My favorite Ruger SAs are my two OM 30 Carbine Blackhawks. One from the first year of production and one from the last. Like two nice bookends. The 3.75" birdshead ("Smaug" project) version has become the go-to fun gun and everybody wants to know what the heck it is and touch off a few rounds. I can spend a lot of range time with the M1 Carbine, the two Blackhawks and bunch of ammo.
