Every rule is made to be broken. And so it is with this Revolver. What we have here is a Ruger Redhawk chambered in both 45LC & 45ACP. The cylinder is recessed to accept moon clips for the ACP round.
Personally, and I know this is sacrilege, I have never been a huge fan of Ruger revolvers in general. Nothing was wrong with them. And I understand, and can plainly see, they are massively overbuilt to tolerate insane pressures.
All one has to do in this case is look at how thick the top-strap is. That thing looks thick enough to handle 500 Linebaugh, much less any possible, crazy-nuclear 45 Colt load.
But what really gets me with this gun is the balance, the great trigger, cut for ACP moon clips, stainless steel and completely adjustable sights.
It’s a hell of a pig gun. Which easily many boomer revolvers can be. But outside of pig hunts, I could cheaply and enjoyably shoot 45ACP the rest of the year.
That last part is important. Most “boomers” kinda suck to shoot so they sit 99% of the time. This configuration gives guys like me the best of both worlds.
Yes, I’m literally talking myself into it as I write this description. Lord help me and the armory budget.
Anyway, here are the highlights:
- Large frame.
- 6 shots.
- 4.2” barrel.
- 45 Colt / 45ACP
- Great trigger pull.
- Handsome grips.
- Overbuilt for magnum loads.
- 3/4ths under-barrel lug.
- Adjustable rear sight.
- Replaceable front.
