    Default Ruger? Cylinder ID

    I believe this .45ACP cylinder is for a Ruger, but perhaps someone can tell me for which specific model.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Need dimensions (diameter and length), but looks about right for a Blackhawk. Appers to be for a single action, and in Stainless steel.

    The locking notches look to be correct for a Ruger single action revolver. Ruger single action cylinders are unique in this respect putting the notches offset from the weakest spot.

    Agree with the above 2 posts. Ruger Blackhawk extra cylinder for a 45 Colt convertible.

    Thanks all. Just to be sure, here are the dimensions:

    Diameter: 1.728 in.
    Length breech end to muzzle end: 1.702
    Overall length index star to axle boss: 1.946

    Wish this fit my Uberti. No moon clips required.

    Could also be a New Vaquero cylinder... which might be smaller than the Blackhawk.

    If I had mine, I'd check the measurements. But it is down in Texas, being bead blasted (I hate polished stainless... actually, polished anything). If you don't get an answer by the time it comes back, I'll post the conversion cylinder specifications.

    Thanks. I will be putting it on the trader forum but would like to list it properly.

    All I can say is that it's too long to be a .357 cylinder for a Blackhawk or original large frame Vaquero.

    Holding out for your measurements, Screwball. Thanks.

    Revolver arrived in Texas on 4/10... quoted 3 to 4 weeks, then return shipping. Should be back to me within the first two weeks of May.

    For my Ruger New Vaquero ACP cylinder...

    Diameter: 1.6760"
    Length Breech to Muzzle: 1.6090"
    Overall Length Star to Boss: 1.8335"

    Going to say probably a Blackhawk conversion cylinder.

    And since I got the gun back...
