Let's see...you traded what is essentially a hi-cap .22magnum for a pair of .357 SA revolvers, and good ones at that.
Leaving aside monetary concerns, and the current panic bubble prices, I say you got the better deal.
Not terribly clear from your post, but ordered guns, consecutive ser#s, those would have to be New Vaqueros
, right? Nice guns, but not the same as Vaqueros. I have a pair of original
Vaqueros, SS, 4 5/8", .45 Colt, as well as a 5.5" .45Colt New Vaquero.
There is a slight difference in size, but, being a new model Blackhawk fan, I'm fine with the original Vaquero. I'm not crazy about my NewVaquero, (mostly the grips), but it seems.....small.
