    Default Value of Ruger Redhawk .44 Magnum

    I ran across a 7 1/2" SS Ruger Redhawk in .44 Magnum the other day for $350 and would like to know if that is an average, good, too high etc. price for the gun. I appears to be in excellent condition. I don't normally fool with Rugers so I'm not up on prices for them.

    While I'm a S&W man I though I might pick one up and see if I can determine why everyone is so excited about them. It appears to be kinda clunky to me and not well finished on the inside but them again it is considerably cheaper that a S&W 629. I have several of the older SA Rugers but they appear to be better finished inside the frame than the Redhawk.

    Thanks in advance for the help

    It seems like a good price as the new ones are pretty spendy. It would all depend on the condition of the gun.

    I have a used 5 and 1/2” Redhawk (blued) and I’m very happy with it. She shoots straight and handles hot loads. I have put more then 300 rounds of varying loads through it and have not experienced a single failure. I paid $350, but I also got two sets of fine wood grips, 2 speed loaders, 2 holsters (One leather shoulder holster) and 3 boxes of “heavy” custom hand loads.

    If it were me I would offer him $300.

    The price you paid sounds like a good deal. I don't really need one - it just like something different that I hadn't messed with before. I really like my 629 much better for carrying and shooting - the RH is a heavy gun for the caliber. One in .45 LC would probably be more practical for Alaska as it could be loaded close to .454 level where the weight would be less of an issue for the power level.

    Have you all made it up here yet? I'll try to give you a call over the holidays.

    That’s a good idea .45 LC is a nice round.

    Nope not yet, were moving up the day after Christmas. Can’t wait! If I don’t talk to you have a good Thanksgiving!
