My father, brother and I all have old model Flattops and they are great guns. I've carried mine as a sidearm for big game hunting for years. Once you get used to them they are deadly accurate and super reliable. Whatever you do don't tap it, you will ruin the value. I can't remember the exact number of flattops made but it is something like 29,000 for the old beast. Enjoy. After you get used to it you'll be able to shoot it great. I shoot mine sillouhette style with one hand and can do pretty well. Shooting Weaver stance is just a bonus. Good Luck. P.S. There is a guy on Ebay that sells old blackhawk parts that are original. I think he's from South Carolina or something like that.TyP.S.S Hold it tight but let it rock back in your hand. They are made to rock in your hand a little when you shoot them. They're definitely not a 9mm so give with them a little bit and you'll have better luck.
