44 Special Flat top on order, a Vaquero and Single Six coming next!
I had that sight installed...(bad eyes these days) and I love the looks of the old school black grips.
Absolutely! They feel great in the hand.
Ruger Vaquero 44 Mag 7.5 inch glossy stainless, buffalo horn grips by Ajax.
I used to have a Blackhawk Old Model .357 with the ~7" barrel that I used to take on hunting trips. Great gun, but it suffered from my ownership of too many other more-portable wheel guns in the same caliber, so I traded it for a succession of other pistols and revolvers - all of which I've come to regret over the years. Wish I'd kept that old gem...
Currently, I still have my old Single-Six, minus the matched .22 magnum cylinder that was stolen during a break-in at my home a few years ago. I almost never used that cylinder, but it was nice to have, just the same.
My current favorite is my Ruger Vaquero Bisley 4 3/4" .44 mag in polished stainless. It's a bear to shoot with full-power loads, but a sweetheart with the .44 specials I routinely carry in it.
I have no photos of either revolver, so perhaps I should see about remedying that issue...
OK. Here's a pic of some of my Ruger handguns
Ruger has never let me down.
Ruger Single Six
Wife's S&W Kit Gun below Ruger
Got 5 Ruger single action revolvers, but this old single six has been with and done more with and for me than all the others put together
I have 5 right and love them all!
My best ever SA triggers can be found in many of my S&W revolvers now - far better - no creep, very light, and consistent. And - when you need to - you can squeeze the trigger for DA shooting!
Still, that SBH I customized was fun - especially with .44 Russians and Specials. Not much of a picture - and, no, I couldn't make the .458 Lott fit...
You want lunch? The 4 on the LEFT are elephant stoppers: 600 grain Barnes solids, at 2150 fps, in .510 Van Horn. Next is a 50-110 we borrowed from a revolver, then .50 Alaskan,and I think the last one is the .500 Linebaugh short.
I do have a single six, but haven't taken pictures...upper right: .458 Lott. Nice warm up for the .510 Van Horn.
