Unless one of those screws is stripped or the hole is stripped out, there is nothing to "Hold".

I would get it back from Ruger and keep it as is. I am thrilled the 3 screw I was just gifted is original. I would never in a million years consider sending it to Ruger for their "conversion."

I agree...get the gun back from Ruger as is. Opinions vary but mine is that any OM should stay the way it came from the factory...load it as any Colt from the past 130 years...load one chamber, skip one, then load the rest. Cock the hammer and let it down on the empty chamber and your GTG.

I've got OM's and New and load them all with the above procedure to keep things simple. But opinions vary and both my sons load all NM's with 6 rounds. (Don't know where I went wrong with them...must of come from their mother's side of the family!)

YMMv, Rod

Did they bung it up when they started the conversion?

I was thinking this also. That would be very sad if that's the case.

This may be one of those hard lessons in life. If you accept the replacement new model Ruger, at least you will have a serviceable handgun. If you insist that they return your old model revolver and it is in non functioning condition, I'm not sure if it can be repaired or not. It's a bad situation. Ruger may refuse to return it to you in it's current state. Please keep us informed.

I do not own any "using " old model balckhawks. I know how to safely use them but I love the feel of the xr3 red grip frame and do not like the older xr3 colt style. I may be odd but I do not liek the feel of the luger or glcok 17 or colt 1911 either.
