(1/3) > >>

Mustang Gregg:
 :P :P  I got the birdshead bug BAD!!! :P :P
Reckon I'm gonna have to order in 'nother pair of .44 mag K-Vaqueros in 4.62".
I got the hankerin' to put a pair of birdshead grip frames on 'em.
Ruger never did make the .44 Vaq's with them gripframes. >:(  Not popular enough, I reckon.
They only done .357's & .45's, far as I know.

Anyone order any RUGER-built birdshead gripframes lately?  I have heard they are awful tight wit' lettin' 'em out.


Ornery Orr:
I heard a rumor that since the New Vaquero has hit the market, that Ruger is going to quit making the Vaquero in .44 & .45.  You know if there's any truth to this?

Big Hext Finnigan:
From what I've read (on the BBs) the 44 mag will continue in the old style Vaquero.  I've not bothered to confirm that..

FYI and FWIW :)

Joyce (AnnieLee):
Howdy. I don't have good news to share.

I just got off the phone with Ruger's Corporate Headquarters.

ALL of the old model Vaqueros have been discontinued. ALL fixed sight revolvers have been discontinued for the new line, which is being produced in .45 and .357 calibers. There are NO plans to produce the New Vaquero in .44.
The woman I spoke to in sales would not allow me to quote her, at the direction of her boss. Her boss is out of town and won't be back until Feb 22.

She said there are some still in stock, but once those are gone, that's it.



Big Hext Finnigan:
Bit by the horse's mouth! ;)
