While waiting for my .45 Redhawk to come back and shopping around for a .454 SRH for a donor cylinder I keep running across a lot of .480 Ruger SRHs for sale at somewhat reasonable prices.
So the obvious thought comes to mind: How about a Redhawk in .480 Ruger? It would involve a barrel rebore but one could start with a cheaper .44 Mag instead of a .45 Colt required for a .454 conversion. One could also use a 5.5" barrel if desired in instead of the 4.2" 45 Colt. I'm also assumming the 6 shot .480 cylinders are still avaliable or you could probably get a 5 shot conversion for a 6 shot .480 SRH that should inprove its value slightly.
I know there are some high dollar Bowen conversion of the Redhawk but this could be an affordable gun if the barrel rebore isn't too bad. I looked on the internet for some info but couldn't find anyone that had done the conversion - I'm sure they are out there somewhere.
Anybody got any info or thoughts on this?
