FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Ruger Redhawk is a double-action/single-action, 6-shot revolver, available chambered in .357 Magnum, .41 Magnum, .44 Magnum, .45 Colt and .45 ACP, made by Sturm, Ruger & Co. in the United States.
It was first introduced in 1979 and is designed to handle extra stress and high-power or magnum loads, making it very popular among hand-loaders, and also as a bear defense gun for hunters.
The Redhawk is a scaled-up and improved version of the Ruger Security-Six with a square butt grip, adjustable sights, and 5.5″ and 7.5″ barrel lengths.
To help it handle long-term use of magnum loads, it includes a latch at the crane to firmly lock the cylinder at front and rear, similar to that of the S&W Triple Lock design.
In addition, the cylinder is longer than most competitors’, allowing ammunition to be loaded to a longer overall length.
The Redhawk is available in blued or stainless steel finish.
Despite plans to drop the line with the introduction of the Ruger Super Redhawk, the Redhawk remains in production today, and many shooters prefer the more classic lines of the Redhawk, especially those who do not plan to use a scope.
It remains one of the most popular and successful big bore revolvers, especially chambered in .44 Magnum.
This gun is in good to very good, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The stainless steel finish has only very few, extremely light scratches in places, which can be easily polished out.
The original wooden grips are still very good with very few, very light dings/scratches in places.
The cylinder lockup is excellent, possibly the tightest I have ever felt on a revolver.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but with it’s large bore and 6″ barrel, is best suited for hunting or target shooting like metallic silhouette.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:
- METALLIC SILHOUETTE
- SADPA MPDS – Revolver division (REV)
- ICORE – Classic division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Stock revolver
- STEEL CHALLENGE
