Here's a heavy frame Vaquero 45 Colt/45 ACP convertible that I bought new a few months ago from a dealer that was going out of business. The gun was made in 2002 and is a Davidson's Special Edition. Being a retired gunsmith, I just had to do some enhancements. For openers, I reamed the cylinder throats to .4525" and chamfered the forcing cone to 11 degrees. I modified the pawl for free spin, did a trigger job, adjusted the cylinder for perfect alignment, and made an extended hammer plunger to prevent a cylinder turn line. It's a great shooter but now I need to do something with that shiny front sight.

Beautiful revolver Iowegan. I agree the .45 convertibles are more accurate. However, if one considered the modest cost of both the 357/9 and the 45/45 convertibles in blued, most shooters can have one of each.

I favor stainless. I have to find one like yours. Thanks for sharing!

Iowegan...remember when Ruger made a stainless Blackhawk in 357/9. Twenty years ago, the prices were $700+ for those convertibles.
