In another exclusive contract with Lipsey’s, Ruger is making a limited run of single-action Bisley 44 Magnum revolvers. Â The new handguns feature a stainless steel finish and a 3 3/4″ barrel.
The new guns use the Super Blackhawk frame and the Bisley grip that was available from Ruger until recently. Â It now appears that Ruger only makes the Bisley grip on custom runs and distributor exclusives.
This particular handgun has a satin stainless steel finish with black grips. Â The sights are adjustable and replaceable should you want to put something brighter on the end of the barrel.
Speaking of the barrel, did I mention that it is less than 4″ long? Â Barrel lengths on single-action revolvers (NAA not included) tend to be longer rather than shorter. Â However, there is a great deal of interest in some circles for carrying a single-action revolver as a self-defense gun. Â This gun could certainly fit that role.
A more likely use for this gun is as a back-up gun for hunters, or even as a primary firearm for hikers and other sportsmen enjoying the outdoors inhabited by a bear and other large, man-eating creatures. Â Load up some hard-cast rounds for penetration, and you’ll be better served than a sharp stick and harsh word.
MSRP is $784, which is pretty reasonable for a high-quality revolver. Â Make sure you visit Lipsey’s for more information.
