Just got my Carryhawk and may have finally found a single action I am going to like. As soon as I have had an opportunity to put a few rounds of both 45 Colt and 45acp through it will post my impressions of both cartridges.

Purchased mine from Bud’s for $695+ $7.00 to cover insurance. I set up an E-account with them where they just debit from checking account. Simple to do, secure and no charges for this service.

Does your gun have the promised 4" barrel, or is it actually 4-5/8" as a couple others have posted on the Single Actions website?

I'll stick with my Alan Harton Montado in 45 Colt with 3-3/4" barrel. It covers everything I want it to cover.

I like the front sight on that Harton Montado. Wonder if it would fit on my a Flat Top?

Alan made that from scratch for me, including the base and the blade. As long as the height is right, it should fit fine. Alan only works on Colt's now, though.

You can check with a couple guys on Single Actions about pin-in front sight blades for the blackhawks, flat tops, etc.

Put 6 rounds each of some Underwood 45Colt Hard Cast and 45ACP range ammo through the Carryhawk, and I was disappointed that I have still not found a Blackhawk framed revolver I like. Birdshead worked fine and was comfortable to shoot. No issues with recoil with the +P Underwood ammo at all.

Think I’m going to give the Single Sevens a look and put the Carryhawk up for sale.

For those who have reported about the 4 5/8 barrel. What was your box marked? My gun is 4 5/8, and the box is also marked 4 5/8.
