back in Sept I had shown a picture of a new model Blackhawk in .30 carbine that was customized, rechambered to 32-20,,,,,well here we go, 3 months later, and I was brought another ,this time Old model BKH-31 that was made into a convertible, the spare cylinder , non fluted in 32-20,,,done by Andy Horvath over here in Ohio, so I had to get it...nice job too.......

I did learn something as to how 'few' old model first year 30 carbine Blackhawks were made (thank you Chad & RENE)....so this covers BOTH 1968 as well as early 1969. Gee I should have paid attention when all you Blackhawk collectors 'spoke', or looked at the displays...(Some great ones by the way in all these years).......... 8) :roll: :wink:

Reminds me of when Don W had #9,10 and 11, and that got split up after he passed :(
