    Default Question about Ruger ''hawks

    I'm new to revolvers. What's the difference behind Redhawks, Blackhawks, Super Blackhawks, and New Model Super Blackhawks?

    Thanks

    I'll take a stab at it!

    Redhawks are double action .44 mag, .45 Colt and .41 mag (gone now).

    Super Redhawks double action, UGLY, .454 & .480 (gone now).

    Blackhawks, .357/.38, .44, .41, .45 Colt/.45 acp.

    Super Blackhawks .44 & .45 Colt.

    New Model Super Blackhawks fluted cylinder & rounded trigger guard not that 'Dragoon' finger breaking P.O.S.!

    Then there are the Bisleys........

    I'm sure I've left a bunch out, or gotten something wrong.

    Blackhawhs are single action like the old Colt peacemaker cowboy gun.

    Readhawks are double action with the cylinder folding out for loading.

    And just so it's not missed, the Ruger Alaskan is basically a Super Redhawk with a snub barrel that's flush with the front of the frame. It comes with a Hogue Tamer grip, which might or might not be the same one that's equipped on regular SRH's.
