Very nice Ruger Blackhawk 5.5 barrel seems new to me. My ? Here is Stainless Steel model all steel construction including the grip frame or polished aluminum?? I know the Blued carbon steel is a aluminum grip frame anodized or painted black! I'm a fan of all steel construction my Ruger Vaquero Bisley is the older large frame is all stainless steel.

Also, I don't know why they aren't listed on Ruger's site but there are several other 357/9mm flattop models as well. I do see 5244, 5245, and 5246 show up on Gunbroker occasionally.

5244 - blued 4 5/8

5245 - stainless 4 5/8

5246 - blued 5 1/2
https://www.lipseys.com/itemdetail.a...emno=RUNVB-35X

5247 - stainless 5 1/2

Thank's for the information.
I'll be calling some of the other dealer's in the area.
On Gunbroker early last month there quite a few 0320's
for sale but, even those have dried up.
Thank's Again

We shoot the crap outta mine on 9mm. Its not much louder than a 22 LR. And CCI ammo @ $10 a box, almost as cheap as a 22 LR,,, with WAYyyyyyy bigger holes, and alot more fun. No recoil at all with the 9mm. . Its also very accurate with the 9mm. It certainly passed my expectations. I have other 357's, which I rarely shoot. This convertable will probably NEVER see the 357 cylinder fired. I already took it out of the case and put it in the safe.

Its certainly alot of cheap fun.

There's one on Gunbroker right now but you're right that I don't see any available anywhere else.

Gorgeous. A GS around Pittsburgh had An 0320 when I was looking for one last year, and the gougher wanted $800.

Sp the first 0318 I found, I bought it. STILL NOT dissapointed,, but I prefer stainless Ruger's. .

Amazingly I see the 0320 available on Buds right now. That's where I got mine but for about $40 cheaper (almost a year ago). I know they don't last long so I would grab it if you want it. It also doesn't have the stupid "team buds only" lock on it so it's up for grabs by anyone.

Thank's Again for the information.
Item number 644771237 from Gunbroker was purchased by US.
Yep, the Blackhawk model 0320 should be sent out Monday.
Our Dealer/Friend got all of the details worked out today.
Really didn't want to say any thing about it until it happened.
Was on the phone to numerous shops Friday and same answer big No
on 0320 or the 5247.
The local shops could get a holed of the Blued ones but, no stainless one's.
Even the Wife likes the look of the Stainless. That is a Big Plus.
I know it will be only 3-4 days (maybe) until we might get it but, it will be a very long wait.
Overall glad we were able to get the 0320 model.........

I love this gun, Shoot a lot of 9mm, but the real fun is 357. Recoil is on this gun is of the fun type, most certainly not harsh. I buy a lot of it from Freedom Munitions. Doesn't kill me in price.

Great! I definitely love mine. I do tend to shoot more 9mm just because it's cheaper but it's fun to switch to 357 for the difference in fun! I don't know if it's just me but my 0446 convertible 45 seems to have more snappy recoil and starts to hurt after a few cylinders. The 0320 is heavier so maybe that's why it seems more comfortable to me even when shooting 357.
