I now have a new Vaquero .45 Colt Birds Head in 3.75 inch. Did remove reverse pall stop and added extra heavy duty base pin spring. Gun feels great and I will take it apart and check for burrs and maybe a little polishing of parts. But it is smooth out of the box. Thinking about conceal carry. I have been shooting Cowboy Action for12 years and can shoot with both hands as in gunfighter style. Did take a regional title a few years back. So out to back yard with timer. So drawing from appendix holster 3 -6 rounds reading I got 3.6, 3.7 and 3.9 seconds on each test at 10 feet using factory 230gr .45 Colt hollow points. All holes where within 3 inch groups to 1 inch left of center(point of aim). Things like this happen to me when I am in lock down over virus. So please give me your 2c worth.
