Newbie seeking advice
I have an opportunity to purchase a Ruger wheel gun (not sure if it a redhawk or blackhawk at the moment) in 44 mag SS. I have seen it and it looks like its never been shot. I know the person who owns it and he takes care of everything. I was wondering if the $300 he wants for it is a good price, a ripoff, or a steal. Thanks in advanced for everything.

There is a world of difference between a Blackhawk and a Redhawk. The Blackhawk is single action, the Redhawk is double action. $300. sounds about right for a used Blackhawk. If it's a Super Blackhawk, it's an even better price. If it's a Redhawk, it's an outright steal.

So, if it's in excellent condition, the price ranges from fair to possibly outstanding.

Head over to the New Member introductions area and introduce yourself to the folks. ;)

Non-Super Blackhawk is not available in 44 mag, or at least not currently. The Redhawk (DA) and Super Blackhawk (SA) are the two Ruger .44's. Either way you're getting a phenomenal deal, so if the gun, whichever model it actually is, appeals to you, jump on it.

Well I did find out that it is a DA. What I don't know is if it is a redhawk or a super redhawk. Beautiful firearm, I was thinking of doing some hunting with it this next hunting season. thanks again.

There is a HUGE difference in these Revolvers!

Either one is a BARGAIN at $300.00!

I have a Super Redhawk and a Redhawk, and both are deadly accurate especially with a scope.

It's a Ruger, what's not to like for $300???

And a few of my "other" Ruger 44's...

Ruger's are just hard to beat for the buck.

Never apologize for gun porn, mate!

To the OP, $300 is a great price for a .44 mag Ruger, whatever the model, in the condition you describe. Can you get some pics?

Your buddy doesn't have any extra .357's he doesn't want anymore, does he? :D Sounds like a good friend.
