    i am trying to find a super redhawk in 454, as you may know most of them come in the 7.5" barrel i however want it in the 4.25" barrel, i have seen them done before and love the idea, the tank of the ruger super redhawk but in a easier to carry length for hunting/backpaking. any recomendations on good gunsmiths in the area?

    pic of what i am looking for.

    I dont know if you've thought about this or not, but have you looked into buying an Alaskan? (its about an inch shorter though)

    I wouldn't go to the marksman to save my life.

    I know the Bullseye is questionable,but go see Bob (very rotund fellow).He's a gunsmith and if he can't do it he will tell you who to go to.

    Marksmans isn't worth the drive.
