The old Vaquero large frame is an easy conversion with Ruger large frame blue .41 cyls and barrels around. Just need to start with a 6 1/2" barrel, cut off the front sight screw hole to 5 1/2" length, and install a Vaq front sight blade. $200 approx. in parts and minimal work. And you can offset that cost by selling the original Vaq barrel and cyl, unless you want to keep them.

Unless of course you want a custom Douglas barrel or some such. But as good as the one I did shot, I couldn't justify it. I had to for my 38-40 but there's no Ruger 38-40 barrels floating around.

Had mine back from Gallagher for about a month. He turned it around very quickly. I really love it and the work is top notch. The price was excellent and about half of what I was quoted by another smith mentioned here. This is before I made the grips for it.

Image

When I first bought the gun that I was going to rob the frame from, the local gun shop said he could do it. When I finally forced him to give me back the 44 Mag Vaquero frame that was the donor, this is what it looked like.

Image

You can see that John fixed that and his new roll mark looks factory. With case hardening by Turnbull

Image

Had him turn the barrel to remove the billboard and the cylinder to remove the roll mark.

Image

Shoots very, very well. That is 6 rounds of a 225 hardcast by me.
