Just a nitpic but the top straps on large frame Blackhawks are visible thicker than the original .44 Magnum flattops. (About 0.35" versus .33")


That's a true observation, but speaking in context of this thread, it wasn't done for strength, only added weight to help absorb recoil. The frame was already far stronger than the weakest link; the cylinder.

I have a .357 OM that was converted to .41 Magnum. It works.

But I actually agree with Craig... I would far rather see Ruger produce a mid-frame in .41 Special and escort that round into a standard. The shorter case would actually be more useful anyway in a mid-frame length cylinder.

Jason said SAAMI cartridges, only. Don't get me wrong, I'd like a .41spl on a mid frame. I've already got the brass.

So get the cartridge to that point! Ruger and Hornady have experience in this area. Cowboy shooters would love it. Standardize it as a .41 Cowboy Special or even .41 Ruger Special. Whatever it takes.

Still working on my version. Little more than a box of parts for now. But we're getting closer.

Or....I still would settle for a 10MM in the medium frame.

When loaded to equal pressures, the 10MM give ballistics close enough to the .41 Mg to be just as useful. 8)

Just sending off my Vaquero parts today to Bowen to have a 41 Vaquero made. Super excited. This has been sitting in my safe for years, since the last smith botched it.
