I'm wondering if there was a 3 screw 45 lc Blackhawk and if there was would the S/B grip and trigger guard fit it.Any pics of any variant from back then would be great.

I have a couple of 4 5/8" barreled BH's, about 99%, and have been saving them for my boys for about 20 yrs now. Guess I'd better get with it; they're growing up quickly. Of course, they're not short on guns.

Yes, lots of the OM 45's were fitted with the brass grip frames. Here are two of my shooters.

I think freakindawgen has now been infected by a virus for which there is no cure for.

I not that bad,I've only got 4 Rugers so far..........

I've always liked the way the 3 screws are made.The minimum gap on the back of the cylinder and the recessed cambers has been missed on newer guns.Just makes a better looking gun.

Don't let Sam's post fool ya,, there are NOT a LOT of the OM 45's with factory verified brass frames. It's easier to buy the gun,, and later add the brass frame.
But,, yes,, you can have one like that.
