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 years ago. 

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.

Awesome gun combining the classic lines of a single action and the power/versatility of the 45ACP. I wanted a 45 single action without the 45 Colt ammo price and this gun is one of the few. These flattops are the perfect size for a nonbrusier 45. Buying experience was easy and had the blackhawk in my possion in less than a week.
