I ordered a Blackhawk 357 convertible with additional 9mm cylinder.Blued, 6 1/2" barrel.
Price was 390.00 before tax. Good deal, no deal, or average??

My other question is this, I would assume the diameter of the 357/38 bullet is the same as 9mm? Thus using the same barrel. Please expand on this issue.

The 357 uses .357 diameter bullets where the 9MM uses .355 diameter.
I have an older Speer manual that lists 110-125 gr. .357 bullets in 9MM loads, and I have shot hundreds of 110 gr. .357 bullets through a 9MM Ruger auto with good results.
I have not priced a convertable but that price seems reasonable.

I have a similar convertable, it WAS like NIB. I picked it up for 412.50 and it had an extra 357, 9mm and 38 super cylinders. Shoots the 38 and 9mm cylinders well, even though 355 bullets vs 357 bore.
