Searching for a barrel for my dads old blackhawk

Im trying to find a barrel for my dads old model blackhawk. It is a 1972 made 357 magnum 6.5 inch barrel. Many years ago a family member changed it to a 10 imcj bull barrel and discarded the original barrel, the new barrel never shot right. Im trying to fix dads old blackhawk up for our family but am having trouble finding a barrel for it. Needs to be marked
Sturm Ruger & Co. Inc.
I have found a few without the inc but want to make it right. Im sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum.

Numrich is out of stock. Have you tried GunBroker & eBay?

Ruger might even be able to help (but you'd probably have to get the transfer bar safety work done while they had the Blackhawk).

Ive checked numrich, ebay and gunbroker so far, Ive been unsuccessful in finding a barrel marked properly. There is a 6.5 357 barrel on gunbroker right now but it lacks the inc at the end of the roll mark. Ill have to check armslist. The transfer bar work was done long ago on this blackhawk, so might be worth a call to ruger as well.
Thank you to all the replies.

You might try contacting some of the custom gunsmiths who specialize in single actions. They could have a take-off barrel that would work.

Best Regards,

There is a 6.5" barrel over on the other Ruger Forum that is marked Inc.
