    From what I understand the Redhawk has been discontinued.

    Around Thanksgiving I started talking to Gary Reeder about a single action project, and we got talking about Ruger since he builds so many of his guns on Ruger SA frames and he gets certain parts from them. He said then that the Redhawk had been temporarily discontinued in deference to the demand for more popular guns. When I saw him a few weeks ago, he said the Redhawk had been dropped, period.
