Sorry partner, but this is totally inaccurate. I have a "Blackhawk .45 Flat Top Convertible"
and it is clearly marked "New Model" and it is built on a "New Vaquero"
All Blackhawks, EXCEPT THE FLATTOP MODELS,
are built on the large frame and are good to go for "Ruger Only" loads. But, if they are a "Flat Top" "New Model Blackhawk"
, even though they are marked "New Model" they are built on a medium frame and they are not.!
Caveat emptor folks, on some of what you read on the internet.
