Ruger Old Army black powder revolver 44 cal Blue 7.5 "" barrel, with target sights. After achieving tremendous success with his fine Single Six, Blackhawk, and Super Blackhawk single action cartridge revolvers, the late Bill Ruger set out to design and produce the finest cap and ball revolver ever made. The result is the Old Army, which is based on the three-screw Blackhawk lockwork and uses the same grip frame. This is a traditional single action revolver with a half cock hammer position, not the Ruger New Model lockwork with the transfer bar ignition system.
According to Ruger, the Old Army features an interlocking base pin and rammer assembly that will not unlatch during recoil. It also makes cylinder removal more trouble than with Ruger single action cartridge revolvers or Remington pattern cap and ball revolvers. The blueing is wearing away on the ball rammer and there is scoring on the cylinder but the pistol is still in very good overall condition.
