    The Ruger Redhawk is a revolver that is not not made in 9mm. Whether or not one would shoot blanks in one is up to whomever.

    Your post makes no sense at all I'm afraid.

    The Redhawk is a revolver and comes in 44 Mag and 45 Colt.

    Nope. Sorry. Don't know anything about it. Can't help you I'm afraid.

    But welcome to the forum, anyway. :)

    I assume you are talking about a Umarex 225-2708 Blank, Ruger RedHawk S 9mm? That revolver is not actually a Ruger Redhawk revolver.

    Ruger does not chamber the Redhawk in 9mm as far as I am aware of. I have no clue what your reference to "automatic" is all about as the Redhawk is a revolver and there are no automatic revolvers. Automatic implies fully automatic as in a machine gun. There are plenty of Ruger made semi automatic pistols chambered in 9mm but no revolvers.

    What exactly are you getting at?

    Gota find a new drug . What your on does not work well. Ruger did produce a 9mm revolvers but not a large frame and they make semi-autos but no mixs of both.

    I suppose somebody could get a rare .357 mag Redhawk and have a custom 9mm cylinder made for it. That would make one heavy banana-hammock dragging, post-six shot billy club.

    Wasn't it a version of the speed-six w/ spring clips instead of a regular extractor star? IIRC, it did have a .355 barrel. Late 70's or very early 80's?

    Strictly a collector piece today.

    You could have a .357 Redhawk cut for moon clips, have some custom moon clips made and have a 9mm Redhawk. Which sounds like a wonderful idea. :rolleyes:

    Ruger did make a 9MM revolver. I do not remember which one. Speed Six or Security Six maybe, but not the Redhawk.

    They exist and aren't really strictly collectors pieces. You see them come up on gun classifieds and under the LGS counter from time to time. There is a bit of a premium on them, but not too bad. If you can find one, you should be able to buy it for $500-700, the .357s and .38s typically go for $300-$500. I'm sure some have sold for more, but I don't think that is typical.

    Yes, but why would you want to downgrade like that?

    Can't the hotrodding ++p++ 9mm guys make it seem equivalent to any known pistol round?

    You know, then they start posts like "9mm vs. .454 Casull, Which is Better for Silesian Boars?" Followed by some guy that quotes an internet source claiming a 9mm powered by special sauce powder achieved low earth orbit.

    I could become one of those guys, interjecting comments about my 9mm Redhawk into every post, with things like "are six shots of 9mm enough" and "SAS should start a post-Wild Bunch 9mm revolver division", until the internet vomits me out in disgust.

    Good times.

    Never heard of a 9 mm Redhawk and I remember when the 44 mag Redhawk first came out. Calibers for the Redhawk were 357,41 and 44 mag and 45 Colt. As some one said maybe someone had a cylinder made to switch out on the 357 but I can't imagine why someone would go thru with what would have been a very expensive undertaking.

    Ruger made auxillary cylinders chambered in 9mm for the Ruger .357 Blackhawk.

    There's one for sale at my LGD.

    I would cry if my little sister adapted her .357 Redhawk to 9mm.

    Mostly because I keep secretly wishing at the bottom of my black heart that she encounters some difficulty in life that requires her to sell it to me. ;)
