    Are Ruger Blackhawk and Super Blackhawk barrels interchangable? Anyone have a source for a used barrel? I'd like to change a blued bisley from 7 1/2 to 5 1/2 or 4 5/8.

    Alternately, if someone could recommend a smith in Washington who could shorten and crown the barrel and move the sight, that would be great.

    This is a little off the topic of your post - but Ruger will re-barrel their pistols for a reasonable fee. I had a few done back in the 90's and I think it was only $100 or so per pistol. It would be worth it to call them and ask (?) at least you would have a price that you could compare to.

    I didn't call about interchangability but to rebarrel, with shipping, ends up being about $335. Too much for me to swing.
