Saddlebag Preacher: Just bought me a .45 convertible today. I've shot Single actions for years
and love them, but my eyes aren't what they used to be so I traded my New
Vaquero EDC farm gun for this Blackhawk. Love the sights. I also love to
reload in BP. Great review.
Nick C: I miss my stainless.357 magnum Blackhawk. I purchased it last year when
ammo went scarce, I regret selling it all the time, and I plan on getting
another one. this time in 4 5/8" and a .45 convertible model. but it has to
be stainless again! I love the way Ruger does stainless steel. It was
beautiful I got compliments at the range. They do have a 9mm conversion
cylinder for the .357/38spl Blackhawks, very hard to find though
JamieMG: I want one!!!
Would be a perfect match for my Vaquero and my Winchester 94 Legacy!!
Thx for sharing sootch00
Tripp426: I like semi-auto pistols as much as the next guy, but there sure is
something special about a revolver. Especially in single-action.
Gary McMaster: Great gun great video.
Oldandsickofit: Does anyone have any idea why the front sight on the Ruger Blackhawk is so
tall? I'm trying figure out why the hell anyone would put such a ridiculous
front sight on it.
FuriousJoeDK: The .45 Long colt is pretty much more powerful in all configurations than
the .45 ACP. Even with full house blackpowder loads the .45 long colt is a
lot more powerful than even +p .45 acp ammo. With 40 grains of Swiss 3fg
under a 255gr bullet that mofo is going down range with 1100fps through a
7.5 inch barrel. Good luck getting that performance with a .45 acp.
Marine052191: I wish I could have been born back in the 1800-1900s. Those were more
secure, simple times.
Marine052191: I got the Ruger Hunter Super Blackhawk in .44Magnum.
TehLivingDeath: Excellent, in-depth review and demo. Thanks!
wicked Hale: Great vid! I love my Ruger Blackhawk and Super Blackhawk.
Jerry C: Excellent video, I am a Ruger SA lover so this really brings a tingle to my
Michael Maghari: how much?
Spetznasfilms: you look like ted nuget
CraigKramer: thats such a cool gun. next on my list. thanks sootch.
Ofordgabings: Blackhawk... I see what they did there.
tequila1am: That's a bad ass hat!
cloud5buster: The nice thing about the blackhawk isn't the elimination of the half-rooster,
it's the addition of the transfer bar, making it safe to carry with all 6
cloud5buster: In all the older-style single-action revolvers I have, you don't have to
hold the half-rooster position with your thumb. It can't be accidentally
released. Half rooster is a position on the sear. The hammer will click into
the half-rooster position and stay there. A nice thing about half-rooster is that
it changed where the cylinder click indexed to line up with the loading
gate. You'll notice that if you rotate the blackhawk cylinder until it
clicks, the chamber will have moved too far to load/unload.
Lawson11b: New Subscriber. Love SA Rugers... pretty sure I'm in love with the Bearcat.
Thanks for the awesome video.
MrStargazer450: LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC!
Maddog Dullknife: Good video, love the hat, really love the Ruger Blackhawk single action
revolver. Have you made a video on the Vaquero...........Keep up the good
Redhawk44cal: Sootch, I really enjoy your informative and enjoyable video’s, the Ruger
Blackhawk in .357 was the first fullbore pistol I ever owned. BUT If you
ever come to the UK I will slap you round the back of the head with a wet
halibut. Bisley, as in the shooting ranges, is pronounced BIZLEE not
BEEZLEE, the same applies to the style of grips. I had my Blackhawk until
the UK government made it illegal, don’t let your government do the same.
Edmund Dantes: You should make the hat your trademark....
SouthWestReality: That's a nice hat.
superrugerblackhawk: Just look at the name
Bucksfantastic: purple hawk sound funnier.
Xdragoninchi: wow theres a pellet gun made by ruger that has the name black hawk LOL
Cosmas Bauer: Wow this is a beautiful gun! Nice piece of engineering!
tony93666: loooooove Ruger gear. If I had the dough, I'd buy nothing but Ruger.
Keith Nichols: The .45 Colt is often mislabeled as 45 Long Colt. In fact, with proper
loads, (in a strong revolver,such as Ruger & Freedom Arms,) is superior to
the .44 Magnum. You can send a projectile delivering a harder blow with
less pressure than the 44. Cool video!
Francis Borek: It was probably named after the Uberti Colt Peacemaker clone called the
Brock McMullin: Okay, where can I get a hat like that?
john smuth: Great review. I subscribed
silenttracks123: Sootch, slight correction to your video. The Ruger transfer bar raises up
when the trigger is pulled, transferring the hammer force to the firing
pin. The transfer bar does not raise up to protect the firing pin, it's the
opposite. When the transfer bar is down, the hammer cannot hit the firing
pin and a dropped revolver will not AD.
SKELLKILLSU: looks like the cattleman from red dead
shooterqqqq: .45 Colt and .45 Auto. I see no reason to say "long" as if by saying that,
it will raise your velocity. Otherwise a good history on Mr. Ruger's single
Liam Mackenzie: The Cattleman in red dead is a Colt 1873 Single Action Army
Eric06410: Not really for the Native Americans with respect to the liberty and freedom
theguitarmaninblack: I have a Ruger Air Rifle any expert could mistake it for a real gun from a
short distance. Its all metal and wood and was 100 bucks. That just shows
the quality of Ruger.
beverke7: nice review, love the humor here and there :-), keep enjoying your freedom
my US brothers and sisters, here in Europe you can forget about doing that
in your backyard, we still get to own guns but everything is registered and
costs a sh..load of money...
0ldSandwich: I bet you drink Starbucks
72darkf: Hard question. I really do like the blackhawk. Question is for me to get a
BH with the "modern" sights or going more towards a more traditional SA. As
I´ll have only one. And that will take a while still. Can´t have as many
handguns as I´d wish here. UNFORTUNATELY (maybe better for my bank account
Mike Nieswender: Question is .45 colt and .45 long colt the same round or are they different?
rajvader: Historical trivia: The .45 Colt is traditionally called "Long Colt" to
distinguish it from the less-powerful .45 S&W (Schofield), which was also
fired in the Colt .45 SAA. The .45ACP was actually patterned on the .45
S&W, which was the defacto standard army round before the abortive
transition to .38s. The full-house 1873 .45 Colt black powder loading was
255g bullet at about 1000fps, not far off modern magnums in effective
power. Today the Long COLT distinguishes from the Auto COLT pistol.
rat'a'dog: hehehe "hot loads" hehe
Josh Nankin: no "be strong, be of good courage"? That's always my favorite part.
DubachBard: There are dark points in our History, but there were always good Americans
who were on the right side. Our History is our History and made us all who
we are. You can keep yourself in the dark OR you can find the good in life
for the present. God bless America, America bless God again and Long Live
jj: Good video. Good gun. But I'm partial to the low profile sights. One less
thing to break. Especially as a ranch gun
