Will also consider 6.5" 454.

Blue or stainless.

Does not need to be NIB...this will be a shooter. Just not interested with a specimen with a lot of rounds (say over 500). Only interested in adjustable sights.

Let me know what you got!

Maybe @TOBY458 has another one squirreled away under his bed?

No sir! I'm all out of revolvers.

I wish Ruger had made other bbl lengths for the blue mode Bisley besides 7.5". First one I got years ago I had a local smith lop 2" off of it, then predictably I sold it and been pining for it ever since!
They did 5.5 in SS and had one of those too. Only now just have a std 7.5 blue Bisley .45 Colt, a fairly recent purchase.
There was a special run a couple of years ago blue 5.5" with Turnbull colored frame, but those are hard to come by now, wishing I had bought one when they were under a grand. Tough find now.

Yes, the Turnbull is really nice and I am watching for one....

Now you get to try and find ammo for them! Ha! Ha! Ha!
I have brass and dies on the way for the Linebaugh.

I have an ACP cylinder for the Ruger, and 4K rounds of ammo. I do need to find some 45 Colt brass. I have a couple thousand bullets to get me started.

No worries for either of them!
I know. When Tarbe showed us his gun room with all the reloading stuff and ammo, I thought it was a throwback to the days of yore in a Cabelas, Sportsman’s Warehouse or somewhere else. He, like many others, planned ahead and are now reaping the benefits of having a variety of stuff on hand.

Just be glad he hasn’t posted a picture of himself in the bathtub full of primers

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
