When we first started building our 5 shot revolvers
in 1991 the first one was the African Hunter. Our
first model of this was in 475 Linebaugh. Now you
can have it in the caliber of your choice. Other
than that we haven't changed much else and it is
still one of our most popular hunting revolvers
The African Hunter is built on your Ruger Blackhawk®, Super Blackhawk® or Bisley®. It can be built in satin stainless, satin black or our extremely popular two toned finish. It can also be built with a muzzle brake or ported if you like (for an additional charge). The African Hunter is chambered in the caliber of your choice, such as 356 GNR, 41 GNR, 410 GNR, 429 GNR, 44 Magnum, 45 Long Colt, 454 Casull, 455 GNR, 475 Linebaugh, 500 GNR, 500 Linebaugh or 510 GNR. It also comes with the barrel length of your choice and comes engraved with scenes of African animals on the cylinder and barrel. Your name can also be engraved on the gun at no extra charge.
Each African Hunter is fitted with our own oversized 5 shot cylinder, extra beefy barrel, our popular bisley style Gunfighter Grip with bisley hammer and trigger or our Magnum gripframe. The Bisley hammer and trigger are often not available from Ruger and other hammers and triggers may have to be substituted. The grips are your choice of laminated cherry, exotic wood, ivory Corian or black micarta. Mongolian stag is also available at a slight premium. Each gun comes with our Maxi Throat, Deep Dish crown and interchangeable blade sight system for more accuracy potential. Each gun has a full super slick action job and comes sighted in ready to go.
