According to your serial number you Ruger was made in 1972. This makes you BlackHawk what is referred to as an "old model". This model was a pre-transfer bar type. Here are you values below.

New in Box--$700

Exc. Cond.--$500

Very Good---$350




I hope this helps. Have a great day!!!

I think I may have given you an incomplete SN # XXXXX is the exact #; is it the same?
Expert:  Jon replied 5 years ago.
That would make it a 1969 production, but the prices will be the same.
