Nice revolver. I've got a 4" Security Six .357 that I purchased new in 1984 that looks very similar. Although I must say, I like the Pachmayr grips on mine more than the stock ones.
I went out shooting this evening using the stock grips, and we shall see the next time I go out which ones I like most. This trip was just to get the feel of the Redhawk shooting both .44 Special, I can see why Skeeter Skelton loved the .44 Special and .44 Magnum...Nice revolver.

Absolutely... can't wait to go shooting again with it.Very nice. As you can tell by my name, I'm a big fan of the Redhawk. 44 spl/mag being one of my all time favorite calibers too. I'm sure you'll enjoy that beauty.
I might have to hunt one of those down, after I pay off the 6" GP100 have on layawayRuger View attachment 13618
Redhawk .44 Magnum 4.2"
It's the fact that it's a Ruger with the greatest customer service.. I once bought a used Redhawk that had a canted barrel from being over tightened by production. They couldn't fix it, and said we'd like to build you a new Redhawk 5.5" if that's okay. I snapped that up in a heartbeat and have pretty much stood by them since. And yes this Ruger Redhawk 5.5" that I have now, does shoot as expected no issues on accuracy at all.I had one that I used for deer hunting in the swamp back in the early '90's.
The Redhawks are hell for stout; but I like the S&W Model 29 and 629 better.
As long as it shoots good for you; that's all that matters.
