Ruger Redhawk In .45 ACP And .45 Colt

Now this is interesting. Ruger is getting into the .45 ACP revolver game. They have just announced a new version of the Ruger Redhawk that will handle both the .45 ACP with moon clips and the .45 Colt.

The specs are below:

Model Number: 5032 | Caliber: 45 Auto / 45 Colt
Material: Stainless Steel Finish: Satin Stainless
Front Sight: Ramp Rear Sight: Adjustable
Barrel Length: 4.2″ Overall Length: 9.50″
Weight: 44.00 oz. Grips: Lasered Hardwood
Twist: 1:16″ RH Grooves: 6
MA Approved & Certified: No CA Approved: No
Capacity: 6 Suggested Retail: $1029.00

It’s a bit pricey but they are still making double action revolvers unlike the bankrupt Colt. I have a couple Ruger revolvers and they are solid, well-made handguns.

UPDATE: Ed Head has part one of his review of the Ruger Redhawk in .45 ACP/.45 Colt up. Ed is one of the people that Ruger sends firearms to so that they can be wrung out before launch.

An Interesting Review Of The Glock 41

Almost lost in all the hoopla over Glock introducing a single stack .380 ACP pistol was their other introduction at the SHOT Show – the Glock 41. This new pistol is a long-slide Glock along the lines of the Glock 34 and 35 but in .45 ACP. Greg Hickok in his review below refers to it being “practical-tactical” in that is could both be used for competition and for self-defense.

The reason I’m posting the review by Greg aka Hickok45 is that it is one of the best reviews of this new pistol that I’ve seen. I think the Glock 41 will probably sell well and give other double-stack .45s a run for their money. I don’t know if I’d trade my 1911s for it but I might add it to the gun collection.
