A New .45

A couple of years ago, the Louisiana-based firearms distributor Lipsey’s put together a contract with Ruger to produce a Blackhawk Flattop .44 Special revolver. Seems they took notice that quite a few original Flattops in .357 Mag. were making their way to custom revolversmiths to be converted into the better caliber. I was just about to do the same when Lipsey’s announced the special run. Two barrel lengths were offered—4 5/8 and 5 1/2 inches—and because I am head-over-heels in love with the .44 Special cartridge I ordered one of each. The 4 5/8-incher is pretty much a constant rider in my truck.
