I love "old west" guns...always have!  For years, I have owned and used many different types of Italian-built Colt clones, Remington clones and S&W clones...all really neat-looking pistols!  However, almost all were "cursed" with soft metal in them...the screws would get "buggered" up even using proper gunsmithing screwdrivers of the correct size.  And I always felt like they needed to be "babied" much more than my other firearms.  I am not "hacking" the replicas out there...they are fine firearms in their own right, but they do have their inherent problems. Maybe it's part of growing older, but I tired of this.  So, I am back to using Rugers once more.  I don't have to worry about soft screws, or having to "baby" these fine revolvers!

I have a couple of the Lipsey's New Vaqueros in .44 Special, one with a 3 3/4" barrel and the other with a 4 5/8" barrel in .44 Special.  And they are fine revolvers indeed!  I know they will outlast me, and still be fine "shootin' irons!"

Let's just say I am quite happy to be back with the rest of the RATS clan once more!

Best Regards,
Jake

Replaced the New Vaquero hammers with ones from the original Vaquero.  I like the way they look and feel.
