they make Super Blackhawks already tuned? kinda like the performance shop thing
Should I be concerned about improper throat size on the 44 Vaquero?
Exactly! The 5.5 Bisley Vaquero is a rather rare bird and can be used in traditional Cowboy Competition class with .44 special. I can't think of a better traditional belt gun for all around woods use if you work up a ..44 mag load that hits to the sights. The Bisley grip really takes recoil BTW.Another factor to consider, the large frame Bisley Vaquero isn't made any more. The .41 Blackhawk is still catalogued.
Yep, adjustable sights all the way. In a heavy magnum revolver, the ability to easily zero the gun for any of the caliber's bullet weights is critical in my experience. While it's possible to torque the bbl. around or file the rear notch to correct windage problems, it's far harder to lengthen the front sight for a gun that shoots low. A royal PITA to my way of thinking.the Vaquero if I could be sure it shot to the sights. Fixed sighted SAAs always seem to be a crapshoot in that regard.
I have one just like it. Its a blast.Update:
I appreciate all of the input from the board, and I made a decision.
I went with a 45 Colt/45 ACP 4.62 barrel. Blackhawk.
I am already heavily invested in both of these cartridges as a hand loader so I found one for a similar price as the other 2 options and went for it.
Will post the proof (pics) when I receive the new gun.
Happy day today!
Go with the 41 just because they will soon go like the Dodo bird. Get dies and brass. You can make anything else if you have to..Vaquero Bisley in 44 Mag 5.5 inch or Blackhawk in 41 Mag 4.6 inch barrel.
Same condition and same price.
Yes I will be handloading for either.
Help me out here folks, I can't decide.
I could buy both, but I don't want to right now because neither was on my radar. I have other guns I want first.
