Good gun for the cartridge. It can handle just about anything you want to shoot out of it. They shoot well and have decent triggers. I would rather have a GP-100 for greater versatility but it's still a good gun.

I have one that's blued. It's 30 years old and still rock solid. Shoot better with it than my DAs, though that's likely because I've had it most of my natural born life. Only thing I'd like to change is having it fitted for a 9mm cylinder. It's never been my carry piece and I don't shoot it nearly as much as others, but I still can't bring myself to send it off to Ruger. Too much sentimental value I guess. If you get one, might as well get a convertible. Even if 9mm accuracy isn't stellar, it's still a nice option to have.

I've got an Old Model Flat Top 357 Blackhawk, a New Model Blackhawk 45 Colt/45ACP Convertible, and a New Model Super Blackhawk 44 Magnum.
They are excellent revolvers. Not really designed for concealed carry weapons, but are excellent field guns. What John Taffin calls "Perfect Packin' Pistols."
I love mine, but I'm old school.

I have one from the 80s also, have shot thousands of rounds through and like a Timex it keeps on ticking

Totally agree.

I'm not a good enough shot to notice that the 9mm is technically not as accurate, though. Certainly as far as use on two legged critters, it is of no consequence.

Excellent gun, built like a tank. If I could only have one 357 revolver this would be my first choice .

I have a .357 mag one in blue. Great gun, surprisingly accurate with the 6 inch barrel. With its size and weight I can shoot .38 special all day without the recoil fatigue caused by a couple of boxes out of my 2 inch or 4 inch small frame .38s.
