Are there any differences between the 5.5" Redhawk that I own and the new 4" Redhawks? Is it just the barrel length? Can the wood panels be used on the new ones?

I think I read that there are some minor internal differences that Ruger did to improve the trigger. Externally they are the same. I took off the houge grips & put some wood panels on that i got on ebay.

Thanks, guys. I didn't know you had the 4" RH, Deadeye. How do you like it? How does it shoot? I'd like to put a 4" barrel on my 45 Colt. I don't know if Ruger will do it or not. They are so anal sometimes. :roll:

From the guy that cant keep his hands off of a thing he owns, get the 4” 45, the 51/2” is worth more like it is,like my 41 they stopped making them years ago. :)

I've posted several pics & talked about it in several threads around here. Where have you been? :roll:

I love it! It stays next to my bed, loaded with Hydro-Shocks. It's in a Man's caliber ya know, .44Mag! :p

Well I like it. Was the grip panel swap easy or did you have to do anything to make them fit?

No they fit right on no mods necessary. The hogues are a little tricky to get off, you have to use the little wedge tool that comes with the gun. But once you get them off the wood grip panels slap right on.

The 4" in 44 mag go fast. I sold a bunch of stuff I had around and had the cash raised and used it to pay bills when things got tight this summer. I need another stimulus check and if not next spring it's happening. They wholesale for $548 plus shipping so figure $575 as the wholesale price.

When I get it that will be my 4" 44 Special as well.

D/E:

Do you stoke it with 44 Mag's for the nightstand or 44 Spl?
