Just the other day I picked up a 45 colt redhawk. I finally have at least one example of each caliber the redhawk was ever chambered in in the stable.

Not a major accomplishment really, that would require at least one of each barrel length in blued and stainless, and with and w/o scope rings. That be a whole lotta redhawks.

One completely matched set though:
357, 41, 44, and 45 in 7.5" stainless w/o rings.

At the range it's alot of fun. People go "Oh, 44 today?". They sure go :what: when I tell them that that monster is a 357.

Anyhow, just had to brag a little. I've been after this for about 10 years. Feels good.

Nice Collection Ben- I regularly regret selling the .357 Redhawk I had and am actively looking for a .41 and a .44 in 5.5". Problem is when I find one I like the pocketbook says no. Someday. Enjoy shooting them.

Carpettbaggerr-

I will soon be getting my 357 maximum blackhawk a workover into 475 Linebaugh. Is that close enough for you?

Post pictures please I will try to restrain the controlled drool!

I love the .44 Mag Redhawk that I have in 5.5" SS. Accurate and a hard hitter.

Congratulations on fulfilling your redhawk objectives. I have only one redhawk and it is a 5.5" 41 mag. Just bought it and have not shot it yet. It was NIB.

I have a similar objective with Colt Diamondbacks as far as collecting goes. Sometimes it just feels like a gun accumulation. Actually my objectives are broader than the Diamondback. I want to have one 96%+ sample of every Colt 22 revolver in each variation (model, barrel, rf caliber, finish, etc.). Even with the modest Trooper Mark III, that is 15 individual guns. That is a lot of guns. I'll never fulfill my objectives, but it's fun to think about.
