I ordered a blued 5-1/2" NM Blackhawk in 45 Colt and it arrived at my dealer's shop last Friday. I can't pick it up until the 29th but I stopped in this morning to check it out before next Tues. I was very pleasantly surprised by the overall smoothness of the action and especially the trigger. Very slick, no creep and broke like glass at about 3-1/2 lbs. The dealer said that the newer Ruger single action revolvers seem to be coming that way from the factory fairly often. I am thinking that the only thing this revolver needs to be a really nice shooter is a few boxes of ammo through it. Anybody else have a similar experience with a recently purchased new Blackhawk?
