Single Six & Blackhawk cylinder frames were cast by Arwood Casting until Ruger set up their own casting operation in the 60s.

I think Arwood is where Stan Terhune came from as well?
Arwood also got in a little hot water with WBR as weren't they selling Blackhawk or Single-Six castings to a competitor? Herter's maybe?
