I recently acquired a Ruger New Model Blackhawk in .41 Mag. Its stainless steel. Are these rare guns? I dont see too many Stainless .41 RNMB. It's a great looking revolver.

They are not rare but they are very good. Enjoy. On anything less than big bear a 41 mag will do almost all a 44 mag will do with less recoil.

Looks just like the beauty at our lgs. Only thing I'm missing is cash,permit,and getting it into house without the wife seeing it.

I know what u mean, i hate getting rid of guns. I mostly trade them. Last year i traded a S&W 645 for a AK-74. That was the gun used on Miami Vice by Crockett. I was so stupid for that. THEN i traded the AK-74 for a Henry Big Boy .357 and then i felt a little better!

Don't know how 'rare' the stainless .41 Blackhawks are, but as far as I know Ruger has only done that one run for Davidson's. Certainly haven't seen any in quite a while. I like my 6.5" a bunch, but don't get along with the XR3-RED grip frame with stiff loads & I'm wanting to either Bisley it or go to a SBH Hunter grip frame & hammer.

Short version:
Ruger makes several of their single actions with a grip frame which is more vertical and a bit more room before your knuckle hits the trigger guard. They have a lower (easier to reach) hammer spur. The design goes back to a Colt target model made more than a century to when most 'serious' target shooting took place 'across the pond' and Bisley ranges in England were pretty famous.

Top & 3rd are Bisleys & my preference for gob-stopper loads due to how they fit my hand & manage recoil.
