Lipsey's Model 0818?

RUGER SUPER BLACKHAWK BISLEY 44 MAGNUM - RUKRBS-43N - LIPSEY'S EXCLUSIVE - 0818 - UPC:736676008186 - Lipseys.com

I first saw this on another thread here and have been smitten by it..... Anybody have some first hand experience with this Model 0818 Super Blackhawk? I've never owned a Bisley grip frame but have handled them and liked the way the felt in the hand. Short barrel may make a nice sidearm when out hunting wild hogs....

Looking for comments. Thanks!

Please don't let them make one in .45 Colt, ok? Please?

In a heartbeat! Rebarrel w/45 barrel, rechamber orginal cylinder with Manson reamer.

That would be the quick and easy conversion. How about a .50 caliber barrel and a 5 shot cylinder? That would be the not as quick and not as easy conversion but look what you would have!

Actually, I think you're on to a good thing. I have the same model with the plow handle. It's a great shooter with .44 Specials but a beast, with stock grips, shooting 44 Magnums. My guess is the Bisley grip would go a long way in mitigating that.

I'll also be interested in seeing any "first hand" reports from owners.

So how hard would it be to find a 3 3/4" barrel in .45 Colt? Or do you cut a barrel down? Or....?

Help - I'm going down the rabbit hole here!

I think I would be pretty happy with the gun as it is in 44 Mag. I have a couple of other DA revolvers in 44 Mag so I already feed them. I guess the Model 0818 is the same as the Talo Model 0817 except the Lipsey's version is a Bisley. Kinda itchin' for a Bisley.....

Finding a factory shorty 45 barrel might be tough since they are "trending" right now LOL, but using a take-off and cutting it down would work, or fitting it with a custom bull barrel on a Douglas blank would be bitchin!

Call Alan Harton at Single Action Service in Houston excellent smith, very reasonable prices and not a long backlog.. He quoted me for a custom barrel and it was something like 300 which I thought was a hell of a bargain considering who he is and looking at his work.

Q1, your comments never stink......

I thought you had the plow handle Talo version. Glad to hear you like it. I've never shot a Bisley frame, only fondled them at a gun shop but it sure feels nice. I haven't seen very many of these Lipsey's models but then I may not be paying attention.

Doug you are a bad influence.

So what would a .50 caliber round be in this "envelope"? All I can picture is 50 S&W Magnum and that sounds brutal in such a compact revolver.

A bisley grip enables you to handle heavy recoil better than other grips.

Well they have a .50 Special, or a .500 Linebaugh so you kinda get a convertible in a way, Bowen has a Bisley in .500 with a S&W barrel oh my is it a looker!

Here about halfway down is the .50 Special and farther down, the .500 Bisley:

Wow...

Doug you are either a terrific source of useful information or a gun-drug dealing "pusher" luring us into deeper addiction.

Those are some mind-blowing guns over at Bowen.

I have thought that a Ruger with a barrel shroud like a Dan Wesson would be the Bee's knees... We could have a caliber swap with changing out the cylinder, and swapping in a different barrel liner in about 2 1/2 minutes.

I had a Dan Wesson .45 Colt that had multiple barrels and shrouds and that thing was COOL man.

A .50 Special, a little on the warm side, would put a 350gr Keith type downrange about 950f/s and still be manageable in the recoil department. It could be slowed to 750f/s if you wanted a puppy dog fart as well. Of course it would stand up for +P velocities like any good Ruger would..
