Ruger Single Actions.. Top to bottom:
1. Old Vaquero, circa 1997 in .45 Colt. Ruger used what looks like a painted on "Case Color Hardening." For future reference for other manufacturers, this will always be a hard pass. NO. BAD. NO.
2. Ruger Super Blackhawk Bisley, Stainless, in .454 Casull Magnum. I love this one.. She's a thumper.
3. Ruger New Model Blackhawk, blued, in .45 Colt. This one has Altamont Eagle stocks in dark gray.
Ruger was known for their lower prices but still providing sound functional firearms. I am poor, this matters. Using castings instead of forgings, they became very well known for their metal casting abilities. Other cost cutting measures, such as the painted case hardening "look" I am sure manages to keep prices down, or used to. My previous statement saying "NO" stands. But it certainly helps the wallet. Just kills the eyes. Nowadays it seems the prices are way higher. They are tough guns though. The newer Vaquero models are smaller, and reportedly not as strong as the larger older models that used the Blackhawk frame. If you like shooting the super heavy ammo, do your research, learn and be kind to the guns. They are innocent children. Dont abuse them, and don't blow your hands off.
