Best Ruger .44 years?
So these comparisons between the Smith 29 and the Ruger Redhawk got me to thinking. I really want to find and buy a nice, preferably unfired, 29-2. The durability issues got me to think about the Ruger though. In the Redhawk/Super Redhawk line are there better years than others and how does Ruger differentiate slight modifications, if any. I know Smith uses the dash system (29-*). Truth be told I will probably still migrate towards Smith, but I want to weigh everything out. The usage of the gun will be for range work and occasional field/trail companion. It won't be a hunter.
