    I've found a UK spec long barrel Redhawk in .357 complete with a Leopold long range pistol scope.

    This one has a 12" barrel with a rod extension leading back from the grip butt. Usually they have a 18" barrel (yes, 18").

    The 12" version is as rare as rocking horse do-do.

    Usually the only choice is a Taurus or a BRNO but I think I've hit the jackpot. :cool:

    I did have a .44 Taurus LBR but I sold it to my nephew to partially finance the Ruger. I'm also buying a .22lr Taurus, I guess 22lr will be OK.

    Will post photos when I get it.

    12" barrel heck you can use it for a walking stick if needed. Sound like a nice pistol. I have two Redhawks myself 357 mag and 41 mag and love both of them. Have fun.

    It sucks you guys have to get such long ones but it should be a shooter.
    Good find.

    Well, here it is, I think I will be taking the scope off as I mostly shoot up to 25 yards.

    Sorry for rubbish quality pics, I need a new camera
