I have seen some Redhawks every once and a whilewith 5 1/2" barrels, but I was wondering if any of you have seen any with 7 1/2" barrels or even an integral scope mount? Also, I was wondering if any of you have any information on the Ruger Redhawk in .357?
Most redhawks are produced with 7.5" barrel (most)and come with ruger rings. They have been produced in .357,.41mag,.44mag,.45lc. In addition to 7.5" and 5.5",they are making them in .44mag now with a 4" barrel. Those shorter than 7.5" only come with open sights.
I'm looking for 1 in .45LC myself if anybody has 1 for sale.
I like the redhawks a LOT better than the super redhawks for following reasons: lockwork on redhawk uses 1 spring for hammer AND trigger return spring,making for lightest,smoothest double action trigger pull this side of colt pythons. The ring grooves in barrel set the scope farther forward so you'll be able to cock the hammer for single action shooting without needing a spur extension or banging your thumb against scope,and the extended frame/barrel support is totally uneccecary,adds extra weight,and UGLYYYY.
Am currently looking for a 7.5" barreled redhawk with rings in .45Lc to convert to .454 casull-I like redhawks so much more than the "super" sister revolver that I am converting redhawk instead of simply bying a super in that caliber.
