Thanks for the number! Yes, either one would be a 7 1/2. From about 600-11000 or so up to 600-11588 are all 7 1/2 guns. Everything after 600-11588 has been scrapped. Haven't pinned down the blocks of numbers yet as to where all the 10 1/2 guns are, or the 7 1/2 guns, but right now it's running about 65% 10 1/2 vs. 35% 7 1/2, roughly, that is, Coogs.

600-11183 is a 71/2" and in great shape. It may be for sale, if anyone is interested. Send me a PM and I will contact the owner.

That is what I am working on, trying to figure out that ratio. Right now, with the numbers I ve recorded about 55/45 10 1/2 guns in the lead. I've seen supposed production numbers about different barrels lengths published somewhere, don't know where they came from though. First maxi's produced, which include all the low number guns are 10 1/2" Last ones out there, which were all produced in March of 1983 are 7 1/2" guns. I doubt that there are any guns out there that were actually produced in 1984. But if you have one that letters as such I'd like to know about it! You see, Ruger destroyed almost 5000 Maxi's. So there were only about 11,500 shipped out of a total production of around 16,314. Coogs.

TSHOOTER.... prefix number 600 denotes first (and, unfortunately, the last) Blackhawk Maximum cylinder frame. It is a part of the full serial number; a hyphen separates it from the individual gun number.
Thus, your Maximums are properly expressed as:
* 600-06409 for the 10-1/2".
* 600-07802 for the 7-1/2".

The hyphen makes it much easier to read the number of the gun.

Here's mine purchased 12-23-1982 new, 10-1/2" Serial Number 600-02692. Used it in IHMSA Silhouette matches. Most accurate revolver I ever shot. Too bad Ruger didn't heed Elgin Gates and add 1/8" to the frame and cylinder. Only fired ammo made with Federal IHMSA .357 Maximum brass, the stuff head stamped with the Ram logo. It now resides in my safe along side some other great notions.
