Seems like I mostly see stainless RHs. Nice choice. A bit different.

I think they haven't made a blued one in over ten years
I like the looks of it

Holy smokes!!!! That is a BEAUTY!

I have a Super Redhawk 454 Casull with the gunmetal finish.

They're built like a tank so recoil is tame.

Those Hogue Bantam grips look really nice on the 5.5" model.

Blued Redhawks are always eye catchers. Nice to see something a bit different. Enjoy that one. I wish I had a 5.5". Much easier to carry than a 7.5". Great choice

thanks. I usually prefer wood grips, but these Hogue's with the blued finish seems to go together really well.

Your Redhawk really has a nice blue finish. Also, I like the Hogue rubber grips. I have a nice set of Hogue wood grips for my Smith & Wesson 617, but I keep the Hogue rubber grips on it most of the time just because I like the grip and feel of them.

Great buy for you! I have a 7.5 inch blued Redhawk with Hogue fancy wood grooved grips. I'm going to look at the Bantam ones. I installed Ruger grip medallions in the Hogue wood grips. You can't beat a blued gun ever!

Good to see the blued finish return to the Redhawk line. I'd like to see what a nice set of wood panels would look like on that. (I'm a sucker for wood & blue).
