    Default New Ruger Super Redhawk Factory 5.5"

    Just got to fondle the new SRH 454 with factory 5.5" (may have been 5"). Basically Ruger have at last done what every one was doing to the SRH 7.5 and now produce a shorter bbl version. Apparently on shelves in about a month. Comes with adjustable rear, a couple of different front sights (marble style brass dot, standard ramp and fiberoptic). Retail around $1000-$1100. Real nice, balances well. Also comes cut for ruger scope mounts. My local fun shop has a 'fondle' model in.

    Thanks for the headsup. Ruger doesn't show it on their site yet. If they'd do the .480 in 5 or 5.5 ...!

    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

    Went to take some pics today but it has gone back to the distribuor. sorry guys, but apparently this was one of a number of AK demo models so it may be coming to an LGS near you soon for a fondle.

    I've had one of those for about 7 years now, but mine started as a 7.5".

    Just got mine yesterday and love it! Already had a .44 version milled to match but look forward to the added power.

    Stopped for a quick range session with the Toklat .454 today. I flinched like crazy but am happy to report the gun is very smooth and the recoil is not bad at all really. As for recoil, with 360g +P .45 ammo it is equivalent to my same gun in .44 mag pushing a 320g HC...has a bit more recoil with the .454 Casull 360g Corbon Penetrators but that is to be expected. Overall, very manageable and would recommend it in a heartbeat for those that want to carry a big bore revolver.
