Right now Ruger is making the New Blackhawk in 41 mag. The Bisley is an excellent twist on the theme and a bit costly in the used market. I have a Bisley 41 paired with a Marlin 1894 in 41 and I have been offered beau coup shekels for that pair...
As long as Ruger does not make them, the demand seems to go up for the used ones...
Bisley barrels for 41 were mostly 7.5 inches. Likely would be the same if run again...

Would love to see another run of the Accusport 5.5" .41 stainless Bisley. I need another one....


Cuz my wife took mine.

They've been out of production for years now so I don't see them bringing it back unless a distributor contracts a run - don't see that either. They're out there if you look but they will usually command a premium over the other Bisley chamberings. Have a pair here I was fortunate to grab fairly. Another of the stainless ones sits tucked away.
Unless the unfluted, rollmarked cylinder is a must, you can buy the .41 BH and just Bisley-ize it.

Thanks for the reply's guys. I have a 41 Bisley 7.5 with fluted cylinder. So I was asking for my cousin that has been looking for a near NIB/USED one for a while. I thought I had read some where a while back that Ruger was going to make another run. I did suggest that he convert his 41 BH to a Bisley and he is considering it.
Thanks again.

They did make another run of them but in the stainless Hunter model. Last time I looked over on GunBroker they were still being advertised. They were a special run of 500 I believe for Davidson's Distributing...

They looked just like this...

Ruger Bisley Hunter .44 Rem Mag SA SS 7.5" Revolvr : Revolvers at GunBroker.com

There are still three of the Super Blackhawk .41 Hunters left but I don't see any Bisleys.

But there is one "Hens Tooth" out there...

Ruger Blackhawk Bisley 41 mag RARE : Revolvers at GunBroker.com

Good luck...this is a very good price so far...they usually sell for $600+-

That has to be one of the best .41s ever made... Back in 2000/2001 I could not find a Bisley ANYWHERE..and I really wanted a stainless so I had one made...



It is a 5 shot with a slightly heavier barrel. If I ever run across one of the AccuSport models I'll get that one also...

Hey RJM52, thanks for finding all the hen's teeth. Out of all of them, I am particularly interested in the SS, 5 1/2 inch bisley model. Thanks again. Now to get the bank to release some Franklins for a purchase, that my friend may be harder than finding the chicken teeth..LOL

So if you really want one you could get the BH and "Bisleyfy" it with a grip frame and a trigger/hammer kit. I think this is the beauty of BHs, they're so customizable.

This one seems to be a good deal...

I had the .45 Colt/.45 ACP version a few years ago and it has beautiful balance. I am just not a Bisly Grip person. I have had 4 of the blue 7.5" guns .41s over the years and sold all of them. The one on my Reeder Custom doesn't have quite the same angles as the Ruger version and is more rounded.. But if you like the Bisley this stainless one is the best...

Let us know if you get it...

Just bought an Acusport 41 on gunbroker! Now I have to sit and wait for it to get here. In the meantime I'm gathering reloading supplies for it. Lots of work...another caliber to reload! LOL! Dennis
