I am really interested in the 4 5/8" model in stainless with the unfluted cylinder and wood grips. Has anyone purchased one and at what price, may I ask, did you acquire it for? I've been attracted to a single action .44 magnum for a while and have recently been sold on Ruger thanks to the LCP and GP100 that I purchased. I owned a Bisley Blackhawk in .45 COLT that I loved but dumped it due to cost of ammo - I know, I know, what the hell am I thinking buying a .44 mag like that ammo is any cheaper than .45 COLT. Let's just say that .45 COLT seems better suited for a Vaquero (heh, heh). Anyway, if anyone has bought one then pics and pricing would help me out a lot. No one has the model I'm looking for in stock locally so I'm trying to avoid having to pay too much if I look into ordering one.
Damn you, Ruger! Why are your products so alluring!?!
Bought mine from a local shop; had to put it on layaway due to lack of funds, and I paid more then I would have from Bud's. I would have bought from Bud's Gunshop if I had had the full amount. I just picked it up a couple days ago and have not had the chance to fire it yet.
