    Ruger Super Redhawk - Followed me home

    Found a Super Readhawk in the LGS today. Picture below is a stock image but is identical to the one I bought. Definately not a CC weapon but I had been wanting a cowboy-like revolver for some time. The one I bought is circa 1992 but appears to have not been shot very much. $500.00 OTD. I hope I did OK.

    Thanks and have a nice weekend!

    ps, I can't edit the title but you know its Redhawk - not readhawk. My apologies..

    Congrats on the Super redhawk purchase. I know some people don't like the looks of them. But I think they are a cool looking revolver. One of these days I'll add 1 to my collection.

    Let us know how it shoots and what the trigger is like.

    Actually, your Super Redhawk is newer than you think. The style of box and cable lock told me that; those didn't show up until at least 2000 or so. But the envelope for the fired cartridge case has a 2001 date on it, so if the S/N on the envelope matches that on the gun, that's about the date of manufacture.

    You did well... that's a gun you'll probably never wear out!

    You have a very nice pistola there, I had the same one in Alaska (added a scope).

    Fun stuff. Those Redhawks are totally "get under your skin" guns.

    Now start saving for the ammo...

    Great revolver that will provide you with many years of good service, for hunting I found the X-15 to be the most comfortable way to carry.

    That was a stock image I swiped. The pistol I bought is however the same as the one in the photo (barrel length and type/style of grips. I keep leaving my camera at the office and my cell phone camera (I580) is horid. The date I arrived at was based on serial number information I got from Ruger.

    I must say it makes a beautiful center piece on the cocktale table in the family room.

    I'll post some actual pix and a range report as soon as my boss lets me have my camera back...

    I appreciate everyones comments.

    Best!

    You can go to the Ruger website, and in the customer support area you can do a S/N lookup to get the year of production.
