Sight unseen. I bought it from a friend who has a shop. He took it in cheap and passed the savings on to me. It's a new model blackhawk in 357. The price was so good I trust him on his grading of 80% out side mint barrel and working condition. It has some scuffs but nothing I can either fix or live with. This is my first new model is there anything I should know? I rarely buy sight unseen, and he said when I pick it up if I don't like it I can walk so not to worried. He said the trigger has a great crisp snap to it. Better then his colt so I am pretty sure it has a good trigger, as I said we are friends before bussiness I buy a lot from him as I have know him my entire life. So what can you guys say about the new models? Good or bad what to look for? As for price it was under $300. Now I have 2 pistols in 357 for cowboy action. Now all I need is to find a good deal on a shotgun.

For cowboy shooting, the shotgun you gotta have is a Winchester '97. Nothing like pumpgun with an exposed hammer. :bow:

I like the look of the 97 and they are not very exspensive. Seems like a fun one.
