RUGER BLACKHAWK FLATTOP STAINLESS
.45 COLT / .45 ACP CONVERTIBLE W/ 5.5" BARREL
The mid-size Ruger Flattop sixguns are some of the finest packing guns ever produced.
The original 357's and the wildly popular 44 Specials have been highly
prized for their smaller dimensions and great balance. Now, you can
have this classic revolver in the most classic sixgun cartridge of them
all, the 45 Colt.
This is the first Ruger Flattop made in stainless steel with a 5-1/2"
barrel and is the first stainless steel Flattop chambered in 45 Colt.
As of right now, this is the only Ruger 45 Colt stainless steel single
action revolver with adjustable sights being produced. The regular
stainless steel Blackhawk in 45 Colt was discontinued by Ruger several
As a bonus, these guns are spec'd to include an auxillary 45 ACP cylinder.
This production run will also feature "gunfighter" style simulated
ivory grips that Ruger has used on some of their special edition guns,
such as the Joe Bowman
commemorative. For those of you who don't like the "cheesegrater" (as
some people call them) black plastic grips that have been included on
the Flattops, this will be a nicer feel. The front sights on these 45
Colt revolvers are taller than the sights on the 44 Specials revolvers
so that there is plenty of elevation available for various bullet
weights. On this stainless version, the front sight is pinned into the
base so you can switch the front sight out for other heights or
configurations that work best for you. All parts, including the
grip frame and ejector rod housing are made out of a brushed finish
stainless steel. Since Ruger introduced the Flattop 44 Special
in 2009, the 45 Colt version has been a constant request. This
configuration combined with the ruggedness of stainless steel
construction really make this gun ready for hard use in the field.
