I have noticed for quite some time now, that when I go to the gun safe, I leave with my Redhawk 45lc/acp.

That's got me thinking, that I really need a Redhawk 44 mag with a 5 1/2" barrel.

Help me feed the need, let's see some pics and video's of your Redhawk's. Successful hunts, loads used, holsters, and even custom Redhawks would be great.

Thanks to all the enablers.

I would never try to talk someone out of buying another gun[buy buy buy] but you already have perfection in the .45 colt .Anything else is just another toy.

I agree, the 44 does nothing that the 45 can't. But if you feel the need.......

I have a Redhawk 44 mag with a 5.t inch barrel. I love it. I have killed several whitetail with it using iron sightsnout to 75 yards and one using a red dot sight. I can add a photo monday when I can get to a computer.

My profile photo shows me with a doe I took with it at 75 yards several years ago.

I believe want and need are synonyms.
I could be wrong, but I don't really want to find out either.

I like both the 44 mag and heavy 45 colt rounds, and find them pleasant to shoot. So having similar revolvers would just be a plus to me.

Thanks for the replies.

BRASF0311 and 45Man the 5 1/2" in RedHawk is my favorite barrel length. I have shot the 4 1/2" and the 7 1/2" I like the balance of the 5 1/2 best. Have you tried the 405gr RHO in the 45? Also for fun read the article on Garrett Cartridges about the 44 or 45?

A 41 in 5 1/2" would grab my attention.

WHAT IS THE 405gr RHO?

MY 41 REDHAWK IS THE ONLY 41 MAG I OWN SO I NEED TO KEEP IT, EVEN THOUGH IT IS A SAFE QUEEN.
