For me, the choice would be a no brainer if choosing between the two caliber wise. Both are built on the 'large' frame....

Since you don't reload (.45 Colt is a reloaders cartridge), the .44 original Vaquero may be the ticket shooting either .44Spec or .44Mag. The only downside is it is a fixed sight, so realize the limitation there, On the other hand they don't make it anymore either and you would have a 'cowboy' gun . Everyone needs at least one fixed sight revolver....

Really it comes down to what 'you' want. Buy both if it really a hard decision .
A clinger. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Single Action .45 Colt (Sometimes improperly referred to by its alias as the .45 'Long' Colt or .45LC). Don't leave home without it. Ok.... the .44Spec is growing on me ... but the .45 Colt is still king.
