If you send an old model blackhawk back to ruger for repair they will install the conversion automatically and give you the old parts. I think it makes a safer revolver. I will not own a shooting traditional single action.

No modifications to the gun. They just fit the conversion parts.

They stamp the bottom of the main frame, where the grip frame will hide it, with an "R".

At least I think it's an "R". I forget. Check your converted .30 if you swap out the parts.

Why not? When hunting with my OM Super Blackhawk 44 mag, I only chamber 5 rounds and the hammer is down on the empty chamber.

The solid sound of those 3 clicks on the OM are music to my ears.

Having shot SASS for many years I am used to loading one, skipping one and loading four.

Five is enough for me.

To each their own...
