Our Assessment: First made in 1979, the Redhawk is reinforced to handle extra stress, and has a longer cylinder than most competitor’s. This allows for either increase powder capacity and/or a heavier and therefore a longer bullet. Some custom ammunition manufacturers even have loads made specifically for the Redhawk that cannot fit in shorter cylinders of revolvers of weaker construction. This makes this revolver very popular with backpackers. Of course, it is also great for home protection
