New to me, Ruger .44 Magnum Redhawk

Found this 1995 model in a local pawn shop at a decent price. 5.5 inch barrel, Hogue grips. I want to replace the sights with MepPro Tritium sights. I have a Galco belt holster for it. I am going to tote this one along on night time hog hunts in the swamp.

Good for you!
I saw one at a pawn shop near me. I almost bought it, but ammo is a problem. Also, at around $900 out the door, it was a bit pricey for me. Still, cheaper than the M29 Smith right next to it at $1199!

Awesome, ive been on the lookout for a RH in .41 mag for a few years now. Kinda hard to come by, and currently if you do find one its just stupid money (at least on Gunstroker). Im patient ill find one someday..

Very nice sir!! I also have a 95’ build with the 7.5” barrel. I would have really liked to find a blued one. Great find you have there.

I had a blue 7 1/2" in the '80s but liked the balance of your 5 1/2" much better.
