These are produced for the UK by Ruger as the minum barrel lenght in the UK is 12" and these are in .44 Magnum

22" barrel

I always thought the SRH was too dang heavy with the normal barrel lengths! I bet that 22 inch one is a real monster to try to hold steady. You would have to have a rest to shoot it.

Is that a wire stock or a west support in the second photo? :eek:

My guess is that because it's Great Britan (UK), they allow these although not to practical but functional. This probably is to make sure no one conceals and handguns as the minum barrel length is 12".

It does appear that the 12" model does have a wire stock of some kind. I personally would not want one of these, as I don't feel they would serve a purpose. The 12" model would see some range time, but the 22" model would be to blasted heavy.

Doesn't stir and interest in me. I believe the 12" model has a wrist support, where the wire loop rests on the underside of the forearm.

Yep that is alot of wasted metal for those long barrels. But our brothers across the pond if they want to hunt with a handgun this is what is available to them with a 12" minum barrel length.

At least they are still being able to shoot.

Put one of them in an IWB holster and you'd look like John Dillinger. :eek:

Makes me wonder why noone's made a revolving rifle in modern cartridges...or carbine....saw a huge old black-powder-looking thing in El Dorado....what'd it be like in .357 or .44-swing-out cylinder and 18" barrel....hmmmm

There are a couple of companies that are making revolving rifles on the 45 Colt single action. I thing Beretta is one of them. The ones I have seen are beautiful.
