    Now those are some beasts! I saw one at a local show years ago but didn't buy it..

    Oh, well. I'd like one of the new ones with a 4" tube in 45 colt. Maybe one day.
    Give me a Scotch, I'm starving!

    I've always felt that the older RedHawk's were given less then fair play by the gunwriters. They are everything you could want in any magnum gun. Strong DA's that have plenty of meat in the right areas. You rarely hear mention of endshake with these puppies. And then, only after a steady diet of full house magnums and Ruger only loads that would rattle most other guns to death.

    Triggers are a work in progress sometimes...but a proper tune makes them run like a finely tuned clock...

    Good on you, Amigo

    I love to find a NIB older gun. You pay a premium price(At least I have, on one occasion. ) but get a new gun, at a lower price than the current new production guns. That Redhawk is beautiful! I prefer .357. It's enough gun for most situations, and doesn't abuse you in the process. Bob

    Red hawks are very popular where I come from.They are built like a tank and you can load them up to stop freight trains.

    You'll blow primers and split casings before you blow that one up!

    Well, yes and no...I had a Redhawk .45LC 5.5" barrel, and it would split cases due to the chambers being oversized, even with mild loads!! This was on a factory fresh gun too!! Since I had/have a Freedom Arms .454 Casull, I decided that I didn't need a "mere" .45 LC so I sold it off!
