Ok, here is my take on what I think the differences are.

Blackhawk - Single action revolver with loading gate

Super Blackhawk - Single action revolver with loading gate. Super Blackhawk feature heavier construction than the Blackhawk.

Redhawk - Double action revolver with swing out cylinder.

Super Redhawk - Double action revolver with swing out cylinder. The Super Redhawk has two trigger springs instead of one like the Redhawk.

Am I correct?

Thanks.

Blackhawk - Everything but 44 Mag, except for Blackhawk Hunters in 41 and 45 that are normally marked SUPER (there are odd exceptions)
Super Blackhawk - 44 Mag Blackhawks

Redhawk - different grip frame and receiver where barrel mounts compared to Super Redhawks.

Not so true, the basic gun is the same. Grip size is larger on some SBH, with some models having square back trigger guard.
