I have had a blackhawk in .41 mag for years(6.5" barrel) and just bought a redhawk in .41 and can honestly say they will work just as well as a .44 without as much recoil. I carry my redhawk like most people do a .357. If I have need for more power,I pack my .454 like most do their .44s.

Default New Rugert 41 user

Just bought my first .41 today Paid $399 for it, don't know if that is too much, but I like the feel and the pearl handles. Haven't had a chance to fire it yet. The range I use doesn't allow magnums. Will have to find some where else to shot it. I looked up the serial # and found it was produced in 1965-66. Can anyone
suggest a good brand and grain ammo
thanks

There's nothing wrong with a 41 mag except you're limited to very little in choices of ammo.
I had and still kicking myself for getting rid of it a Ruger Redhawk 7 1/2" bbl S/S in 41 mag.

Seeing these prices and assumeing they are New Models I don`t feel to bad about paying $ 400 for a 3 Screw in 90 to 95% condition. Just got my dies and cartridge conversion kit from Dillon today. I`ll see how it shoots and may carry it a day or 2 deer hunting this fall. I do love those old 3 screw Rugers. I now have the .22 Convertable, .357, .41 mag, .44 mag, and .45 Colt.

Yeah Catfish it's hard to beat a old 3 screw Ruger's. I had a few of them and stupidly traded off all but two. I still have a OM 6 1/2" in 45 "Convertible" and a OM Blackhawk in 357 mag w/ 4 5/8" bbl.Prices are soaring on these Old Models.

Redhawk, Your right about the prices, but the New Model just doesn`t have the feel or the triger the old 3 screws had. I`ve done trigger jobs on several New Models and got got most of them to the factory setting of the old 3 screws. I still think that the Ruger Blackhawks are the best for the dollar on the market today, but they`re just not as good as the 3 screws, and that`s why I paid more for it than I could have bought a new gun for.

I have some of the New Models and they don't compare to the old three screw models.One thing about it the three screws are just going to keep going up.I have one of the original Bearcats. If I remember right mine was made in 1972. I got it a gun show and it appears to be unfired NIB.

Sounds life a fair price if the gun is tight and no top strap scoring. Check the barrel with a bore scope or light. I have a 45/8 Ruger. Have killed bears, deer & pigs with it, all one shot kills. Been using this as my hunting handgun for over 30 years.
