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

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
