I just acquired a Ruger New Model Blackhawk .45 Colt at the local crap gun show yesterday.
My question is can I just buy a separate .45acp cylinder and use it in this same firearm?
There is a model of Blackhawk that comes in a .45LC/.45ACP Model which has two cylinders and seems to be identical to mine. Thanks.

That is indeed correct.

Yes it can be done. As already mentioned it will need to be 'timed'......

ETA: Full moon clips will be your friend!!!

ETA again:...Stirke that!!! Blackhawk doesn't have a swing out cylinder so I don't know how the rounds are loaded.........

Yes, I would imagine Ruger can fit a .45ACP cylinder. However, don't expect it to be cheap!

Yea I suspect to expensive to be worth it... as in another firearms cost expensive.

I only gave 300.00 for it. I will see how close to that price it will be. I need another excuse for one more single action anyway.

It would probably be cheaper to simply sell the .45 Colt you have now, and buy a kit gun with both cylinders. I've seen them sell used for around $350-375. I have no idea what fitting a cylinder will cost, but I would guess around $150-200. Good luck!

I have to keep this .45 for the principle of it. I waited a guy out for about 45 min to 1 hour.
I offered him 300. instead of the asking price of 350. that he wanted. I made sure he saw me just enough around the show as to keep me in his mind. After time passed he folded quicker than superman on laundry day. So now you see why I have to keep it.

Spend your money on a power custom cyl. latch and belt mountain "requires fitting" base pin.

You'll be glad you spent the $50.

Where would one aquire this at?

The latch and pin? Brownells.

Fit slowly and you'll get a 100% lockup, good for accuracy and just makes the sixgun feel like a custom gun.
