I have always been a fan of Rugers. When I recently got into CAS, my first cowboy gun had to be a Ruger. I would be proud to be a RAT.

Well folks, it seems as if I have degenerated from being the sixhundred and first RAT to being an honest to filthyest Dirty RAT.
I just came home from an auction here in my town and bought myself a new blued Old Army.
I know I shouldn't gloat and all, but I think a never fired Old Army for $275 is worth crowing about.
So what needs to be done to "dirty up" my listing in the roster?
What, maybe I gotta load this here Ruger and liight her off to start this dirtying up process....

I just registered a few minutes ago.  I  scrolled through all the different sections and couldn't figure out where I should introduce myself and to start asking questions but then I noticed the "RAT" section and this seems like the appropriate starting point.

I registered after Googling for "single action revolver forums" because I'm interesed in getting a gun or two in .45 Colt and have questions.  Since I still have the stainless Ruger GP100 .357 Magnum I bought 15 or 20 years ago and the stainless
Ruger P97 .45 Automatic I bought about 10 years ago I figure I belong here.  I should quickly add that of the many different guns I've handled and fired and purchased over the years .....Rugers are still the best bang for the buck in my biased and humble opinion.

Anyway, having recently gotten interested in the cowboy action shooting sport, I 've spent the past 4 or 5 weeks looking at .45 Colt clones from Uberti /Cimarron and USAF and EAA, etc. and decided I wanted a nickel plated .45 Colt in 5.5 inch.  I don't know why but I wasn't really looking at Ruger until it suddenly hit me today that Rugers don't cost any more than these other clones and fact is Rugers are way ahead of these others in quality and safety features.....features that I've been accustomed to in my current Rugers.

So, now I'm pretty certain I want a "New Vaquero" in stainless, 5.5 inch, .45 Colt.  It wasn't until today I stumbled across a comparison between the new and old Vaquero and that sold me.  The polished stainless looks so much like nickel that I'm really happy with it's look too.

This long winded intro brings me to a question.  I see on the Ruger Web site that they have a SASS version of the guns I want.  The only difference is that these are sold in pairs for nearly 1600 bucks, they have the SASS logo on the grips and the hammers aren't as tall as on the regular gun.  They look very similar to Bisley hammers which I've never been fond of.  Is there any particular advantage to having this lower stumpy looking hammer?

Thanks,

VR

PS  I could get two non SASS versions which are identical in every way accept for the stumpy hammers and the goofy looking SASS logos for 5 or 6 hundred less......seems crazy to me to pay 600 more for funny looking hammers....what am I missing?

Firstly, the SASS logo is not goofy and since you have obviously not shot a SASS Ruger with a Montado Hammer you should not pass judgement on these fine cowboy guns. Secondly Bisley's are an easy shootin Six if you have short thumbs or shoot one handed.
And, pairs of Ruger SASS Vaqueros don't sell for 1600 bucks anyway so you should expect to be in the 1000 range. I shoot Bisley's in 357 & 45 and single six Bird Heads in 32 but i have not found any other of my fellow cowboy's iron's to be sub standard or any of their grip logos to be goofy.

Well, thanks for the warm welcome.....I think.  I don't know who managed to hack my post and express that stupid opinion about the SASS logo being goofy.  Heck....that's absurd....it's obviously one of the finest looking logos I ever saw. 

I'm 63 years old and sometimes wonder if I'm going soft and senile.  At least I can thank God I don't have short thumbs or any other short parts.....like those people who need stumpy hammers on their shoot'n irons..... ;)

My OMV cost 500 used.  The fresh off the line NMV was only 450.  I chose the old one but that is because everyone has their own preference.  I have big hands so it fits like a glove for me.  That's me, some may prefer thinner grips and shorter hammers, that is them.  When you purchase an extension of your hand do what feels right. 

And welcome Mr. Fingers.  I really don't have an opinion on the logo but I do love Rugers.

Thanks LT.  I really should handle the new and the old, with both style hammers, before I decide.

Thanks,

Welcome to the RATS 4Fingers

I myself agree also:

My OMV cost 500 used.  The fresh off the line NMV was only 450.  I chose the old one but that is because everyone has their own preference.  I have big hands so it fits like a glove for me.  That's me, some may prefer thinner grips and shorter hammers, that is them.  When you purchase an extension of your hand do what feels right.  

And welcome Mr. Fingers.  I really don't have an opinion on the logo but I do love Rugers.

The Ruger SASS Six-shooters are a package of desirable features coveted by many SASS shooters developed over the history of SASS some of which you have noticed.  I have opined somewheres 'round here that I'm a fan of this package if it was in the OLD MODEL 'cause the NM feels like a pocket pistol in my hands and it aint right for me....   :D

Long Hunter has a great deal on the SASS pair with all the work'ns done on 'em and they're in 45LC now!  I'll recheck his sight and post here in modification fur ya!

You are on the RATS Roll. 
I cannot put your handle in bold from this computer. 
There is a glitch in the system on some computers that I have tried. 
But I will get to it when possible.
