Ruger continues to build one of the best revolvers around. This gun feel sturdy and shoots extremely accurate. With open sites it aquires quickly, with a red dot or scope you can shoot under 3" groups at 50 yards consistently. It's not a light gun, but that helps reduce felt recoil of the .44 mag. I switched the Ruger rings for a base that converts to Weaver rings without removing the rear site specifically for a red dot. This allows removal of the red dot and use of the open sites in case of battery or scope failure. Great gun and can be found for much less than the $600+ MSRP.
