Dear Guest
Your Super Blackhawk is an Old Model, manufactured in 1970. Do you know whether it was returned to the factory to have the hammer block installed? If not, the interest (and the value) as a collector's item is greatly enhanced.
If you are not sure, I'll try to walk you through the means of determining it.
One clue would be if the original hammer parts are with the gun in a little plastic bag. Ruger's practice was to return them with the gun when they shipped it back to the owner.
Let me know.
Regards,
JP

In the neighborhood of $750. Maybe a little more to the right buyer.
