I handled a Stampede at the Shot Show in January and must admit that it felt really good and had the 'clicks'...
I have both a New Vaquero and original Vaquero - both in 45LC.
I've also got a stainless Ruger Blackhawk Flattop in 45LC/45ACP.
Love all three and especially like the New Vaquero.
It has fixed sights, but at 20yds I can easily shoot out the bullseye on targets and it shoots EXACTLY to point of aim.
Even though I shoot Rugers, I still do the load one, skip one, load four, cock and drop the hammer on the empty chamber.
Try them both at your local range or at least handle them in a store.
To that point:
I cannot buy any SAA type revolver in .357/.38Spl. The bore is too small and the barrel too thick. The balance feels very forward biased.
Whether with a 4 3/8"bbl or the 5 1/2"bbl, the 45LC feels perfect to me.
So, definitely handle them and see what you like best then BUY IT!
