Our Assessment: The New Model Blackhawk is an upgrade to the original Blackhawk first made in 1955 to fill the gap created when Colt stopped making single action revolvers. This new model has a transfer bar safety but no longer has the “3 clicks” of the old Blackhawks that were more similar to the “4 click” Colts. Ruger quality is paramount. These revolvers will last a lifetime. They are favorite of Cowboy Action Shooters.
