New Vaquero .44 Magnum
« on: February 22, 2018, 02:23:55 pm »
So, I just got a Vaquero in .44 Mag.  However, when I looked at the frame, it says "Ruger New Vaquero," with ".44 Magnum" beneath it.  I didn't think any of the New Vaqueros got made in .44 Mag, but Nightcrawler thinks it's probably a Talo Distributors exclusive.  Only .44 Vaquero on the Talo site is the new birdshead they came out with a year or two ago.

Anybody know anything about the Talo exclusive plow handle?  Frame size (I ordered a set of Altamont grips, but for the Vaquero/Blackhawk, not the New Vaquero), load limits, etc?

    It’s an exclusive and is the same frame as the 45 LC New Vaquero when I handled both in the local store. I can’t remember which distributor however. The loads would need to be mild as a result.
