    I picked this up last month and figured to post it here.

    Its a 4.5" Blackhawk in 41mag, built in '67. Its completely original and near pristine condition. :cool:

    Oh my. You got the box and paper work too. I recently snagged a Redhawk 5 1/2 blued in .41 magnum. Looks like only 2 chambers have been fired. She is sweet.

    Thanks.

    I've always preferred the old model Blackhawk action over the transfer bar. It just feels much better.

    No plans other than occasional range trips. This is actually my first 41mag after all these years of shooting and collecting.

    Very nice

    I've got a newer blued Redhawk in 44mag. I believe it was built in 2002.

    They're very strong revolvers.

    I have owned many Redhawks. Some Super Redhawks. Currently have five of them. I own a 7 1/2 inch stainless .357 magnum. A huge gun for that caliber. So sweet to shoot. The hottest loads I feed it feel like light .38's.
    I found the blued .41 while looking for a stainless .41 with the 5 1/2 bbl. Had a stainless 5 1/2 years ago in .41 and got talked out of it.

    The only Super Redhawk I own is the Alaskan in 454.

    So it's not, upon further inspection, a flat top. But it is nice.

    Thanks my friend. :)

    The way I angle the pics, its hard to tell. The bottom pic with the box is the only one that really shows the sight ramp.

    Beautiful revolver! Just to be that guy though, isn't it actually 4 5/8"?

    I have a beautiful 1958 production 4 5/8" .357 flattop. Might be the best $400 I've spent on a revolver. No box and papers though. I guess we can't all have "Bac luck". Lol!
