I would be all in on a 41 mag vaquero on the old vaquero frame.

A 41 Special version of the vaquero should be coming home soon. Alan Harton is converting a USFA gun fro 45 Colt to 41 Special with a dovetail front sight. He as asked for the ammo to regulate it so it should be here in the not too distant future.

I sent a 41 mag barrel to John Gallaghr and he is converting a 357 New Vaquero to 41 Mag for me. Pretty easy especially if you have the 41 barrel


How did it turn out? Is it pretty much just properly fitting an original .41 Blackhawk barrel and chambering the .357 cylinder (clearancing the loading cutout if needed)?

Actually the loading trough doesn't even need modification. Even the old model 357 mid-frames, same size as the New Vaqueros, have troughs large enough to convert them to 44 Spl., as thousands have been.

Even easier, then. Thank you. I compared a .45ACP Vaquero to the .357 version and the former looked to have a widened trough, generating wonder about the caliber threshold. The indexing ratchet looked to be a smaller diameter on the .45 cylinder, but it was just the machining to clear case rims that give the impression vs the unmolested construction of the .357 version.

Got the NV .357, take-off 6.5" .41 barrel and sufficient .41 Special brass, pretty far down this road...

kgb,

Yep, you're almost there. Are you cutting the barrel shorter? And are you using a NV blade front sight milled into the 41 barrel?

This USFA in 41 Special just came home today. It is about the same size as the New Vaquero.
