Sturm, Ruger & Company’s new Ruger Redhawk revolver (No. 5032) is chambered to shoot both .45 Auto and .45 Long Colt cartridges. Suggested retail is $1029. The Redhawk has been one of the flagship revolvers in the Ruger line for 35 years, and this is the first time the company has produced a Redhawk capable of shooting both a revolver cartridge and a pistol cartridge from the same cylinder.
The Ruger Redhawk revolver was Ruger’s first double-action revolver specifically designed for the powerful .44 Magnum cartridge. It embodies many advanced features such as a triple-locking cylinder, a unique single spring mechanism for a smooth, light trigger pull and all stainless steel construction.
It weighs 44 ounces empty and holds six rounds. The Redhawk is 9.5 inches long. This new model features a round-butt frame to make it more compact. The lasered hardwood grips are checkered and textured. The 4.2-inch half-lug barrel offers reduced weight and excellent balance. To shoot various load weights, there’s an adjustable black-blade rear sight and red-ramp front sight.
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 spent cartridges. Additional full-moon clips can be purchased three to the pack.
