    Here is another option. http://www.reedercustomguns.com/


    Overall take a hard look at costs. It may be more practical to find a Freedom Arms in the profile you desire. I have handled and shot these things and they are a exceptionally well made. Plus, it adds one to your collection.
    Thanks for the Gary Reeder recommendation. He was in the back of my mind.

    And appreciate the alt suggestion, but I have no interest. Rugers, and older Colts, are my only care abouts. And cost is really not much of an issue in this case.

    It is the same guy, Greg. And thanks for the link. I strongly suspect it's inactive, but I filled out a contact request anyway.

    Thanks for all the replies, guys. And while I appreciate the alt/buy a new Ruger/etc suggestions, I have no interest. What I'm after is a higher end custom revolver...to go with my already existing .357 and .44 Mag custom Blackhawks... and I already have the base gun.

    Whenever y'all get the project going, please post pictures of the before & after Vaquero. You know some of us like that gun porn!

    The Montado and the Birdshead came with the Bisley hammer... if you wanna see what one would look like on your project gun...

    Well...thanks all for the input(s) and I now be first to admit I was wrong head on ths one!

    I originally bought my/this base gun back in April 2001 with the intent of turning it over to Milt for custom work. It was the last SA Ruger I'd purchased and, ignorant of model changes since then, I fixated on finally getting the project done. I did chase down Milt. He was willing to do it if I insisted but brought another voice to why?/look around at current offerings first.

    So I did. If nothing else, Ruger's reversion to the XR3 frame for the Vaquero would have been a deal clincher. Add to that, the availability of 3.75 barrel, birds head grips, cresent head ejector rods, blued, etc variants......

    For a bit over $600 from Buds I got, short of a trigger job, pretty much exactly what I was primarily after. .45 ACP/birdshead/blue/short barrel. Keeping original project gun for occasional .45 Colt use. Also thinkin' I'm about to purchase a Montado in 38/357 shortly. A bit expensive variant, but what the hell/why not.
