    Hi, folks, this is my first post here. (Can't believe I hadn't found out about the site or RCA years ago)

    I picked up an older (shipped May '68) Blackhawk 357 a couple days ago. It was in its original box with papers, looks unfired, and has a plastic bag containing a shortie cleaning rod with brush and swab plus a small blade screwdriver. Question is: were these little cleaning kits included in the box back then??

    Thanks,
    Dennis in Ft Worth

    Hi Dennis,

    Welcome to the RCA site! Sounds like you found a nice Blackhawk. Ruger did not include a cleaning kit with their guns. Sounds like you may have a S&W, other gun manufactuer or an after market kit.

    Hope that you join the Ruger Collectors Association and help support and enjoy our hobbie.....these are great guns!! Hit the [i]Join the RCA [/i]button and you can print a membership application on-line.

    Thanks, Bill--
    I bought a NIB Blackhawk and SBH back in the early-early '70s (still have the SBH) and don't recall getting such a thing with them.

    (Already downloaded the application....)

    Thanks again
    Dennis

    Dennis. I will second the opinion of Mr. .44 Flat Top. I have never seen a cleaning kit offered by Ruger in their catalogs, owners' manuals, advertisements or accessories listing. I agree with Bill, S & W had some of the items you describe and I do not believe they are marked with the company logo? Their tiny screw drivers make handy rear sight screw screw turners. Further, I do not think that Ruger could have offered one length cleaning rod to accomodate all their barrel lengths.
