Anybody using one? Im giving it some thought for a 4” redhawk thst has a vortex venom red dot. The holster looks like it may be just a little “roomy” to where it would work with the red dot installed...

I would holler at the shopruger store and get their input.

It reminds me of what they used to sell at Cabelas, called a Kenai Holster. My son wears a 5-1/2" Redhawk in his. Carried it for years. Nice holsters.

I have one and really like it. Now I use it for my SRH Alaskan, but have carried a SRH 480 that was chopped to 4.75 inches in it.

I think your Redhawk wold fit. Too bad you aren't closer you could try mine out.

Thanks everyone. The kenai looks decent but being molded , you’d have to custom order one or butcher up a regular model. I have a Diamond D leather chest rig now. I like it but dont really want to cut up the holster to allow room for the red dot either. For the price , I think I’ll give the Grovtec a try.

It seems like it would be an awfully tight fit to fit a MRDS equipped Redhawk in that holster.

Another option would be a Simply Rugged Sourdough on their Chesty Puller harness. I believe that Rob will build a holster with the appropriate cutout for a red dot.

I was judging by the looks of the extra room around the trigger guard and having a little extra room to slide it over that way? Rumrunner? Whats your opinion on that with yours?

Im not home to measure the base and sight but they are pretty low profile...

Here it is with my 4.75" Super RedHawk 480. I think there may be room to cant your Redhawk but not sure. I'm out of state working and won't be home for another week. I have a 5" 44 SRH now, and could look then to see if enuf room.

Finally got around to putting the Vortex mini red dot on the Redhawk. Fit in the Grovtec harness is pretty snug but it fits and feels secure in it. Im unable to post pics here anymore but will send one to anyone interested...
