I have a Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 mag with a 10” Barrel. I want to hunt with it. A friend offered me a Osprey Global HD 119 red dot. Anyone have experience with this system? Will it take the recoil of a 44 mag. Thanks
Never heard of Osprey Global but some googling shows the owner is kind of a dick and they're cheapish scopes. I don't wanna be *that guy*, but probably best to stick to known quantities when it comes to optics. You know the saying, buy once cry once.

Honestly only the Trijicon mro in The Burris fastfire 3 R rated for 12 gauge I would think you would look for something of similar quality to handle that 44 mag anything cheap and it's just going to shake it loose
Back in 1996 I mounted a Tasco PDP3 on my Ruger Super Redhawk using Ruger 30mm rings. Back at that time it was a $180 scope. I used it on that revolver for about 8 years to shoot 1,000+ rounds of 44 magnum +P loads of 310gr @ 1,350+ fps along with many regular 44 magnum loads. I never had any problem with that RDS. Later it was mounted on my Remington 870 slug gun for a while...then on a Ruger Mini-14. Now it sits on my Armalite AR-180B where it still works great. What I was told later is that the original ones were made in Japan and were of good quality/durable but later Tasco moved to have all their PDP series including PDP3 made in China...which resulted in lower quality product. I recently found a PDP3 made in Japan on e-bay and I won it for about $70 and it is mounted on one of my AR pistol.
