Pair of I.H.M.S.A. Super Blackhawks

Post by 67stingray » Thu Jun 20, 2019 8:24 pm

A fellow has a post on Ruger.forum asking info on a set of 10 1/2" "International Handgun Metallic Silhouette Association". I know I've seen the singles but this is a pair in a Mahogany Display case, and my copy of R.E.N.E. states nothing about a set of them. Anyone know anything about them? Here's a link and to the post and a pic from it. https://rugerforum.net/ruger-single-act ... hawks.html

I've seen the double cased sets as well, but have never heard any info as to why most are singles and few are doubles.
Do these say 1 of 500 on them?

Not sure if they are marked but they do consecutive numbers.

He indicated that they are marked 467 and 468 on the bottom of the grip frame.

The only set I've ever seen or heard of was the set that David Bradshaw had when he was in compition in the 70s that I think Ruger made for him.
