The early .357 and .41 Redhawks bring a premium and that's not a bad price for it. I had one like it in stainless among a group of 14 guns that got stolen from me and it's the one I miss the most.

Maybe so Jay, 90% of the Redhawks you see are chambered in .44 Mag. If it's meant to be one will find it's way into your hands and who knows one day maybe I'll replace mine.

That's likely the least common Redhawk ever made.

There are some earlier Redhawks in .45 Colt as well.

As stated above, the EARLY (first ten years or so) production Redawks in 41RM and 357Magnum were made in lower numbers and were argueably lotsa steel for the cartridge. Not really rare just tougher to find when looking for one?

I had one of each and frankly I traded them off as I found no real advantage for them. The slight ($40-50) premium above a 44RM model was not noticed. Note that while I never felt undergunned with the 41 revolver across my lap in a treestand - I always thought of the 44's versatility, from 800 fps "Special" loads to 300 gr monster-ready rounds, should some wayward 30-foot Anaconda rise out of the swamps... :shock:
:shock: Only then did I fear the 41RM was somehow limiting for me.

The Redhawk was designed specifically around the 240 grain 44 Magnum, some say over-designed. It will take constant use of heavier bullets and charges. Romance of other brands aside, It remains King of its purpose. Buy one or get another. 8-)

- and yes, later production of 357, 41, and 45 Redhawks are all "less gun" than the 44RM revolver. There, I said it. :o

I have been looking for the .41mag Redhawks now for almost a year. The early Redhawks that I have seen for sale were all well used, and the prices were double what they sold for. Ruger hasn't made many in 41mag. Most of what I have seen lately are all Davidson's exclusives and carry about a $100.00 premium. In fact they just came out with 3 different barrel lengths in the .41mag. Redhawk and they have already sold out of the 4 1/2" model. These are all limited quantity guns and if you want one don't wait, they don't seen to last long.

Davidson's also had made for them 2 barrel lengths in the .41mag. Super Redhawk. I was able to get the 7 1/2' but I missed the 2 3/4" . These are some hefty guns!

Also, if you are a 41 fan there are 2 Super Blackhawks in .41mag., 1 is a S/S standard model and the other is a S/S Bisley, both are "Hunter" models.

I know the .41mag. has been sort after by hunters for years, but I believe there is quite a collector demand building. IMO
