I have the later model BH with the lock so suspect they aren't the ones as they specify no lock in the ad. Too bad they look excellent.

Here is the part# for one with lock . Now if you don't like the medallion you order them from Altamont who makes them for Ruger but they will cost you $10 more .

That is the way it is with the Vaquero.

Eagle Grips

I changed grips on my .30 carbine Blackhawk. Wanted a set that filled my hand better but just don't like the looks of rubber on a single action.

I probably would not have picked the scroll design but for $25...

NOS Eagle grips

They look good! They really change the appearance of the big Ruger. I really dislike engraving or decoration on steel or wood but I do like checkering. Smooth grips feel fine until my hands sweat and then I don't feel secure. Those look good and look functional as well.

KS95B40 I like the grips they are pretty , but SASS /CAS don't allow them in there shoots . The birdshead fit me better with the SBH hammer thinned if I shoot and cock gun with 1 hand . If I shot 2 handed the plow handles with the SBH hammer thinned work good for me . If you like that grip you should look into the Bisley grip frame in your next gun . It is too large for me . The 30 carbine is one of my favorite cal in a SA Ruger .

Yes for over 30 yrs ...... The 32-20 pistols I sold you are a rimmed 30 carbine and some 32-20 brass will fit in some of the Ruger 30 carbine pistol . The 2 cal are 2 peas in a pod . 32-20 is .310 and 30 car is .308 .

Too bad I couldn't shoot 30 Carbine in the 32-20. I have a lot of it.

I remember shooting one way back that my wifes great uncle had. He handed it to me and see if you can hit he barrel. I said the BBL (55 gal drum) as it wasn't far away and had a muffler and piece of tailpipe hanging out the top. He said yes so I hit the BBL. He then said the muffler. I hit the muffler and he said the pipe. I missed the stinkin pipe. It was a Blackhawk and had to be 40 years ago.

The 30 carbine factory ammo is super loud in a pistol it is loaded for 18" rifle . The 32-20 ammo you have is the same load I shot in my Ruger 30 carbine pistol and is not loud .

It wouldn't even fit though would it? And the pressures would be too high.

They are not far off. 32-20 / .30 Carbine

Base dia. .354 / .354
Neck dia. .327 / .331
Case len. 1.315 / 1.290

The rim would seem the issue.

How about the pressures from military 30 Carbine ammo?
