I just picked it up. It's used. I'm going to look into getting the cylinder milled so that it'll accept moonclips and then it'll shoot 45 acp too.

Now that is a handful of gun! I am assuming some guy had the barrel chopped before Ruger came out with the Alaskan? Dang, I would not want to shoot that with a full powered .454!

The barrel length is 2 7/8" here's the front sight. It's a dovetail cut.

I thought it was, a nice job that they did. Buy the way you could still put a scope on it for hunting. :D

Here you go BH, we have the same rear sights and I think you have a better front sight.

Yeah I like my front site better. It's very easy to see. My barrel is a little longer too. :)

Nope. If I get it milled it'll be good for the 45acp with clips and 454, 45 Colt and 45 rimmed without. Of course I could use moon clips for everything once it's milled if I choose to. The star ejector is shortened, but still long enough to eject rimmed cartridges.

Oh boy my blood pressure is getting up there!

I'll make a video of me shooting the gun and the gun cracking me in the head. It should be a big hit here. :)
