Blackhawk .327

Years ago bought my grandpa a .327 Blackhawk. He recently passed and gave it to me, but I have no use for it. Local gun shop values it at 350-400 trade in. Is that fair? I can’t remember what we paid for it. Gun has had less than 1/2 box of bullets shot through it. Thanks for the help.

I have no idea of the OP's age, but my advice is that he will regret selling grandpa's gun when he is older. Single actions may hold no appeal for someone raised in the "polymer/tactical/firepower " era, but try the revolver out. Enjoy the slower pace of shooting. You just might improve your skills. At least you will remember your grandfather when you hold the revolver.

I recommend you reconsider and keep it. If you choose to sell it please consider selling it to someone that appreciates the Ruger Blackhawk in .327. You can choose to do what you think is best for you but for me I would want to keep something from my loved one. Good luck to you and good luck.

Thank you for the replies. I am 33 and he also gave me a .22-250 which I plan to keep and pass to one of my boys. He never cared for the revolver, insisting it was too expensive to shoot. I resonate with the idea of selling it to someone who will appreciate it, and I think that is why I was looking to sell it. If I keep it, it stays in the box and never seen or used.

That might be a gun you want to re-load for. I know that's a big step but most pistol shooters re-load to keep the price down for one. It also fun to tune your loads to your liking/type of shooting you do. I believe you can shoot anything from 32 longs, 32 H&R mag, and the full 327 mag in that gun.

If I came across a Blackhawk in the 327, I’d snatch it up in a hurry. The 32 s&w long and 327 federal magnum are much easier to find than the 32 h&r magnum. Research the calibers and the Ruger Blackhawk. You just might want to keep it. Best wishes with your decision.

Found this. According to the s/n on this Blackhawk pictured its a 2010 year model. I believe if your grandfathers Blackhawk is in 98%+ condition. The $350-$400 is definitely a wholesale offer considering its not made anymore. It does seem the .32 caliber has a small following, but there are a few of us that enjoy shooting them.

I’ve seen the Blackhawk .327 sell on Gunbroker no less than $600 and up to about a grand. They are hard to find and some people will pay a premium for one. Don’t think your LGS is being fair on their offer for a trade.

I have the Blackhawk 8 shot in 327FedMag.

You have one of the very best shooters made in that caliber. It can handle hot loads like a tank handles BB's.

Please rethink your position about selling. Over the years, your kids will look at you with disgust when they hear you had Grandpa's blackhawk 327 and let it get away for paper money. I don't think I would kill anybody for one of my grandpa's guns, but I would be willing to maim them pretty good

I absolutely love mine and I had to search for it for months. I have several handguns in almost every caliber out there. The 327 in Blackhawk would be last to leave.

and these increase every day in value. Gunbroker completed searches proves it. $1000 gun if I've ever seen one. LGS and pawn shops pay 50%.
The S&W model 16-4 is only 32H&Rmag and it is at $1700 and rising daily. These 32's are highly sought after by more and more folks who study, read, and handload.
