We have 2:
My wife's NM Blackhawk:



My OM Blackhawk (Converted, unfortunately) with bighorn grips and matching knife:


I usually carry a 45 OM Blackhawk or a custom Reeder 454. She carries hers for bear and general camping.

The scoped .41 mag Blackhawk, the two standard .41 Bisleys and the stainless .41 Bisley are backed by the Marlin 1894FG (.41 mag lever gun) so, ummm, yup, still got one.

I'll take a .41 over the mighty .429 magnum everyone calls a .44 anyway.

I recently bought a OM ( 4-5/8") in 95% condition for $500.00 It will fit nice in my collection between my two OM 45lc's. I bought starline brass and cast up some 210 gr swc bullets. I will do reloading this week for it.

I just recently picked up a New Model Blackhawk (1974 vintage) dirt-cheap because it's missing the ejector rod housing.

Can't wait for it to arrive at my LGS so I can put it together & go through about two 50-round boxes of 210-grain SWCs.

That knife has got to be one of the finest-looking blades I've EVER seen.

I have a 4 5/8 Blackhawk in 41mag that I've had for along time. It has a Super Blackhawk grip frame on it.
I don't carry as much as I use to. I have since been carrying my Blackhawk in 45 colt.

Does a .41 BH have the bigger frame than the .357s?

I've also thought about the .45/45 ACP version, but my last .45 Colt
experience left me with lack-luster accuracy.

I went deer hunting today with a Ruger 3 screw 41 Magnum. I still have some Speer JHP-SWC 200 grain bullet with 18 grains of the old 2400 powder. I have some current Deep Curl 210 grain bullets but all good things come to those that wait. I got my first whitetail with the 41 Magnum and hope to get more in the future.

Oops! Got one of those tucked away as well, I'd forgotten about. Passed on the 4 5/8" one.
