I have a new model Blackhawk in .45Colt that I would like to put a SBH hammer on. I've never disassembled a BH but have lots of info on it. Just wondering if I will need to do a lot of fitting or is it a drop in kind of thing?

P.S. Will Ruger sell me the part or is that one they want you to send them the gun?

I have done it several times and they have never required any fitting. I know Ruger used to sell them, but if for some reason now they wont you can buy them from Brownells.

I buy them from Brownell's. I've done a few and they have always just dropped right in. While it's apart Deadeye modify the pawl so it'll free spin.

Allows you to spin your cylinder in either direction freely. :) It'll drop right in just like your stock one too.
So I have to buy a new pawl also? (I know I have all the info on this just haven't had time to read it)

Just file the one that is in the gun. Make it look like the one in the pic and you'll be rockin and rollin in no time. :)

Not very. I have a few new pawls sitting around here. If you pay for the pawl I'll file it and ship it to you if you want. All you'll have to do is drop it in when you take the gun apart. I just buy the replacement pawls and file them. You could buy the power pawl already filed for $30. :roll: What a waste of money.

I think I'll try it myself, just keep yours handy incase I screw it up! :lol:
I really hate that BH cylinders don't line up with the ejector rod. I say baaaad words every time I have to go all the way around to get one I went too far on.

The Power pawl is totally different , Its not filed . It has full contact on ratchet , which is no big deal . In cowboy action shooting if you cock the hammer over 7/8 the way back and you drop the hammer and recock it , it will pass that chamber . With the power pawl you can reach the cylinder and turn it back and it wouldn't skip that chamber . I think it worth it for CAS OR SASS but for hunting and target shooting it is a waste of money , all 7 of my SA have the power pawl in them , but I shoot SASS .

Thanks for the info, tn, I didn't know that about the power pawl. I guess I should look into things a bit better. I just saw that I could do for $5 what that would do for $30 and said.... :shock: :?

BH - either one works just as good. You'd never tell the difference which one was installed.

If you shoot a ruger and you drop the hammer , the Power pawl will save you about 5 to 10 second off your time in a match . As far loading and unloading there no difference .
