Dunno if it's a collector thing, per se, but they are pretty scarce. The earliest ones with fluted cylinders are even rarer. If yer a .41 fan, you gotta snag the really nice ones when you find 'em.

Congrats on the new 41s. The 41 is one underrated and fine shooting caliber. I also have a 41 on the Bisley frame. If you haven't shot it yet you're in for a pleasant surprise. It is very comfortable and I wish I had more.

Have not shot it yet. Hope to fix that pretty soon.
It does have the fluted cylinder..

Few more posts and maybe I can actually add a picture. (-:}

Got to take the Bisley out for a shoot today. May have been the first time it's been fired. It now has a turn ring on the cylinder. Part of the fun. It's a surprisingly fun and accurate gun to shoot. I think the Bisley frame just fits my hands a lot better than the regular Blackhawk does. I'll probably end up swapping off the Blackhawk and keeping the Bisley.

I have fair sized thin hands and the Blackhawk grips are smaller and shorter, not nearly as comfortable in my hand. The .41 Redhawk I have also has grips that feel a little small for me. Bisley is going to be a keeper I think.

arlon I have a Ruger Vaquero Bisley old model large frame. Mine is stainless steel 5.5 barrel in .357 Magnum. You were so so right the all steel construction of the Bisley Grip frame. To me the old large framed guns the actions are much more precise and made so much smoother actions etc. I had a NM Ruger Vaquero didn't like it at all very inaccurate POS!!! BTW arlon I really like your Blackhawk Bisley .41 Magnum very great caliber. Now you need to find yourself a Lever Action rifle in .41 Magnum. I have 2 Lever Action .357 rifles to go with 3 of my .357 revolvers.

This. In fact, here's my trio of .41s.
