I stopped at my FFL yesterday to pick up a little J frame 38 I bought off the Colt Forum. Laying in the bottom shelf of the display case was a Blackhawk. Closer examination revealed 3 screws and 30 Carbine. Asking price $599.

I figured it was on consignment, so asked if price was firm. FFL said he could go to $540 so I said put it on my bill.

The only marks on the gun is a bit of turn ring on the cylinder. Some red paint on the front sight.

I may not have gotten a steal of a deal, but you gotta help an FFL that does $15 transfers stay in business, correct?

Kudos!
I just did a display last weekend in Ohio on the OM .30 Carbine Blackhawk. Truly a good gun! You did just fine,, and especially by supporting the LOCAL gun shop!

Exactly keep them local shops going! Buying guns from a place like Bud's undermines

Congratulations, but as you said your first Old Model, you need more :D
I bought one last month off Gunbroker. Like new in box no paperwork though. Paid more than you did :oops:
No when I get the empties to quit sticking in the chambers I'll be happy. Made it to the forth cylinder full before three stuck, more polishing to come.

First 3 Screw? We all gotta start somewhere. But as my wife says, with a grin, when's it gonna stop? :-)

All the 3 screw 30 Carbines are very accurate!

Congratulations!
I’d say you did fine on the price... $540 today is less than $74 in 1968 dollars.

Now, let’s see some pictures.

OM Blackhawk in 30 Carbine was my first OM. $150 OTD. Yep, my local neighborhood shop too. Sadly, Jack died last year. I miss talking with that old fart!

That reminds me: I gotta take mine out and shake up the 'combat' shooters at the range. They'll be shooting X rounds a minute at 4 yd. targets and everything stops when I touch off my OM .30 Carbine. YUP, makes you SMILE..... :-)

Beavo, well done. Yep, targets at 4 yds with 300 holes in them!

One of my favorite memories from my teens was taking my dad's 30 carbine out to the range and shooting a Rubik's Cube with it. It sprayed cubes everywhere! And with surplus ammo that thing had some kind of bark!
