04-01-2009 (fired case date)
88-32351 (serial #)

Here's my misprinted oddball. Its a .41 mag but the box sticker says its a .44. Serial # is printed correct (box decal matches gun). But its definitely a .41, catalog no. KS-47NHB on decal but should be KS-417NHB. Fired casing envelope also says .44 but casing is a .41 in it.

That's not the half of it! Your gun is also supposed to say "SUPER BLACKHAWK" on the left side of the cylinder frame. You have one of a few made with the "BLACKHAWK" rollmark.

Quick question(s): I'm kind of newbie here, though I spend a fair amount of time over on the S&W forum - Is this a reference to Rugerforum.net?, and, Could somebody please tell me what the differences are between Rugerforum.com and Rugerforum.net?

I called Acusport and the sales guy I talked to looked it up in his system and there was no indication of any in stock or a pending order. Not to say it can't happen, just saying I couldn't order one when I just called :wink:

I just purchased a Bisley Convertible 45 in stainless steel from Seebs on gunbroker via my LGS.
They are a Distributor Exclusive and were ordered by Williams Shooting Sports.They in turn have doled them out to selected dealers for retail sale.If you have an FFL you can buy them direct but I think the minimum purchase is 10....

I didn't read it all, but since you're talking numbers, I've recently been getting in and seeing other Bisley 5.5" stainless .45 Colt guns from Williams in the 0472 and 0470 models with 38- serial numbers instead of 48-

I've asked Williams, and they said they got shipments in with both lead numbers, and have no idea what's going on.

More numbers for you to chase :!:

I printed something on this in Red Eagle News Exchange a while back. At some point, either by error or by design, Ruger began serial numbering all of their Blackhawk models with a 38- prefix instead of a 48- for the .41 and .45 Blackhawks and a 51- for the .30 Carbine. The highest normal serial number I have seen is 48-64227, a BN45X blue .45 Convertible 7-1/2" with a Born-on-date of December 13, 2013. To date, I have not heard of another normally serial numbered Blackhawk...but I also haven't heard of any new mfg. Blackhawks, so think Ruger may be producing something else at this time.
So keep posting your serial numbers!! Maybe we can figure out when the serial number change to 38- occurred and maybe we'll find out eventually when Ruger ever goes back to their normal serial numbering.
