Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR), the nation's largest firearms manufacturer, is proud to introduce the Super Redhawk Alaskan®, the only compact big bore revolver that is a practical trail gun for dangerous game country.

"With its six-shot cylinder and powerful calibers, the Alaskan provides the confidence necessary when trekking into dangerous game territory," added Killoy.

The Super Redhawk Alaskan® features a six-shot cylinder and is chambered for either .454 Casull and .45 Colt, or .480 Ruger, and is equipped with a Hogue® Monogrip® to help cushion recoil.
