For those of you who have one - what are your impressions of the Vaquero Birdshead 45 ACP? I have been looking at the Talo stainless. Any thoughts?
Seems about 560-575, KY gun Co has both 45 ACP and 45 Colt in stock right now in blue.Darn it I just saved up & sold a rifle to buy my SP101 .327 3 inch barreled revolver love it!!! Then I see your Talo Birdshead Ruger Vaquero .45 acp's........!!!!oh Crap Now I need to save and get me one. For some reason now I want a blued one how much do these little beauties retail for?? Wow thx for sharing pix!!!
I love my stainless, but I want a blue one that I will also put grips on. My advice is to just decide which one you like most right now and get the other one later. That way even if you never get another one you will have still made the right choice.I'm torn between the blued steel or Stainless. I have two blackhawks that are blued and a Stainless Bisley. I just can't make up my mind.
The other hurdle is Colt vs. ACP. The Colt is my favorite caliber but with the short ejector rod not fully ejecting the spent casings it's kind of off putting. The other problem is the new vaquero doesn't hold up to Ruger only loads and that worries me since all my Blackhawks will handle them as well as my carbine. So that hurdle took some time but I figured it out. now I just have to decide on blued or stainless.
