Ahh, sweet.

4" S&W barrel no less and chamfered cyl! What length barrel did you start with?

I'm just finishing up an Old Model Super BH with S&W 8 3/8" barrel now 7 1/2" after re-threading. Had to remove the extractor rod shroud. Would have been easier to make a short barrel.

Started with a 8 3/8" from a M57 that found its way to PA from Oregon. I had a hard time deciding between the 4" and 5 1/2".

Looking forward to seeing what your old super looks like after the project is complete!

Will be happy to post. I'll start with all parts polished and apart ready for bluing in a week or so.

I really think it is time for Ruger to build the .41Mag and 10mm on the NMFT and NV frame. Jason, are you there?

Just wondering aloud, is there a safety issue with the length of the cylinder and the chance of interchanging cylinders? In other words, generally speaking, in a given frame size larger bore cylinders can not be installed in a frame with a smaller bore barrel for obvious reasons. Since we have NMFT's in 357, 44 and 45 already, is there sufficient variance between the 357 and 44 cylinders to insert a 41 cylinder in between without issue?

I would love to have one! .41 Magnum is my favorite caliber.

My thought exactly re the 10mm...but more. My long term plan, yet to be realized, is a "triple threat" .38-40/.40/10mm based on the NV. Cylinder treatment unique to each for quick 'n easy differentiation.
- The .38-40 "just because" for tradition/old timey sakes. Heavily chamfered cylinder.
- .40 S&W for cheap(er) range and plinking, desert trail use (Easy over counter snakeshot availability), no additional chamfer over stock.
- 10mm unfluted, for hunting, "bear country" trail/camp.

Edit: I would have this labeled simply .40 CAL., would cover it all.

A little reluctant to mess with my existing .357 NV as donor, however, as it's one of the relatively rare early ones with the "CCH" treatment, for those who might care, and as new unfired, so thinking of swapping that out for a 'who cares?' recent model.
Stay tuned!

So Ruger/Lipseys/Davidson's, you could make this a helluva lot easier by issuing at least one of the above cartridges, especially .38-40, so it's just a matter of having two extra cylinders made!

By the way, been awhile since I dabbled in these or heard discussion regarding, did Ruger end up ridding these (newer single actions) of the lock or are they still infested? All my other NVs, middle aged I guess you'd say, have the locks.

I think the locks are gone on later production. Please sign me up for a Flat top Blackhawk in either .41 or 10mm. It would be the ideal vehicle for the 41 Special or the 3 cylinder 10/40/38-40 set up. I'd also take a GP-100 in 41 magnum. Bob!! :D
