Klondike Gold Rush 125th Anniversary

Klondike Gold Rush


“Gold! Gold in the Klondike!” would become the cry that enticed thousands to head North. After its initial discovery in 1896, gold seekers boarded ships in Seattle and headed North in hopes of striking it rich. The treacherous 600-mile trek to the goldfields required many supplies and a heavy dose of Gold Fever. Though a few found some gold, most ended up broke and were already headed home in 1898.

The legacy of the thousands, who endured some of the harshest environments in hopes of a better life, is as tried and true as the American dream. To honor this history, we are proud to present this limited edition Ruger Super Blackhawk. Etched into steel are the elements that many braved on this journey. Celebrate and carry on this rich history with this heirloom firearm.

Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 Mag

This is an American made, single action revolver chambered in the 44 Rem Mag caliber.  The barrel is 7.5″ long and comes with hardwood grips.  The cylinder is unfluted giving it a smooth, round shape.  Ruger’s quality steel makes this the ideal firearm to plate and engrave on.  

Limited to Only 50 Revolvers to be Made

By keeping the edition size small, the focus is to produce an heirloom that is rare and unique.  50 was chosen to represent all of the states in the Union.  This is a great addition to your collection since the revolver will be a rare find and very eye catching. 

Spirit of the American Dream

The Klondike revolver represents the heart and soul of the American dream.  The bravery of those who risked it all for a chance at a better life.  The history and achievements of the Klondike Gold Rush will live on forever and this revolver makes the legend tangible. 

24 Karat Gold Plating

The only way to represent the Gold Rush is to utilize real gold.  The engravings utilize 24 Karat Gold to showcase the history and icons of the Klondike.  The trigger, hammer, pins and screws are entirely plated in Gold.  From the muzzle to the bottom of the backstrap, Gold captures the legacy of its Klondike discovery.
