    Hi,

    I have an all original Ruger Blackhawk Flattop 44 Magnum with a 7 1/2"" Barrel. My understanding is that there were only 750 of them made with this barrel length. I'm looking to sell it and am having a hard time finding an appropriate value. Some people have told me $450 and some have told me $2000. I can't imagine any Blackhawk selling for $2000. I'm sure it's somewhere in the middle, I just don't know where.

    Like I said, the gun is all original (grips, sights, trigger/hammer mechanism, etc.). I do not have the original box or paperwork. There is some holster wear at the muzzle and some on the cylinder. There is also a small nick in the frame at the bottom of the grip. I'll attach pictures.

    Any insight is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    PC

    Yep, the 7-1/2"" barrel .44 Flattops are very collectible and desireable guns. I would estimate you gun with the wear shown in the pictures to be in the $1300 - 1400 range. What is the serail number? Lots of Collectors try to pair up consecutive serial numbers so that may help in your sale.
    You may want to check the screw holding down the rear sight....looks like it is all the way down and scratching the cylinder.

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for the reply. The screw was down all the way when my uncle gave me the gun. I backed it up a few turns. Thanks for the tip (kind of confirms that you know what your talking about...).

    That value is good news to me. Should I post the serial number online or just give it to someone who shows interest in the revolver? Don't know if it's a bad idea to put that information online or not.

    Also, do you think that this website is the best place to post this revolver for sale? Or, should I use a sight like www.gunbroker.com?

    Thanks again for your reply,

    Frank

    I see no harm in posting the serail number on-line.
    Much more exposure on the gun selling sites like Gun Broker, Guns America, Guns International, Auction Arms, etc. I personally like Guns America and Guns International. They are not necessarily auctions and you can just list your asking price and see if you get any interest. If not you can always adjust the price downward.

    Hi Bill,

    I guess I can't post it for sale here. I'm not a RCA member. I'll post it on the sites you recommended.

    Let me know if you know anyone that may be interested in the revolver.

    Thanks for all of your help.
