Need some advice for a Ruger Blackhawk

I want to take my Ruger in to a gun smith and have it work over a bit. I have it toped with a scope, and use it for hunting hogs (44 mag). I know I want the trigger lighten, and was woundering what else I should look into. Also does anyone have some suggestions for a gunsmith. The gun smith out here wount touch revolvers. I live in Sacramento. Thanks.

Go to the ruger forum and ask that question

Also look for the smiths name that does the cylinder chamber bore truing. Cannot remember the name now. I had my 5.5 Bisley 45 LC done and it improves the accuracy for sure. Think it was under $50

Wolff makes a spring kit for the Rugers that improves them a lot. I had my Super Blackhawk done by a local guy (out of business now). He installed the springs, stoned the trigger surfaces, installed aftermarket sights, etc. Slicked the action up nicely...

Good luck with your project.

What is the cost on something like that?

Your budget is going to be the deciding factor on what you should get done to it.
Midway has spring kits, very easy to install.

Firearrow:

I had that done almost 20 years ago, so the price I paid then would make you cry

Both Midway and Brownells have the spring kits, and any good wheelgun smith can slick things up for you. With care, you can do it yourself, but you have to be careful not to change any angles, and remember it's easier to remove metal than to replace it. All you're really after is a polishing of the critical surfaces.

Have fun,

Brian

Re: Need some advice for a Ruger Blackhawk

I am game for the trigger job, but when it comes to removing the metal leave it to experts. I am looking forward to having the work done so that I can put some hurten on some hogs latter in the year. Thanks for your guys help. If you guys can post some pictures of your rigs. Would love to see some worked over revolvers.
