I have an Unconverted OM Ruger Blackhawk in .45ACP and .45 Colt. It is very clean. I don't have the box for the gun.

Asking $650 with PPT at Turners Southbay. I can ship to an FFL for $50. ****SPF*****



PM for more details.

Would trade for OD Glock 21.

Hi there,

I really like the revolver... what is meant by unconverted?

03-04-2010, 12:23 AM
it means it has not gone to Ruger for the transfer bar upgrade... do not carry this gun with live round under the hammer.

That is correct. This is a five beans in the wheel gun as it does not have a transfer bar. Ruger will convert these guns to a transfer bar system for free. Most collectors prefer that they remain unconverted, but Ruger sends back the original parts.

Stay away from converted guns unless the old parts are included. This gun here will have those four solid clicks when you cock it. Like a Colt. It feels strong and bank vault solid. Converted ones rattle and I heard trigger pull is sometimes compromized. This is a real good one here.

Ahhhh.... now I understand... I have one in the 357/9mm configuration and love having two cylinders. I was trying to have an extra 45 acp cylinder for my 45 colt but seem like too much of a hassel.

I like this one.

I also read Ruger wont send back the old parts anymore when they're doing the conversion? Any truth to this?

Not sure, I thought you could request them back. I replied to your pm
