Well, my Alaskan was just delivered to Ruger today to repair the cylinder/barrel rub. Hopefully the turn around time is quick.

Old post but whatever...the recoil is very stout. I haven't shot a 44 since I was a kid and my dad let me shoot his blackhawk. So can't really honestly compare it to one. I'm no longer scared to shoot it like I was before I did. More than 2 cylinders would be outta my comfort level at this point. Accuracy was not really a concern as I was just trying to hold on and get over my fear. I love it but maybe got ahead of myself getting the 454. It is a great shooter of 45 lc tho. I need to work on my accuracy in 454. No plans to sell her.

Both of my .44s S&W 6" and 8-3/8" kicked harder in the palm of my hand, than the Alaskan 454 does. That's comparing 44 240g vs 454 300g. I think it's mostly due to a shorter barrel and better grip design on the Alaskan. My trigger finger gets a little sore from a casual grip at times and the gun has a snappy, violent jump to it but there's less pain if you hold it properly, than in my experience with the 44s.

I agree, my 29 smith 8&3/8's in 44 magnum is tough on your middle finger. Its a little snappy but not bad. The 454 is the second worst recoiling pistol I have fired. #1 being the 500 smith. I shot my alaskan 454 last week, around 20 rds, and it made my hand sore for several days. The desert eagle 50AE is not as nasty as any of the above. Its a real pleasure, and produces close to the same velocity, and kinetic energy. The 454 stout, and not for everybody, I plan to just stick with 45 colts for a more pleasureable range trip.

No question, the Alaskan is the coolest of cool. I'd love to try one out. A local shop near me has two in .454. I've got the Toklat (.454) which is an Alaskan with a slightly longer barrel.

My Alaskan also used to bind in DA - not acceptable as this is my backcountry bear carry.


Sent it back to Ruger and they fixed it up proper for free - super fast.


I had it back in my possession the same month it left my house.


Grats it is a beautiful revolver.

That is a beautiful revolver. I really do like non fluted cylinders.

Anyone know a good ccw holster? I just got a .44mag alaskan and put the gp100 compact rose wood grips on it, using it as my ccw but i only have a blackhawk iwb nylon holster, i had to modify the trigger guard area to get it to fit and the two "flaps" that are there now barely if at all cover the trigger. Dont really want a .44mag round to the waist or hip area so im looking for a good iwb. One other than Simply rugged. A generic iwb nylon or kydex will suffice as long as it actually fits the weapon. If anyone knows of anything like that please lmk, my local shops and wally have nothing. Thx again.

Diamond D makes some really nice holsters. Here is a chest holster that was made for the Toklat which is also made for the Alaskan. They also make a hip holster for the Alaskan:

If you bought the gun new you need to send the gun back to Ruger ASAP. It's not like there is a gunsmith on every corner that can fix the cylinder timing issues. We only have two real gunsmiths in town. The rest are AR15 assemblers and parts replacers. I doubt most of them can put a firing pin in a Browning Ciitori

I bought mine new. Who are you referring to....the OP with the Alaskan or me with the Toklat?

Which Ruger model has cylinder timing issues?
