I would love to own either one or even both.

I know that these are .454 Casull, but the .45 Colt is calling out to be shot out of it.

Here is one shortend to 5.5"


Here is looking at the rib over the barrel and new sight.


Here is one shortend to 4.25"

Yeah me too. I really don't know which one I like better. I'd shoot some nasty 45 Colt loads out of them. :)

I'll bet that extra weight helps the recoil a bit....they sure look strong!!!

I did find out thru another forum board that the guy will not work on US guns because of U.S./Canadian Customs etc. Now if you like what you saw in the pictures he is gonna be manufacturing those top ribs for projects so we can have our gunsmiths do the work here.

I have been giving this alot of thought, and would love to get an SRH now and the .454 Casull is on the top of the list. The .480 Ruger would be nice but, componants like reloading dies cost more. Even though the .480 Ruger has less recoil, the .454 Casull has better options for reloading from .45 Colt cowboy loadings to the wildest extreme.

We will see.... because I still like the .44 Magnum :lol:



Ruger Super Redhawk® double action revolvers meet the challenge of using a revolver to hunt big game and offer the following design features:

** .44 Magnum Super Redhawk models feature satin finish stainless steel.

** Strong extended frame has extra metal in top strap, sidewalls and barrel mounting areas to handle the powerful .44 Magnum and .454 Casull cartridges.

** Super Redhawk scope models feature frame integral scope mounts and include free Ruger scope rings for accurate scope mounting.

** Patented single spring mechanism for both hammer and trigger.

** Triple-locking cylinder is positively locked into the frame at the front, rear, and bottom for more positive alignment.

** Peg-style grip frame easily accommodates custom grips.

** Target Gray® Super Redhawk model, feature a unique corrosion-resistant, low-glare finish.

I read the thread over there and now I want one to cut down too. It would make a great packing gun.

Those fugly grips do look better on a DA than the SA, and I must say I have held both of these models with the new grips and with the old grips......

But I'm thinking if I get the ultament handgun for hunting, I am tossed between the DA and SA but can't afford both.

So we will see.
