SRH 480 Ruger

Description: 9.5 in cut down to 4 7/8ths. Matte SS and cylinder-hammer-trigger polished. Elk stag inserts. Weigland front sight.


The elves at Rods work shop had very un-nice things to say about it, but it is done. My thanks goes out to those who talked me out of selling it and having it worked on!!!


Rods work is absolutely 1st class!

Nah you should really sell it. Let me know I will suffer through the financial loss so you don't feel so bad.

It is a 480 Ruger.


It started life as a 9.5 in and wore a 2-7 Burris, but I just never used it. I really like my revolvers with 5in +/- barrels and iron sights.


I will try to do a little wright up on it when I get a chance. I will be shooting it some this weekend with some of my cast bullets.

Got to shoot her today and I was impresses. It was like shooting full house 44 Mag loads. It impresses me considering I was shooting a 385gr bullet at 1100+ fps.
