The Ruger Redhawk revolver 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 relatively lighter trigger pull, easily replaceable front sights and adjustable rear sights, and all-stainless steel construction. Ruger Redhawks are perfect for the big game handgun hunter who needs the power of a .44 Magnum in a rugged, dependable revolver. First introduced in 1979. They have a 6-chamber cylinder, adjustable sights and can be fitted with a telescopic sight.
