Outstanding early Ruger Redhawk .44 Magnum engraved and signed by Marcello Pedini. Made in 1983, serial 500-88433 has a 7.5-inch barrel, brass-beaded blade front sight, adjustable rear sight, tuned trigger and a Leupold M8-2x EER scope with Duplex reticle. ENGRAVING: Themed “The Grand Slam”, Pedini engraved busts of four North American wild sheep – each in 14 carat gold relief and emerging from a field of shaded scroll. The theme continues over the cylinder, along the barrel and straddles the rings. All gold busts are original images created for the client. CONDITION: The bore is strong and bright. Metal finish is at least 97 percent with hints of light rubbing and tarnish (engraving not effected). The optic is clear with strong lens coatings.
