August 1958 Argosy Magazine Image

There ARE a few interesting items in this pic. I'd sure like to know more about "what's there". Especially the
engraved Blackhawk and the "non-fluted" cylinder Flattop.

Carl,

That is indeed interesting. That non-fluted cylinder especially...a full year before Ruger launched the Super Blackhawk...sure would be neat to come up across that one laying on a table at a gunshow, eh? One can only hope.

Thanks for sharing, that is really interesting.

You are welcome! I'd sure like to see an "original" copy of the photo. Shucks, the LWAC, the RSSE and the Target Auto w/brake
are also very interesting. The .44 Flattop's front sight looks more like the early BKH-3's sight....... :?:

Carl,

I have the August, 1958 edition of Argosy and that picture is not in it... Are you sure you have the right month & year? Could it be 1959? Might make more sense with the unfluted cylinder...

Oh-oh! I cannot recall where I found that image. Some where "on line" IIRC.

Aug. '58 cover mentions "Next Year's Guns" as does the Aug. '59 Cover
