you might want to check out Colt's New Frontier which is back in production (with modern steels) after being introduced in 1890. It has adjustable sights. This is a Vaquero-type - not for big loads. Conversely, if you think you are into big loads, e.g. 44mag and 45LC+P, by all means get a Blackhawk -- you will really appreciate the recoil absorbing benfits of 50+ oz of gun weight (vs. 40oz for Vaquero).
