I've been to find one in Stainless, 45 LC, 4 5/8 ". They are hard to find in this area. Are they more rare than others?

Yes, they are. They no longer make them, for one, and when they did make them they didn't make a lot of them.

The balance of the one I held in the store one day (as above but .44Mag) was the best feeling SA I've ever picked up--and I thought to myself "Maybe later..."...it's 6+ years later and still waiting to find another!!!

I found one in .357 a while ago,I decided on a Single Six in .32 Mag with Birdshead Grips. I really like the 45 LC, though. Oh well It gives me a "quest" to pursue

Yes, finding that one gun that you want is like the quest for the Holy Grail!

By the way, you can always find you a old Vaquero and then make it into a Bisley! It is not too difficult.

There's one at my local shop. It's beautiful. I just don't want a .45 right now. The one gun I am looking for is no where to be found locally and looks like I'll have to buy online. I hate that because it ends up being a lot more $$.

They also have a SS 5.5" OM Vaquero convertible there. .45ACP/.45 LC. I wanted and still want one, but not until I get my .357 OM Vaquero.

I have found that the harder it is to find THE gun I am looking for the happier I am when I find it. I was looking for a .44 Bisley Vaquero for a year to match one that I had. I went to gun shows and shops and searched the internet. Finally one turned up at a show in Lansing (MI). Now I have two and I intend to shoot them Saturday in a CAS match.

Those guns are beautiful. There was a time when I hated Bisleys. They've grown on me though and I really like the set you have. I may have one before the new year ends. :)

I've got a regular Vaquero, and just got a Montedo, I need a Bisley to round it out. That set is nice !!

I want a Montado too. I think they're cool looking little guns. I'd like to have one in .357. I'm hoping they'll put one out next year. :)

If they do the Montado in .357 I will have a pair you can count on it. I can just see them now. Stainless with some black micarta flat bottom grips. Yeah that would work for me.

Happy New Year!

I found a Case Hardened one, price was right so somehow it followed me home.
Still looking for the stainless, but glad to have the case hardened one nonetheless.

sorry, been out of town.




I kinda wish I had held out for the stainless, but this was the first Bisley Vaquero in 45LC that I've seen in awhile.

A Tale Of Two Bisley Vaqueros

Missouri formerly had a permit to purchase...$10 permit from your county sheriff's office.

I found two stainless 44 BISLEY VAQUEROs in 5.5 inch for $500 NIB at a local shop. Bought one and called back a few days later to get the second. They said it was sold. Another shop had a blue/cc 5.5 inch 44 BISLEYVAQUERO for $375, so I settled for it and went to get the permit. As I was headed back to pick up the blue, I went past the first shop...seems the clerk screwed up and they still had the 5.5 inch stainless, but now at $535. (This was when they announced no more Original Size VAQUEROS.) Scratched my ... er...nose, silently cursed the clerk, and put the second stainless gun in lay-away for two months.

The blue gun is a shade more accurate than either stainless..don't know why because they all three need a trigger job (and are going to ALPHA PRECISION in May.) I've been looking for another, but not much luck so far. There's a 5.5 inch standard VAQUERO in the safe and BISLEY parts aren't that expensive, so ...
