While I agree that the DA pull is very smooth on a Redhawk, it uses the same type lockwork as the Security Six series. In fact the redhawks use 1 spring for mainspring and trigger return. It's the same spring. I have a old .41 magnum myself and when polished up with a Wolff spring kit the DA pull is VERY light & smooth.

Also, a G100 .357 Mag.
I think if they made Super Redhawk in a shorter barrel like 4" I buy one. They have a separate spring for trigger and hammer, which might make the trigger pull a little smoother in dble action mode.
If you have concerns about any batch of any particular manufacturer's batch of a model might have had an issue, contact their support and give them the serial number.

I have owned a .44 magnum Super Redhawk 7.5" for over 20 years and can say I have complete faith in the barrel. I have put some really heavy loads through mine with no problems.
