Is this list all Old Model 357s (Flattops and winged)? How can numbers be added to it?

Yep, all "three-screw" Old Model .357 Blackhawks. Just post here, the serial number and barrel length. That's all that's required in The List . . . no names or other personal data is ever included. If it has a 9mm cylinder, include that info as well, and If it has been "lettered" it's good info for the sake of documentation of ship date and any notable features such as a brass grip frame, or having had the transfer bar "safety conversion".

If you are not comfortable posting the info here publicly, a PM -- "conversation" -- to me will do nicely. :)

Yep, 9444 is there, shipped 5/58 as a BKH3. :oops:

This gun apparently shipped late, right after the ROSS guns. At some point the original 4-5/8" barrel was apparently changed out for the 6-1/2" one. There are a few so noted on Bob's List. The longer barrels weren't introduced until mid-1959.

I'm not sure any of the ones I owned/own were entered.

30-25771 -4-5/8
8131 - Don't remember length I think it was a 6"
8567 - 4-5/8
8131 was not there. Almost impossible for it to have been anything other than a 4-5/8" gun at that time, unless retrofitted, of which there are a handful. The 6-1/2" guns don't begin to show up until like serial number 22000, two years later.

Your other two were already on The List. :)



EDIT: See posts #26 & #27
