    Hi all,

    A Ruger Redhawk 7 1/2" with a Burris 2X scope came in used at the range I belong to about a week and a half ago. I saw it in the case the Sunday before last, and it looked cherry, but I thought the better of it as I had picked up a GP-100 3" and a Browning Buck Mark the day before. Last Saturday, I had them take it out of the case to get a better look at it, and they said the owner had 50 rounds through it before he let it sit in a safe. It really nagged me until today, so I picked it up for $500.

    I don't think I've ever seen a factory cylinder gap like this. With the trigger back and the hammer dropped, I had to really look to get a glimpse through the gap. I doubt you could get a piece of paper in there. No wiggle. I couldn't resist.

    Did I get a good deal? Seems to me the price was right for the gun and rings alone, and with the scope that seems to price out around $170, I do believe I stole this package.

    Thanks for looking.

    44 Mag Redhawks are one of the best bargains going in my opinion...and you got a USA built Burris in the deal too. Great pick up!

    Can't go wrong

    Yup. That's a fair price for great rig. That's one of my " ...if you were stuck on an island and you could only have one gun..." choices.

    That is a nice pickup with the scope. I would be happy with that. I have two redhawks and love them.
