My new Ruger Redhawk .44 Mag


July 12, 2014, 08:57 AM
A couple of weeks ago I picked up a .44 Magnum Ruger Redhawk revolver. Iíve been wanting one of these for a few years, but Iíve been patient about it. This one was offered to me a few weeks ago as part of a trade, and, and, even though I was looking for one with a shorter barrel, the whole deal was so good that I couldnít say no.

Iím the third owner of this gun, but the first one to ever fire it, which is pretty neat. As it turns out, it is a sweet shooting revolver.

Hereís a video of my first range session with the Redhawk.

Beautiful Ruger Mike, can you resize your picture? It's a bit too big.

Nice looking Redhawk. Really like seeing it with a blued finish.

I thought I was going to see another "white" gun. So I was pleasantly surprised at the blued goodness my eyes beheld. That's a lovely looking new toy.....

Nice gun Mike. I'm looking for one in 4" blued.

Ive had a 5.5 inch for a couple of years now. Not what most people would consider a carry gun, but I love it. With the proper hand loads it is surprisingly accurate and nice to shoot.

Excellent weapon. I have the 5.5 in blued 44. Born on date was 1989. You don't see the blued ones very often. And I think they are super cool looking. I really like the 5.5 size. I love to carry it when I am in the forest. It matches up nicely with my Marlin 1894.
Enjoy your "big bore" handgun. It will serve you well I am sure

Sweet. I do love the big bores.

One thing I did change was the wood grips for a set of nice Uncle Mikes rubber ones. Makes a better look and a whole lot better feel.

I like the wood as far as looks go, but of course we all have our opinions on that.

But I would imagine the rubber grips are indeed much more comfortable to shoot, especially with heavy full powered loads.

Congrats :)

I don't care much for the Super Redhawks, but I sure love me some standard Redhawk. Here's my 5.5". Hope yours gives you as much pleasure as mine has me......

Just chiming back in to say I've enjoyed your You Tubing, keep up the good work.

Nice gun you have there. A little Hoppes and some BreakFree will take that black stuff right off. You really should clean your gun before taking a photo of it. :evil:

I have a Blackhawk in 357, they are great guns.

I see the regular Redhawk is offered on the Ruger website again. Too bad no blued ones like yours though :(
