41 mag on a bisley frame

I was in one of the local gunshops today and came across a ruger 41 magnum with an unfluted cylinder 6-1/2 inch barrel and a bisley grip. I wasn't aware that ruger made this model in 41 mag. They don't list it on their site and I wondered if this might be a discontinued model. He has it listed for 629.00 with holsters and reloading dies and some brass. Still seems a bit much. Opinions?

I cannot answer your questions about whether it is or was something offered by Ruger in a catalog, but if I were anywhere near you, I would offer $550 for it all. In other words if it is in good to great condition, I would buy it. But I love .41 mag revolvers..JMHO..of course.

It is in great shape, in fact it looks to have been hardly used. I was thinking about offering 100.00 less than asking. Of course I really need another gun.

These are found on GB often. Just last week I saw a stainless Bisley 41 Mag NIB for $595.

They are often not a cataloged item but not terribly rare

You didn't mention if this was a used or new gun. Way too high for a preowned gun. Not a bad deal if its new with all the extras.

It was used. I think I could get it for less though, especially if I offered cash. I'd say it was 90% maybe better. Don't know what brand the dies are neither.

You sure it's not a 5.5" barrel? I have the same gun with that barrel but haven't seen it with a 6.5".

No, it's a 6.5 inch barrel.

Someone put a BISLEY grip frame, hammer and trigger on a standard 41 magnum BLACKHAWK...I've had several 5.5 inch 44 SUPER BLACKHAWKS and some VAQUEROS converted to BISLEYS. Parts are about $175; plus fitting and refinishing; plus grips. I wouldn't offer more than the price of a standard 41 BLACKHAWK for it.

Why did the guy who paid for all the custom work sell it?

There were Bisley models in .41 magnum made with a blued finish and the 7 1/2" bbl years back. There were also some with 5 1/2" stainless ones and some stainless Bisley Hunters in .41 magnum.
It's quite easy to change out parts on the Ruger SA's so any configuration is easily made, even a 6 1/2' Bisley. Personally I see that as high if it is as described, but bottom line is all if it's worth that to you. The .41 is an awesome cartridge (remember the mighty .44 is just a .429) The Bisley an awesome platform. Combined... Well I got 4 .41 magnums and 13 or more Bisleys, 3 of which are in .41 mag.

My 7.5" blue Bisley 41 mag.


Probably my favorite revolver.

If the one you saw had an unfluted cylinder I would guess that it is actually a 7.5". I don't believe the regular Blackhawk shipped with the unfluted cylinder.

Yep... That 7.5" Bisley is one of my favorites too. Accurate and easy to shoot. I still don't quite get how the Bisley frame works so well. I know the stuff about the angles and all, and believe it, but the significance of the difference is amazing to me. I love the Blackhawk (orig) but I am even more sold on the Bisley.
Additionally, the robust nature of all Blackhawks makes them highly prized to me.
My Bisley is a 41 too. I still think it may be better at 75 yards than my 44 Redhawk.
Enough of my palavering, I am tired and gonna hit the sack.
