    A gentleman recently posted this Blackhawk (And darth vaders revolver apperently :ugeek: ) on a Norwegian Gun sales website:

    He claims it is in .44 special (not magnum) and part of a special order.
    Any info on this? Is it a run and buy revolver?

    Yep, it was an exclusive Lipsey's Distributor Special. There were about 2,000 made with a mixture of 4-5/8"" and 5-1/2"" barrel lengths. They are made on the smaller 50th Ann. .357 Flattop frames. Ruger has included them in their 2010 Catalog as a cataloged item.

    Hmmm... should be a fun shooter. I like the slightly smaler .357 frame and I also have around a thosand .44 special empties lying around. But does it have any particular collectors value?

    I doubt that it has very much collectors value with 2,000 being made and more to come. Maybe in 20 or 30 years depending on how many actually end up being made. But as you say, a fun shooter for sure, I love the .44 Special cartridge!
