    Will a Blackhawk Cylinder fit a Vaquero and visa versa with out any problems??? Both are .45 LC.

    The reason I am asking I have one each that is blued and one has bad marks on the cylinder and the other does not. I shoot the Vaquero more and would like it to look prettier than the Blackhawk that will be a gun safe queen.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Sometimes I just have to ask the stupid question..

    Thanks
    DT

    Sturm-Ruger would probably argue that each cylinder needs to be fitted, but my experience is that they are pretty much interchangeable. Try it out, and make sure that the timing, etc. is OK and you will probably be good to go, assuming that we are not talking about the "new" Ruger Vaquero.

    it may fit as far as length and diamenter but the timing will probably have to be tuned, unless you get very very lucky

    My wife and I each have a pair of old model Vaqueros for cowboy action shooting. NONE of the cylinders will interchange. They are the exact same models, caliber and serial numbers are within a couple thousand.

    I have a bunch of Blackhawks (10) and it is the same none of the cylinders will interchange .

    Why did I even try

    wanted a fluted cylinder on a short barreled gun . They only come on the 5 1/2 inch 44 mag.
