#SundayGunday: Ruger Redhawk

by
posted on January 28, 2018

The Ruger Redhawk revolver, introduced in 1979, was, in the words of Ruger promotional materials, "an entirely new firearm, representing the most significant advance in the development of heavy-frame double action revolvers in many decades." Taking many of its cues from the successful Security-Six, the Redhawk was built to withstand the pressures generated by full-power .44 Magnum loads, and has certainly gained a passionate following from handloaders, who realized it’s beefed-up, one-piece frame can handle the hottest loads they’d be willing to make. Handgun hunters, too, flocked to the Redhawk, with its ability to hold six game-stopping .44 Magnum rounds, capable of dropping even large North American game. Learn more about it in the video embedded above, hosted by Managing Editor Jon Draper. MSRP: $1,079; ruger.com.
