Really feel the urge to get a new revolver this year, Been thinking about my current collection and I've wanted to get a 45 LC caliber one but it doesnt feel right that I'd have 3 cartridge revolvers of all different calibers. So I think getting a .38 to match with my Ruger Vaquero would be ideal. The model I for sure want is a Richard-Mason. I am a huge fan of the Colt percussion revolver design, especially the 1851. It would go excellent with my other '51s. The only downside is that it's 38 Special, only. My Ruger Vaquero is .357 Magnum, which of course you can fire 38 special through. However it just feels restricting that I cant fire the same cases that I usually fire in my Ruger Vaquero. I've looked into a way to convert the cylinder to fit the 357 mag cases (since I reload it's just a simple matter of making special weaker loads to fire in the Cimarron, then marking the hotter loads 'Ruger ONLY' ). But of course the problem of the projectiles jutting too far causing restriction of the cylinder turning is another issue. I understand the open-frame design limits the revolvers integrity to handle the hotter 357 Mag pressures, so thats why you never see any Open-frame revolver on the market that is chambered for 357 Mag but I still almost wish Cimarron would make this revolver for .357 Magnum. I think it would be really useful. This just boils down to the question, is the Richard-Mason chambered for just .38 Special really worth it? She's a pretty gal revolver, but is of course is limited to plinking purposes. Or collection of small game. If another ammo shortage happens again, I want to be able to use my same pool of 38/357 Mag cases for both guns and not have to restrict one collection of cases for the other.
