Ruger Redhawk 357 Magnum 8-Shot New - 2017

Ruger Redhawk 357 Magnum 8-Shot Model 5033



Single-spring mechanism allows for a smooth, light trigger pull.

Triple-locking cylinder is locked into the frame at the front, rear and bottom for more positive alignment and dependable operation shot after shot.

Easy sighting with readily replaceable, colored insert front blade sight and adjustable rear sight with white outline.

Rugged stainless steel construction with no side plates, is designed specifically to handle powerful magnum loads through extra metal in top strap, sidewalls and barrel mounting areas.

Patented transfer bar mechanism provides an unparalleled measure of security against accidental discharge.

Cylinder relieved for full moon clips, three included.

You tell your wife when you get a new gun?
Mine always seems so much happier not knowing about it.

LOL!!!!!..............I must be "out of touch" with the market, because here we have another new Ruger I have absolutely ZERO desire to own. They have not had anything new that I was remotely interested in since the 1911. And all these snubby barrel revolvers are surely not doing it for me, just like the plastic pistols don't, or the black rifles, plastic stocks, cheaper actions, etc, etc. Too traditional I guess

If it came in a 4" barrel I'd be all over it...

The original post reads like it was written by the Ruger marketing department but the part quoted above can't pass without comment. The Redhawk is known for many things but having a "smooth, light trigger pull" is not one of them. Smooth, heavy trigger pull I would agree with. DA is generally smooth if a bit heavy and SA is just heavy. The single spring design does not respond as easily to action work and a lighter spring often results in poor ignition. Ignition problems are the reason Bowen offers a firing pin upgrade to greater protrusion.

It's a nice looking big frame snubby and I like short barreled revolvers in general. But I think Ruger would have more folks jazzed over a 7 shot GP100 than an 8 shot Redhawk. It's a cool novelty piece but I think they should have gone after the 686+ market first.

The OP was a copy and paste. Nothing more nothing less.

As for your comment about the folks being jazzed about a 7-shot GP100. The Redhawk 357 Magnum back then had a issue with the cylinder notches as well as the the locks and timing, plus the weight of the cylinder. Ruger dealt with it by removing weight by adding two more shots and by not fluting the cylinder. I'm fine with that cause what I'm after, is weight and round count. Mine will be nothing more than a range pistol for training.

As for the rest of your comment, some might take that into consideration, but for me, I will own one once it hits the market.

Do I need another revolver, not really, but I will own one regardless if I need it or not. I have enough Ruger firearms to fill a foot locker. I'm not buying this revolver to ease a justification or a need, I'm buying because I want it.

All good comments by the way.

Every time I try to fall in love with a Redhawk some expert dipstick walks by and whispers into my ear. Heck, even Garrett runs off the twinky fingered Blackhawk shooters.

Dang it Ruger I ordered my GP100MC and now you introduce the Redhawk .357mag mag for 2017. Tempting decision that I don't have to make. Nice option for those who want to load more than standard 6 round cylinder and willing to carry the extra weight on the hip.
