Video: Ruger Redhawk .45 Colt Review

The venerable Ruger Redhawk is no stranger to sixgun lovers, but the company's newest ‘hawk boasts a classy round butt grip, 4.2 inch barrel and is chambered in .45 Colt, with the option of shooting .45 ACP in moonclips to boot.

In the video above, Jeff Quinn of demonstrates the wheelgun using both .45 ACP defensive rounds, and some heavy-hitting .45 Colt. Writes Quinn:

The newest Redhawk shown here combines the features of that round-butt sixgun with the longer barrel of the 4.2 inch version, and added the ability to fire 45 ACP ammunition using moon clips. As I stated at the beginning of this piece, the Redhawk just keeps getting better!

The newest Redhawk wears a round-butt grip frame that is fitted with good-looking wood grips which are partially checkered for a secure grip. The round butt frame fits my hand well, but for good control and comfort, I prefer the rubber Hogue grip as supplied with the 4.2 inch square-butt Redhawk when shooting the heaviest loads. The sights consist of the familiar fully-adjustable Ruger rear mated with an interchangeable front. The front sight supplied is black with a red insert.
