From my other post on my 2005 New Vaquero...
My NV has such nice hammer pull feeling lighter than my new .44 NM BH Flattop.
Trigger pull of the NV is a bit more crisp without creep.
Here is the picture of the 2005 NV spring package.

Here is the Flattop spring package which is factory Ruger.

Now I know the NV has the trigger lock but can you determine if that is the stock
New Vaquero hammer spring?
To me it looks like a lighter spring and I notice when moving both springs around,side to side,
the NV spring moves and flexes easier. Both the trigger springs measure .044 wire diameter.

Could it just be the difference in hammer style that makes the NV feel easier to cock?
For a factory Ruger that 2005 NV is sure sweet during cocking and trigger release!
Now I run both with one leg of trigger spring off the pin.

Both guns have 24 coil springs. The difference is the length of the hammer spurs; notice how much longer the NV hammer spur is. The hammer was designed specifically for easier cocking in SASS competition and provides more leverage than the standard hammers.

The NV hammer is interchangeable wth the New Flattop hammer and even with your Bisley hammer if you want to do that. You can also cut the Bisley hammer spur and add length to it by welding.

Or cut a coil or two off the flattop spring or try a custom spring.

I’ve notice the same between my NV and FT.
I can definitely feel the hand needs more leverage to turn the cylinder.
