    I have a wonderful 5.5 Redhawk 44 magnum that is blued and manf in 1990. I love this weapon. It handles everything I load for it. Accurate , reliable and beautiful looking. Any Redhawk owners agree?

    Vintage blued Rugers looked way better than the newer offerings such as the GP and SP, and thats a beauty!

    Im fond of mine, vintage stainless .357, 7.5"-

    A Redhawk has been number two or three on my "to buy," list for a long time now. I keep never getting around to it, though, as something else keeps creeping in at #1.

    Those 6 shot 357 Redhawks are impressive 357 platforms! The term "tank" gets thrown around alot, that model is deserving.

    I love my redhawk, about the same vintage as yours but SS and 7.5". My 14yr old daughter has claimed it as hers, so I am thinking about a 5.5 as well. Wish I could find one blued like yours when I had money handy...

    Love the redhawks! My first 44 mag and my first 4473 pistol was my 5.5 stainless followed by a blued hunter- great shooters!

    Nice! Don't see too many blued ones! My brother had a stainless model with a 5 1/2" when he lived in Alaska and it had a great feel and balance to it with that barrel length.

    Nightlord40k,
    Clearly we are gentlemen of similar refined taste. :D I have the same model and love the thing. I traded a little cash and a manual typewriter for it. (Yes, the typewriter was a Remington.) If there were atomic powdered 357 cartridges this thing could probably handle them. The joke is it is superbly accurate with 38 special WC loads.
