    New Pawn Shop Find-44mag SuperRedhawk

    I got this last week at my local pawn shop for $465. The Ruger SuperRedhawk 44 mag was pretty filthy, but I managed to clean it up just fine and dress it up with a new set of Hogue grips. I went to the range last weekend and was amazed at the shots I made with it at 75 and 100 yards. I think this will be a great Arizona hog gun.

    Wow, congrats. That's a nice looking gun. I just picked up a .44 Super Blackhawk this week. My first .44 and the thing really bites back when you pull the trigger. It would be neat to be able to fire it alongside yours to see how they compare.

    Enjoy!

    TinkerinWstuff, I was suprised the weight of the SuperRedhawk makes recoil not bad at all and easy for follow-up shots. My SP101 in 357mag is much worse...Very nice Blackhawk by the way!

    finding a better way to grip the gun may help me a lot. The way I hold it I was getting stung by the back of the trigger guard and the pointy butt of the handle. I need to go back and practice with some light cowboy loads or .44specials. It didn't take long with the .44mags and I was starting to get flinchy.

    Nice find!

    You mentioned hunting hogs.

    I was talking to a guy once in Panama City, FL that would
    take people out to hunt hogs. He had a father and son from
    NY, that came down to hunt..

    The night they were out hunting they found nothing.
    Finally a smaller hog came long and the guy didn't
    shoot it right...it started to squeal. Then a whole
    herd of hogs came and the hunters had to jump
    into the water to get away from them...lol

    Different grips might help, as well.

    I have Pachmayr Decelerators on my 10.5" SBH, and I don't get the trigger guard sting that I do with wood-gripped SBH's.

    Heck of a deal! I wish I had found a deal like that! I'm jealous.

    Pikachu711, I had been eyeballing it for 10 months and offered $85 less than it was tagged for. I didn't expect them to take my offer, but it was my lucky day. I was in uniform maybe that helped, Arizona is a very military friendly state.
