An all-new Ruger Redhawk revolver chambered to shoot both .45 Auto and .45 Colt cartridges is now available from Sturm, Ruger & Co. 

"The Redhawk has been one of the flagship revolvers in the Ruger line for 35 years, and this is the first time we have produced a Redhawk capable of shooting both a revolver caliber and pistol caliber from the same cylinder," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and COO. "Customers will not only find this revolver to be attractive, but also very utilitarian for a number of shooting applications."

The Ruger Redhawk revolver was Ruger's first double-action revolver specifically designed for the powerful .44 Mag. cartridge. Featuring a stainless steel construction, the revolver also comes with a triple-locking cylinder, and a unique, single-spring mechanism to enable a smooth, light trigger pull. This new model features a round butt frame, and checkered and textured hardwood grips. The 4.2", half-lug barrel offers reduced weight and excellent balance. A fully adjustable black blade rear sight and red ramp front sight provide quick target acquisition. Additionally, the revolver ships with three full moon clips that act as both a speedloader for the .45 Auto rounds and aid in the ejection of the spent cartridges.
