Default Ruger .44 Mag?

I would like a pistol/rifle combo... What would be a good companion pistol for my Ruger .44 Mag carbine??
The only requirements I have are its a Ruger, double action, in .44 Mag. I would like it to be of the same era (60's-70's) but open to "newer" models... So, whacha suggest??

I sure do like the Super Redhawks with the grey-stainless finish. If you want something a bit more classic, there's always the original Redhawk.

Blackhawks and Vaqueros are SA, of course.

Grey-Stainless SRH:

Sounds like you already have it narrowed down pretty good, just how many different DA .44 mags did Ruger make?

I dont know, thats why I asked...
I didnt even know about the Sp series until joining the forum and seen Winds... I dont keep up with all this new fangdangle-ness...

Whats the difference between a Super Redhawk and a "normal" one?

The Super has a hammer forged barrel, extended frame and cushioned grips.

If you have an old Ruger Deerstalker carbine and are looking for a contemporary .44 mag double action revo, the only one from the ‘60s or 70’s is the S&W Model 29. The stainless 629 and the Ruger Redhawk came along in 1980. The Super Redhawk came along about 1985 or ’86. Those are the double actions. If you wanted a single action, the .44 Blackhawk and Super Blackhawk came along in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s. If you aren’t hard over on dates, you can pick from the Redhawk and Super Redhawk. Both are good. The Redhawk is available with a 4”, 5 ½” and 7 ½” barrel. The Super Redhawk is available with a 7 ½” and 9 ½” barrel.
