Ruger Super Blackhawk Variations

I am in the market for a .44 mag and have settled on the Super Blackhawk.However, the only specimen I have been able to locate locally is the 7.5 inch.I really like the feel of it,balance is perfect,grip fits my hands well.I am curious about the 4.62 and 5.5 inch version though.I understand the grip frame is slightly larger on the 7.5 inch.So I would like to see a side by side comparison pic if anyone out there has both versions.
This gun will be mainly for woods carry,hunting and range use.Just can't decide on the best barrel length...

All modern .44 Magnum Super Blackhawks have the same frame, but not the grip frame. I highly recommend the 5 1/2" fluted cylinder model for a shooter. The 4 5/8" would be my second choice due to the unfluted cylinder and if I had a 7 1/2" I'd rebarrel it or cut it. I can't shoot the Dargoon grip models without discomfort but the regular round back trigger guard models are very nice.

If you are shopping for grips and the guy at the gun show is out of smooth and offers checkered for the same price, pass. Full house magnums in synthetic ivory checkered grips are not very comfortable.

3rdgen, go to Gunblast.com. You'll have to use their search function, but buried in their archive is a really good article by a Ruger collector about the various single-action grip frames. It includes a drawing of all the shapes laid over each other, and may help you out.
