For decades, Ruger fans have been waiting for a five shot large caliber single action revolver. Introducing the Ruger 480.

Lipsey’s now brings you two options to accommodate the big bore single action revolver enthusiast. Ruger developed the 480 Ruger cartridge for the large Super Redhawk platform. Sixgunners have longed for an easier carrying single action version that can push 425 grain bullets at over 1200 feet per second.
