in cost per case. Then there is bullet, primer, powder, and amortization of your equipment.

Whatever load I use is from a credible, published source. I just load my magnums like magnums but not so hot that they aren't interesting to shoot. So far I use the standard 210-215 gr bullet except for the 230 gr gas checks currently up for loading, having tested well. XTPs shoot great, and the loads are right there in the book. I use IMR4227 and A2400, varied by the bullet and the validated load I was able to find.

Me too! The quintessential carry revolver. Loaded with what I believe was called the police load being a 210 gr. SWC @ 900 fps.

Are you talking the Flattop in the midsize frame in 41 mag? Not ever seen one of those. How many were made, and when. I'm not new to Ruger Blackhawks, but new to flattops. Just bought one of the Lipsey 45colt/45acp combo's.

The .41 mag. is one of the all time great cartridges. Hard hitting and accurate. Another great concept from the legendary lawman Bill Jordan and the equally legendary Elmer Keith. I also prefer it to the .429 mag. (aka .44 mag.) It's too bad that the original concept of the "perfect police cartridge" failed due to so many of my brothers and sisters in law enforcement were too wimpy to qualify with it. It was far superior to the .38/.357 and with the 900 fps police load, the model 58 would have filled the gap nicely for a couple of decades until the transition to the .40 S/W semi-auto was complete.
