Mine is a KBRN-45X, model 0475, s/n 38-XXXXX. Don't see it on the list. It's a Lipsey exclusive with a 3 1/2 inch barrel. It's supposed to be a Super Blackhawk according to Lipsey, but it's marked New Model Blackhawk. Was this posted previously?

According to my records, I bought my 45 Colt Acusport Bisley in December 2001 and my 44 Mag in November 2002. I bought my 41 in September 2003, so I think that date is correct

41 magnum 48-2079x date 8/28/2003 This one will never be 41 again as it was used for a conversion-not sure of the exact date i purchased it but it was 459.99 plus 6% Pa. sales tax

OK, picked one up at our local gunshow this weekend, but no box or other goodies-

Ser. #47-7753x, 45 Colt, 4 5/8" bbl, fluted cylinder. If i read the list right, its from 1997.

I do have a factory letter on the way to see if this actually left the factory as a Bisley. I can't seem to find anything from that vintage online with the fluted cylinder. I know the first Bisleys back in 1986 left the factory with a fluted cylinder until the rollmark issue was remedied, but a 1997? I'm starting to think either someone fit a Bisley grip frame to a blackhawk, or this is a limited edition (i.e. Talo) that I just haven't been able to find on the google. We'll see what the Ruger factory says, and I'll make sure to post it here.

If any of you guys have any insight I'd love to hear it.

Now that I've figured out how to post a pic, here it is-

Ok, just got my factory letter and it says my revolver was produced in September 1996 as a KBN-45. Hmmmmmm........
