    If anyone out there is interested. I have an "old model" 3 screw Ruger in .45 Long Colt. Has the 7 1/2" barrel, a Super Blackhawk grip frame and fat hammer and trigger. It is nickel plated. Production date is May 1973 and I've owned it since about that time. So almost 40 years. I also have an "old model" 3 screw Super Single Six Convertible with 6 1/2" barrel, also nickel plated. Production date is April 1972, and I've owned it too since just after that. The aluminum grip was lengthened by my father when he worked at Pan Am. It fits much better in your hand than factory. Your pinky doesn't dangle in the air. Made a set of grips for it back then that look original to the gun. The ejector rod housing on both guns is black as are the grips. So there is the perfect contrast of Nickel and black. They are both for sale. Make me a fair offer of what you think they are worth. I can't seem to find any good price info anywhere on the internet as to what their value might b. About a year and a half ago, someone I thought was a "friend" screwed me royally when I need cash and didn't have a computer to look up things, as I do now. I sold him a Ruger .44 Mag. Super Blackhawk in a mahogany presentation case along with a Ruger .357 that looked like the ones described above, for $450!!! Found out just recently that the box alone could bring more than $500! The gun and box is worth between $1100-1200! And since a deal is a deal, I, unfortunately,can't go an kill him with my remaining Rugers!!! The lesson learned is...."don't sell anything when you're desperate!" No matter how hungry you are.

    I may be a bit of a prude, after all I'm 50, I am entitled to some modicum of individuality. But I am wondering when Ruger will make the SASS in blue, 4 3/4" barrel, .45 LC, and sold singularly. Arthur has take away my reason for carrying two of them and since it will be for self protection, I don't like flashy nor longer than it needs to be.
    Presently, I carry a similar Colt package, built in the 1950's, and want to retire it, for preservation. I have long admired other contenders from Taurus and Berretta, but their no longer around and I don't trust the sub par entrees (I.e. EMF and the like)
