Don't forget experience.. most of the sbh have what is referred  to as plow handle . Some have a bisley grip . Most of the 44 mags have a plow handle with a squared off trigger guard . That trigger guard has ground more meat off fingers than a lem meat grinder. 20200802_120548_001.thumb.jpg.282b85669a6f0ff1066ff434887e0b70.jpg

this is a bisley sbh in 45lc. Note the rounded  trigger guard .20200807_140903.thumb.jpg.a2360d1beb1c2e2f1dabc27c87360bf6.jpg

This one is a sbh 44 mag. Note it has the squared off trigger guard.  Until recently sbh were only made on the plowhandle grip frame with the cheese grader trigger guard . Dont confuse a standard black hawk with a  standard  sbh then there's the sbh hunter.IMG_20130320_060123-1.jpg.fea0830fd0af68c0553c3fcdda752fed.jpg

I almost quit revolvers back when I started handguns because of the cheese grader.

I have a few Ruger handguns and rifles , but not a SuperBlackhawk (wish I did). I don't think you can go wrong with anything made by Ruger imo.

I had the 44mag super redhawk and had to sell it a few years ago. I loved the gun.  My kids always mess with my wife by saying hey dad will you ever get another hand cannon lol.

I couldn’t have said it better.. I have large hands and when I handled a SBH that flat trigger guard was right into my finger, I knew right then nope.

My uncle used to hunt with a Super Red Hawk in .44mag. Nice gun, and he killed many deer with it. I always preferred my S&W 29 in 44mag though.

.44 mag. Bought a Kenai chest rig I love. Shot a lot at 50 yards over the years shooting iron sights. It’s a cupcake in recoil as pushes instead of flips like my plastic handguns. Killed a deer with daughter sitting next to me at 63 yards first year. Bang drop with right load. Born in 1978 she is 403463c069c5edde35dfb5211cd43ef4.jpg

I have shot a  few smiths ... I personally  don't like the grips  they are  known for their fit and finish and the few I have shot were  fun .  That said ... op asked about  the sbh.... single action .  Rugers are built rugged you can shoot them from popcorn fart loads to fire breathing .. t rex crushing loads . There are  special sections in reloading manuals  called ruger only loads ....

I have a super redhawk  that I will be buried with chambered in 480 ruger. 

I had been toying with getting a s&w custom  shop 460.

I’ve handled a smith 460 & 500, they are a nice revolver but their just too big to be practical. One might as well carry a rifle their so large. My SRH has the 9.5 inch barrel and the smiths are too  cumbersome to me.

NYhunter  notice the grip, if your dead set on a SBH this is the type of grip to install as it moves your finger down from behind the trigger guard.Hogue and Pachmayr both make rubber grips for it.

I have not shot the smiths, I handled them shortly after they came out but that was it. And do I want to shoot a 480 ? does a fat kid love cake. Now that would be a fun range day a bunch of us pistol guys bring our favorite iron down to let all shoo em. . Hell I haven’t shot my new 10 mm yet as the range has been closed per king Cuomo’ s rona madness. And honestly I would rather have a BFR in the larger calibers if I was going to go larger than my 44.

I keep checking Corning fish and game clubs sight and it says its still closed, they’ve sent me 2 emails  about chicken bbq’s but  no open shooting. 
You know we know a couple fellows almost neighbors of mine with some land that I wonder  if we could talk them into a range day . Pigmy cough , Steuben jerry cough cough...
