Ruger Super Blackhawk Capacity

The Ruger Super Blackhawk is chambered in .44 Magnum and can also safely fire .44 Special loads.  Rounds are loaded into the cylinder through the loading gate on the right side of the frame behind the cylinder and spent or unfired cases are ejected with the aid of a rod under the barrel.

Ruger Super Blackhawk Ergonomics

The Ruger Super Blackhawk is made with smooth wood grips that mimic the contours of the Colt Peacemaker.  This grip style allows the gun to slide back in the user’s hand under recoil which helps soften the blow to your wrist and forearm.

Ruger Super Blackhawk Fit & Finish

The Ruger Super Blackhawk is available with a blued finish and also in a stainless steel finish with varying surface finishes that include a satin finish or a high-polished finish.  In proper Ruger fashion, all metal components are hardened to an incredible strength to prevent damage and increase durability.
