Just sending off my Vaquero parts today to Bowen to have a 41 Vaquero made. Super excited. This has been sitting in my safe for years, since the last smith botched it.

Hillary was defeated, and we've landed rovers on Mars!!!

Could this be the year for a .41 mid frame Vaquero?

Groo here
I have 2...
Andy Horvath made them from a 357 Mondago and a 357 Bisley , both SS.
The cylinders are able to take any factory length bullet [ 1.60in]
and they shoot like a house a-fire........
The thing is,, why try to shoot super heavy bullets [260=295]
when normal [210 to 230] punch holes like a drillpress????
Also the lighter guns KicK some.

Dang, I have enough trouble hanging on to a OM .41 Mag on the old large frame. Would not begin to try on a medium frame :shock: .....but then I've reached the age where the only thing that heavy recoil does is make my hands sore :roll:

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.
