Back in the late 1990s, I bought a NIB 7.5 barrel Redhawk .44 Magnum. It came with the factory-applied high gloss stainless finish. As I understand it, this super-shiny finish was not offered for long on the RH; however you can still get Vaqueros with that finish. I still have it, and it still looks and shoots great. The thing is, I have never seen another RH for sale with the aforementioned gloss stainless finish. I've never encountered one at any gun show, nor have I ever found one on any of the gun auction web sites. I'm sure that someone out there has, but not me. Now, I know that I don't exactly have a super-rare gun worth big bucks here, but my questions for you Ruger historians out there: How long did Ruger offer that finish on the RH, and exactly how rare are those particular RH revolvers today? Thanks, all.
