2 guns bought and net gain = 0

The second gun I bought was the 1849 Colt from my other thread in pistols & revolvers. The first gun I picked up was a 2011 manufacture Ruger Blackhawk .357/9mm Convertible. It has the original box/paperwork, including the empty case still in the sealed envelope. If it's been fired, it hasn't been much. Pics later this week.

However, my daughter finally fired my Super Blackhawk and fell in love with it. And my wife claimed my NAA mini-revolver.

Sigh...

I know how you feel a few months ago I picked up a "broken" 10/22 for $80. Installed an
extractor and it was good to go. I was quite happy. then the wife got her hands on
it.

I know the feeling. I could tell my wife was uncomfortable shooting her XD 9mm, so I suggested she shoot my new Ruger Bearcat 22, to gain some confidence. Result, it's now hers!

jackaleman is an unknown quantity at this point
The Ruger Blackhawk is .357/.38 Special not 9mm. The 9mm round is a semi-auto round.

If you look at the primer end of the cartridge you will see the difference in the rims between the 9mm and .357 and 38 Special. The rounds are not intended to be interchangeable.

I hope this was not a typo. If it was I apologize.

Ruger did make a .357/9mm convertible Blackhawk. It comes with two different cylinders and moon clips.

It's an epidemic. I showed my wife a picture of a Bearcat Shopkeeper the other night and she said "when you get that for me you can have your Single-Six back. Maybe."
I bet that don't happen.

Actually, the Convertible Ruger SA's (45Colt/.45ACP, .357/9mm) use two cylinders and no moon clips, instead the auto rounds headspace on the case mouth, not a rim, just like they do in an auto. Moon clips would be a major pain in an SA because you would have to remove the cylinder each time. They are just to facilitate extraction in a DA revolver's chambers since there is no rim to grab, where as in a SA, the ejector rod punches each out. Think of a Colt's 1917 DA revolver, can fire .45 Auto Rim, .45 ACP in half moon (original) or full moon clips, or also loose .45 Auto's but they have to be punched out with something like a pencil.

Hope this clears some stuff up!

NO typo. The Blackhawk did come in this configuration, .357mag with a separate cylinder for 9mm. Great configuration and gun, I hope to come by one myself someday.

I saw a blued BH cylinder on the bay this am, in 9mm. Seller says it's most likely a NM. Item 330880545813
