My new Ruger Redhawk .44 Mag

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a .44 Magnum Ruger Redhawk revolver. I’ve been wanting one of these for a few years, but I’ve been patient about it. This one was offered to me a few weeks ago as part of a trade, and, and, even though I was looking for one with a shorter barrel, the whole deal was so good that I couldn’t say no.

I’m the third owner of this gun, but the first one to ever fire it, which is pretty neat. As it turns out, it is a sweet shooting revolver.

Here’s a video of my first range session with the Redhawk.

As the owner of a 4" model who also bought it because a deal turned up, I'd like to extend my congratulations on a fine revolver. I am besotted with mine, and it sounds like you're heading that way too!!

Enjoy!

The Redhawk is one awesome revolver. A lot of power there, and some pretty good shootin ..

Best part is they are built like a tank.

I semi-mindlessly bought a .44 Ruger Alaskan a few years ago for anticipated travel in big bear country. Then, angsting over the poorish muzzle velocity promised by its snubby barrel, I sold the thing a few months back without firing it once. I think a 5.5" Redhawk will fill the requirement I had envisioned for the Alaskan, and more handsomely, too. Congratulations on yours.

Really well done video. Thanks for sharing it. Such fun.

My latest Redhawk is 5.5" .45 Colt, but I haven't shot it yet. I have a 4.25", .45 Colt also.
