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 SteelFinish:Satin Stainless
Front Sight:RampRear Sight:Adjustable
Barrel Length:4.2"Overall Length:9.50"
Weight:44.00 oz.Grips:Lasered Hardwood
Twist:1:16" RHGrooves:6
MA Approved & Certified:NoCA Approved:No
Capacity:6Suggested 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.
