While in gunsmithing school I took my 9 1/2" 454 casull super redhawk and decided to make it into a camp gun. Make it more weildable than it was, and more controllable than the alaskan. I also bead blasted and did a trigger job that got the DA trigger pull down to 8 1/2 lbs.
I don't know about the .454Casull but mine is sweet to shoot in .44Mag due to the heavier weight of the SR frame.
In my gun's case the work was done by a local smith to order for a guy that originally used it for wilderness carry in the far north. He decided to go with something more powerful and sold off this .44Mag gun.

I took her out for the first time today. I must say it's not any less controllable than the 9 1/2" barrel but does have quite the muzzle flash even in daylight.
