Perfect. I too prefer a 5.5” barrel and am not a fan of the dragoon style trigger guard. Very nicely done.
Yep, those dragoon trigger gaurd will knock hide off your knuckle with heavy loads, and the 7.5" is just too cumbersome for the woods. I never understood why 7.5 was that factory "standard".
Next project is this 63 44 mag flat top. Gonna keep it simple, cut to 4-5/8 and factory style refinish.

I have a Hamilton Bowen Super Blackhawk that has been cut to 4". The short barrel plus the Dragoon trigger guard make it less than pleasant to shoot, so I handload a load specifically for that gun that has 1 grain less powder than my regular 44Mag load.
