BNV-453, Model 0528 Original Vaquero with case color frame in 45 Colt.
Beautiful, Wave. Great photos too. Does this one make number 3 bird's head? (Number 4 counting your new Shopkeeper)?

Had this one stored; pulled it out today. Guess you could say it is the Boars Head's baby brother.

NAA Mini SA; 22 LR; 5 shot cylinder; 1 1/8" barrel; Holster by Milt Sparks.








Ounce for ounce; this little birdshead packs a good wallop.:)

Cheers

Ummm...better to not count these things as Mrs. Waveform doesn't need to know. (And your counting is not so good as it is....) :D

Love it! Looks like fun. From what I've read the Birdshead grip evolved from small pocket pistols (derringer, etc.) just like that.

Ah. I can relate to that. My lips are sealed. :)

Oh wow! I think I need to use all 4 fingers AND my thumb. But, mums the word. :D

NVBH-453A, Model 05154 New Vaquero 45ACP in blue
Oh man. This one could start a whole new run on Ruger Bird's Head Vaqueros.

Beautiful! Superb photos of it too. They really capture the beautiful lines of this little gem. And, in blue, it really pops.

Here's the flip side of the same Vaquero. Can't believe this gun was bought for $540.00 (Jaw dropping...) Yeah.. Where was *I* that day??
$540? Are you kidding me?!?! I would be happy to pay that for one without the nice engraving. What a deal!!

I've always heard and assumed the same thing regarding BH grip. It's a little tricky to shoot; got a pretty nasty powder burn on my right index finger while experimenting with different ways to cock, grip and fire. :eek:
