Are those the only cartridges it is chambered for? No .44 mag? No .44-40?

Well, since picturing you as a cowboy gives me the willies, I hope you pick .357!

Vaqueros do not come in .44magnum calibers.

They certainly used to. I used to own a Bisley Vaquero in .44 mag.

They come in both .45 Colt and .357 Magnum. No .44 Spl or otherwise.
Isn't .357 Mag considered a magnum?

The new models are not as beefy and strong as the older ones. They are "truer" Colt clones now. They do come in .357mag, as we noted. I just forgot to put the ".44" in front of magnum in my first post.

It is a new Bisley variant of the Colt-sized New Vaquero, not the original large frame Vaquero which was offered in .357, .44Mag and .45Colt.

I need one in .357 to have converted to .44Spl with pre-war S&W style adjustable sights added. Like I did with this large frame .45Colt cut back to 4½".

CraigC,

That gun of yours was the first thing I thought of when I saw these on the website.

No, unfortunately, I am always shaped like this.

When in "cowboy drag", you would be surprised how many SASS people hate it when I call it that, it can be called any of those things.

I really need to block CraigC, every time I see a handgun of his is just depresses me. Especially that Flat Top .44 Special.

Sheesh fellas; what's so surprising about the cowboy getup?

Y'all from New York City or sumpthin'?

Around these parts, he wouldn't get a second glance, even packin' the handgun. Of course, not everyone dresses that way, but some do. Oh, did I mention I live about 20 miles from Tombstone?

I usually wear blue jeans, a western shirt, and a straw hat. Might even wear a bandana if the wind's blowing. I usually open carry, but not always.

Clearly there you are a Sheriff, not a cowboy. Not that that's a better image in my head but it is different, possibly worse now that I see it.

CraigC,

I never get tired of looking at the gun pictured above. The New Vaquero Bisley set up like you described (S&W Adj Rear, .44 Spcl Conv) would be a perfect "packin' pistol".

When I saw the pic of the Vaquero, a flash of memory hit me. I had something that looked like that when I was 8. The sideplate hinged outward and the roll of caps fit inside.


j/k, I think it's purty.....
