Man, not me! I doubt you would either after firing one round. Imagine the muzzleblast and recoil such a "lightweight" monster would produce! I shudder to think....Dennis :shock:fatherof4":35wog8ic said:I would really like to have a 4" Redhawk in the 500S&W.
That'll never happen. The Maximum frame could not withstand the 60,000psi pressure of the .500S&W. It's at its limit with the Linebaugh Longs and those are bank vault-tight custom guns.azrugershooter":rfqr4nqy said:Ruger has a platform sitting in mothballs.

No, produce a five-shot Bisley in .480 if anything. Market it right and it will sell. It's all the revolver most folks will ever need.
