I have a Ruger Super Blackhawk 357. Magnum that was left to me by my father a few years ago. I fired it for the first time this week.
I'm curious to the value of this gun. I have no intentions of selling, but have had some offers since I finally fired it and some friends fired it. I'm not sure of the production date, but I do know it's at least 20 years old and maybe much older. It has the "New Model" on the barrel and is "silver" with wood on the grip. I would guess the barrel to be 5".
Besides the value of the gun, is there any way I can find the production date with the serial number?
i would say your super blackhawk would be in the 300-500 range in very good condition for a private sale or at auction..dealers would proably offer around the 225-300 range for it ..as for the age you can go to rugers site and they can provide the manufacture date and even a free manual ..
To the best of my knowlege all ruger 357 Mag were Blavkhawks. The 44 Mag was called a Super Blackhawk. I know this to be true wnen I purchased my Blackhawk some time after 1965 and before 1970.
Not so, Ruger makes many other models in .357 magnum. There is the Black hawk and super blackhawk (both single action), then moving on to the double action revolers, you have the GP101, and the SP101, and the redhawk and super redhawk.
I do believe you are confusing the Blackhawk and the Super Blackhawk
uuhh! Old post
Uhhhhhh then why are you replying to it? An old mistake is still a mistake.
