Just curious how much interest there is for a stainless .44 special on the flattop frame. TALO has the 4 5/8" one but wondering how a 5 1/2" model would do.


Please don't turn this into a "I'd rather have..." or an "I wish Ruger would make..." thread. This does have a distinct purpose to it. :wink:

Not me, I don't much care for the 5.5" length and will probably buy very few stainless guns in the future.

I'm pretty sure I saw that TALO edition offered in 5.5" when it first came out. Of course, I'm not even sure they're shipping yet, so what do I know?

I believe they are shipping the 4 5/8" version and hope to have mine soon. I think the short version is a pretty good all around hand gun. I have a blued and really want the stainless.
I know there is a lot of forum members who like the blued, but Ruger makes a great stainless in just about everything and , to me, it's a heck of a lot easier to maintain.

I am interested in a 5.5 inch stainless .44 special.

I ordered a Talo 4.75 version in case they dont make the 5.5 inch.

Absolutely. It seems like the next logical flattop offering.

This is the exact Blackhawk configuration I've been waiting for. I have cash waiting*...

Magnum, you will need to find a Lipsey dealer. You can find one by going to the Lipsey web site and use their search. Good luck, as it is my understanding that only 1000 are being produced and they are in the 4 5/8" configuration.
