The Ruger Redhawk revolver is a formidable double-action firearm meticulously engineered for handling heavy Magnum cartridges, boasting a host of cutting-edge features.
At the heart of the Redhawk‘s design lies its exceptional crane and cylinder assembly, which securely locks into the frame at both the rear of the cylinder and the front of the crane. Notably, the ejector rod serves as a dedicated extractor and does not rotate with the cylinder. Behind the trigger, a single coil spring powers both the hammer and trigger, enhancing operational efficiency while minimizing friction loss. What’s more, this intricate mechanism can be disassembled without the need for any tools, breaking down into just a few easily manageable subassemblies for effortless inspection and cleaning. Notably, the internal components can be installed from either the top or bottom of the grip-frame, obviating the need for a side plate. This design choice results in a solid frame configuration that significantly bolsters the revolver’s durability and reliability.
The Ruger Redhawk revolver also incorporates an ingenious transfer bar system directly linked to the trigger. As the trigger is pulled rearward, the transfer bar rises into the firing position, channeling the energy from the hammer’s strike to the firing pin. This transfer-bar safety system ensures that the hammer’s force can only be transmitted to the firing pin when the trigger is fully depressed to the rear, offering an intrinsic layer of safety. Notably, the Redhawk revolver can be carried with all chambers loaded, and when the hammer and trigger return to their forward positions, the transfer bar is lowered from the firing position, allowing the hammer to rest securely on the frame.
- Precision Barrel: The cold hammer-forged sleeve and shroud barrel guarantees outstanding accuracy.
- Smooth Trigger Pull: An innovative single-spring mechanism provides a remarkably smooth and light trigger pull.
- Triple-Locking Cylinder: The cylinder is triple-locked into the frame at the front, rear, and bottom, ensuring precise alignment and dependable operation shot after shot.
- Sight Options: Enjoy easy sighting with a replaceable colored front blade sight insert and an adjustable rear sight featuring a white outline.
- Rugged Construction: Crafted from rugged stainless steel and devoid of side plates, the Redhawk is purpose-built to withstand the most potent magnum loads, thanks to added metal reinforcement in key areas like the top strap, sidewalls, and barrel mounting sections.
- Safety First: The transfer bar mechanism offers unparalleled security against accidental discharge.
- Versatile Caliber: Models in .44 Magnum are dual chambered to accept factory .44 Special cartridges as well.
