“The Redhawk has been one of the flagship revolvers in the Ruger line for 35 years, and this is the first time we have produced a Redhawk capable of shooting both a revolver caliber and pistol caliber from the same cylinder,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and COO. “Customers will not only find this revolver to be attractive, but also very utilitarian for a number of shooting applications.”

As the press release notes, the Ruger Redhawk is the company’s first-ever double-action revolver designed for the .44 magnum cartridge. It features a triple-locking cylinder, a unique single spring mechanism for a smooth and light trigger pull, and a stainless steel construction. In addition, this new model comes with a round butt frame for a compact feel, and hardwood grips that are checkered and textured for a solid grip.

Meanwhile, 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. Additional full moon clips can be purchased at
