Potent Strength & Power. Since its introduction in 1979, the Ruger Redhawk has proven to be a rugged, reliable, accurate and very strong sixgun. As a rule of thumb, Ruger's double action revolvers like the Redhawk have heavier frames and thicker chamber walls than the competition. They are built for years of hard use and will never wear out. The design is a solid frame and the massive cylinder locks up in front at the crane and at the rear into the recoil plate of the heavy frame. The ejector rod does not rotate, and will never unscrew itself from its fixed position, locking up the cylinder, as happens too frequently with some other double-action revolvers. The cylinder bolt notches are cut a bit off center, making a stronger cylinder wall than on designs that place this cut directly over the center of each chamber.

The investment cast frame of the Ruger Redhawk has no removable side plate; most of the internal parts are attached to the trigger guard assembly, which is removed from the bottom of the frame. Most revolvers on the market are built on a removable side plate design that is over one hundred years old. They were built to handle low pressure cartridges of the period. When .44 magnum cartridges came along in the '50s, the old designs were just made larger to handle the extra intensity of firing magnums. Still, magnum revolvers built on the removable side plate design tend to loosen with heavy use. Ruger’s double action revolvers like the Redhawk have always been built without a removable side plate. This adds needed strength to the frame around the cylinder.

The Ruger Redhawk comes equipped with adjustable sights and hardwood grips. The hammer spur is checkered for a secure hold while cocking the piece for single action fire, and the firing pin is protected from accidental discharge by Ruger’s famous and proven transfer bar safety system. This makes it nearly impossible for the gun to "go off" when dropped. When the hammer is fully forward, it rests on the frame and cannot contact the firing pin. The transfer bar itself rises as the trigger is pulled. Then when a cocked hammer falls, it hits the transfer bar (thus "transferring" the energy to the firing pin) which subsequently fires the shot. Loaded and unloading is easily accomplished by pressing in on the button mounted in the frame's left recoil shield, which subsequently swings the cylinder out. This heavy duty workhorse features a solid stainless steel construction, and includes a 5.5" barrel. The action is driven by a traditional double / single design and unlike other revolvers, Ruger exclusively uses higher quality music wire springs.
