Bought my SRH in 1989. Bill Ruger wanted the absolute strongest 44 Magnum ever made. He did it, and 25 years later, it still is. Excellent gun, very accurate. It will be the one I never sell. Its also the one that makes everyone take notice. It used to be one of the biggest, meanest gun available. Now the S&W 500s have taken that title.

SRH is one tough brute. A blast to shoot & very accurate.

I'm looking for one too (at a reasonable price).
I bought the SRH above off of Gun Broker about a year ago (11/3/11) for $449.95 plus $20 shipping. My LGS doesn't charge any transfer fee due to the amount of business I do with them so the total cost for this gun including shipping was $469.95. I don't think you will find too many deals like that.

In the last two photos above, I noticed that the angle of the grips is different for each. Did Ruger make two different guns?

If you are only going to have one .44 magnum, it should be a Redhawk or Super Redhawk. If I carry one hunting or for wilderness trips, it is my Redhawk 7 1/2 inch. I also have two Super Blackhawks, a Colt Anaconda 8 inch, and an S&W 29 8 inch. They only go to the range with me.

I've been looking at the SRH also. How would you classify the frame size as compared to an SP101 or GP100 ( as in S&W parlance--J, K, L, N, X).

The GP-100 is a medium frame,the SRH is a large frame. I've had my Gp-100 and SRH since the late 90's. Both are outstanding! With the option to use a scope, on the SRH.I have a Ultra Dot,and be able to attach/remove at will with out losing zero's nice. When I first started reloading,I was checking on hot loads for the .44.People would ask "what are you shooting?".....Super Redhawk........" You have the best/strongest gun for HOT loads"
