When you get a chance to hit the range let us know how the ACP and Colt rounds shoot out of your new ,45.
Thats my grail Alaska gun there!
Invested in precious metal, huh?
Congrats and well done.
I haven’t seen one on a store shelf / display since 2018.
This is just sound fiscal decision making at this point.
It says Model 5032 on the box and SN is 2018.
I am pretty sure Ruger phased out that model number a couple of years ago. For a time they had 5032 and 5050 listed at the same time.
The only difference that I could see between them was the 5032 had light colored (almost reddish) wood grips and the front sight had the orange insert. The 5050 has darker grips and a black ramped front sight.
Regardless, you have a nice revolver. Congratulations.
Top is .44 Mag...I consider it less a revolver and more of a concealable mortar...It's satisfying to hear the gong ring once or twice per cylinder at 50 and VERY satisfying at 100 yards.
The bottom Redhawk is in .45 Colt only...Both guns primarily see hot and heavy loads...I don't shoot them often but when I do its ear-to-ear grinning time...I believe I bought them in the first six month of the Trump administration...Just showed up out of the blue one day...Was looking for the .45 Colt for almost 3 years.
I got my first 44 magnum in 1974. Love em all.
That is a really nice revolver, congratulations.

I just have to say that I genuinely appreciate that honest wear. My buddy recently bought an AR, and paid about $1500 to get it "battle worn".
Now that is a great investment! Love the look!
