The Redhawk, which has been in the Ruger line for 35 years, was Ruger’s first double-action revolver specifically designed for the powerful .44 Magnum cartridge. It embodies many advanced features such as a triple-locking cylinder, a unique single spring mechanism for a smooth, light trigger pull and all stainless steel construction.
The new model features a round butt frame for a more compact feel and hardwood grips that are checkered and textured, resulting in a solid grip and great control.
The 4.2 inch, half-lug barrel offers reduced weight and excellent balance. A fully adjustable black blade rear sight and red ramp front sight provide quick target acquisition.
Additionally, the revolver ships with three full moon clips that act as both a speed loader for the .45 Auto rounds and aid in the ejection of the spent cartridges.
