That is not a bad idea at all, if we stay with Turnbull we know they make guns pretty!

The 60th anniversary is an awesome consideration, the .44 Super Blackhawk would make a great piece.

I have tried to return Davids email on these guns and reserve my pair but keep getting a "mail failure" every time.
Is anyone else having this problem?

Next year is the 60th anniversary of the .44mag Super Blackhawk and I think it would be a timely and appropriate addition to the ROCS guns.

I've been purposefully staying out of this as I don't understand all the logistics and behind the scenes factors involved. I'd never make waves or grumble about these as I think it's a great idea overall and was happy to get on board with the program. So far, in all the posts I've only seen two basic suggestions. A 10/22 and the .44 Super Blackhawk. I'm sure there are things that the society must consider when making these offerings. Predictions of how many will be sold and the profit margin, collectibility, timing of the offering, etc. With next year being the 60th of the Blackhawk, if I had to vote on it, that would be my vote and I think that OM has the right idea. Whatever the next offering is, bring it on.

Terry, I'm not having this problem and I know one other guy who has been communicating with him today. PM me your email and I'll send it to David for him to contact you.

By now everyone knows I am a 10-22 nerd, but I have to agree with OM & Chuck, the Blackhawk would be cool.
I like the big bores, and will buy one for sure. The wheel guns are starting to stack up in the safes....
As a new guy here I do not want to over step my boundaries with my opinion. I just consider myself lucky to be
included in the forum.
Looking forward the the MkIV..........!! :)

Cheers,
JAY

I do not "own" these guns, I am but the next caretaker

A Super Blackhawk is in the works. But it is impossible to get any information from Ruger or the distributor. When you are talking about a 100 or so guns Ruger and the distributors do not get to excited. We can not demand, all we can do is request and than sit on our hands and wait. Right now we are waiting. If I find out when and how much believe me I will pass that information on.
