I have the Redhawk .44 Mag Kodiak backpacker. A pleasure to shoot with 44 spcls. Not bad to shoot magnums from it either.

One can never have enough guns or ammo.

Payments I can do when buying: I can do Paypal, I eat any fees or a personal check you hold item until it clears. I do not do bank checks or postal orders. Way too hard for me to get in to do them.

FWIW, that GP100 44 isnt appreciably any smaller or lighter than my Talo Birdshead NM 45ACP. I thought I would like it more than I did, but after shooting it a couple of cylinders full it was , eh.

By the way both .44 Colt and .44 Russian can be shot in a .44 Special revolver. Either will have less velocity and recoil, compared to the Special.

Uberti replica Open Top Colt or Richards Colt or Richards Mason Colt replicas can be purchased in either .44 Special caliber, or in .44 Colt caliber. Open Top, Richards, and Richards Mason were made by Colt before it brought out the .45 Army in .45 Colt caliber. Uberti makes replicas of all three of those.

I shoot an .44 Colt Open Top. Very reasonably priced.

The 44 Magnum will almost certainly be heavier. If you don't need a Magnum why haul around the extra weight.

Make sure brain is engaged BEFORE putting mouth in gear.

Most folks buy magnums to mainly fire standard loads in revolvers. I would never do that myself and buy wrenches that only fit one size nut instead of the 'clever' versatile wonder wrenches.

For me, just for me, and only me.....since the 44Spl can be loaded up to be way more than I need, ever, and more than enough medicine for what I will use it for, ever, no need to buy a mag were I buying a new 44 today.
Thats just me, ymmv.
