New Redhawk 45 Colt+ACP

I bought one of the Last 45 Colt/45ACP Redhawks with a conventional barrel before they switched to the two piece barrel design. I was just wondering how the 2piece barrels are shooting compared to the older model. Reason I'm curious is that I saw a New Redhawk that I'm thinking about buying.

Very nice. Don’t know how the two compare though.

The two piece barrel wouldn’t scare me off. My lcrx has a two piece barrel and it shoots great, and I haven’t had any problems.

I'm old school and would prefer the conventional barrel set-up...
I'm not against 'change' but I want to see proven change before I invest...
Just because something's new doesn't make it better...especially in the long run...

Doug Guy runs Cylinderhone. He is on the Cast Boolits forum and has a page on Facebook. He can setup your revolver to shoot cast bullets. All of my revolvers go through his shop.

Cylinerhone is a must for .45 Colt and .45 ACP rugers. They all come from the factory with undersized throats so Doug hones out the cylinders to a proper ~.4525. It makes a big difference, you can find him on facebook under cylinderhone

They still make both if you're talking about the frame shroud.
