Next 41 Mag?


January 4, 2013, 05:27 PM
I have a 6 1/2 Bhk, A 6 in 657 classic hunter, and recently got a no dash 6 in 57 in nickel. I want them all, but for my next, would you suggest a Redhawk or Ragin Bull in 41. I realize both are discontinued in 41, and a RH will run around 800 and a Bull around 600 if I can find either. I hit gun shows whenever I can, but I was wondering what your opinions are if I find both. What one should I get?

Might as well go all the way and get .44 Magnum.

I am very happy with my Redhawk in .41 mag. I have no experience with the Taurus.

go all the way and get .44 Magnum. Afterwards?

I have a 44 redhawk and SBH... just really want more 41's.

Between your two choices I would go for the Redhawk. Personally I would be looking for a S&W 657 performance center with the short barrel to really round out barrel lengths. Have fun searchin!

I like hunting with my 41s, so I was hoping for an 8 3/8 bull, but I'd take either the 5 1/2 or 7 1/2 RH.

Redhawk! I have a Bisley, a 4-5/8 Blackhawk and a Super 14 barrel in .41 and am looking for another in an Old Model and/or Redhawk, whichever comes first-

I would buy the Redhawk.

No Ragin Bull fans? I know 4 of my friends have/had Bulls and they all loved them. One even has a 6 in 41 bull, but won't part with it. I have a Redhawk in 44, exctremely accurate, and love all my Rugers, but just thought if I could find a Bull in 41, I'd take it.

I would definitely choose the Ruger Redhawk. I have a blue 5.5" that is turned but unfired that dates 1985. I prefer my M57's. If you were in TN, I'd sell it to you and I know you'd like it.

I wish I lived in TN also! I'd love to buy your RH! Just for giggles, how much would you ask for it ?

I would be comfortable with the price you mentioned above plus any fees. It has only been dry fired a couple times. Box and papers all original.

If you want to continue this conversation, PM me.

Look for a S&W 58.

22 rimfire... Christmas, taxes, and the purchase of the 57 have me broke, but I'll definately keep it in mind...seriously. Also... I have yet to even see a model 58 and I'm not so interested in the new 58 classic.

About what I expected. Not in any hurry to sell.

Get a 7.5 in. Bisley in .41 It will become your favorite gun. Of the two guns you mentioned, definitely the Redhawk. No comparison. The Redhawk is built like a Freightliner. It can take more abuse than you can. Trust me.
