Now that is a seriously good looking gun !

I'd do it total black, like the S&W Night Guards, and (bonus) I wouldn't have to remove any lock.

Well I know where my Christmas money is going this holiday season.



PS: You think Ruger would offer it in black.

me too, and my plan is to have it coated with teflon and buy the grips. although i may short cut it and just duracoat it matte black for now and eventually send it out for the teflon coating.

Ok, so i bought the srha 44 today. Thing feels great in my hand, although didnt take her home yet. At any rate since this is my first revolver is there supposed to be any play at all when the hammer is cocked. There is a minute amount of play but the shop said thats normal. Just curious thanks.

A bit of side to side play is normal with everything but Colts.
Congrats!

Did you say list.... next is a remy 870, xd9 5", ruger lcr357, taurus raging judge, 2nd AR for some 3 gun type work, ruger m77 hawkeye .375, marlin 1895gbl in 45-70, ruger gp100 3", Arsenal ak47,3rd 10/22, and more. I have to limit myself to no more than 2 per year. Ive gone far beyond that in 2012.

There is some backward movement of the hammer when I apply pressure to it. It is nothing new and seems to be part of the design.

tomr,

I should have clarified better, my question was when the hammer is cocked the cylinder has a slight amount of side to side movement.

Very cool man thanks. And by play in the cylinder i mean i can rotate the cylinder back and forth ever so slightly; like a hairs width in either direction.

bmfgsxr,

I don't think you have anything to worry about. If I may suggest you might want to read through the revolver checkout guid.

bmf,

There is slight play rotationally and forward and back. I believe this is nothing to worry about.
