Howdy,

I just got info on the redhawk .357.

Eight rounds edge to edge in a nice circle on a double action.

SUCH a fine looking piece of stainless hardware.

Ruger mails too much stuff but from time to time a Winner.

Not a first choice for carry but so fine for around the ranch, perhaps?

Something to think about on cold snowy days?

Best

CR

Years ago we took a SS Redhawk in .44, cut the barrel to 4 inches, round butted it, crowned it, modified sights and polished the action. It is absolutely my favorite going into bear country gun. You won't be sorry with yours.....

Ruger introduced the Redhawk .45A last year. Chambered for .45 Colt and .45 ACP. It uses halfmoon clips that fit to the inside of the chambers, not the outside like a Smith 625 or Model 1917 by Smith or Colt. Very cool.

Red Hawk has 8 chambers in the 357? Really?

I have an S&W 327 Night Guard that holds 8 rounds of .357. Mine has the 2.5" barrel and I love it.

 

The only problem is finding a speed loader...and I wish I could get a 4" barrel installed but, alas, my particular 327 was made in 2012. The only Year they made that barrel configuration and barrel installation method so S&W will not convert it as they never made any other barrels for that model made in that year. But that's okay. I do love that revolver.

 

Having 8 rounds in a revolver makes it more bulky but so what? It's cool and it carries 8 rounds! I am sure the Ruger is just as cool. :-)
