IR, my remark was just kidding the OP a little about wanting to fire rounds faster. Nothing toward your post at all.

I had a Blackhawk in 357 years ago, and hated it, never had anything beat the piss out my trigger finger so bad, the only after market grips available then where those huge Houge grips the made the hammer nearly unreachable.

Cool! I love those guns too. Looking for a single action 22 right now. I am going to train my horse to shoot off of. I figure a single action will be the safest for this as it would be less likely to discharge when we hit the ground.

Yes , "I'm still wet behind the ears" but the owner is in his 60's maybe close to 70. The barrel looked nice and long tho. I actually thought about buying it 400 seems to be a good price . What do yall think about the price ?
