    Need a little help hear guys.I'm thinking of selling my Ruger .480 SuperRedHawk.What do you think its worth?I absolutely love this gun but I'm needing a smaller hand gun for personal defense and this ones a little to large. :p

    I just need to know what would be afair price to ask for it.

    Its a used Ruger .480 in very good condition.This thing is huge!! Has a 9 1/2 barrel and Nikon 2.5-8x28 Monarch UCC Handgun Scope mounted on it.


    Heres a link to the specs on the gun. http://www.ruger-firearms.com/Firearms/FAProdSpecsView?model=5510

    Heres a link to the specs of the scope. http://www.swfa.com/pc-1928--1-nikon-25-8x28-monarch-ucc-handgun-scope.aspx

    Heres a pic I took awhile ago but the gun still looks the same.The dollar is to give an idea of the size of the pistol.

    if it's clean 500$-600$ wouldn't be a stretch.

    Awwww, you don't need a smaller gun! You'd be amazed what you can conceal if you really want to! :D

    Eh.. that seems a little low, assuming that scope is included. I'd say more like $800 would still be a pretty good price with the scope.

    The revolver and the scope Retail out for $1,150 so $500/$600 is too low. I would agree that $800 is a fair asking price but I wouldn't go any lower than $750 for a final price.

    Unless you really need the money to finance your next purchase I would keep your Super Redhawk. Since you obviously like Ruger you might want to buy a 2.25" barrel Ruger SP101 in .357 Magnum with a Spurless Hammer. http://www.ruger-firearms.com/Firearms/FAProdView?model=5720&return=Y
    They can be found for just over $400 even though they Retail for $550.

    If that's too small for your liking maybe a 3" GP100 would be what you are looking for. It's too big and heavy for me to carry but some people like it. http://www.ruger-firearms.com/Firearms/FAProdView?model=1715&return=Y

    If you want really small and light you might like a S&W J frame Airweight (not an AirLite) or a used K frame Snub Nose revolver.

    Good luck finding something you will like to carry...
