I was considering the purchase of Talo's case hardened Vaquero, but the Talo photo seems to show a gap between barrel and ejector housing. I can't live with that.

Looks more like a shadow in the photography to me. Same as around the grips & other areas. Look at where the ERH meets the frame. Out in front, exposed to light,, you can see the taper shadow disappear.

Its a Ruger production revolver. Not a custom-fitted gun. Looks to be within build spec.

Looks to me like maybe the ejector rod housing screw needs to be tightened down?

Run of the mill gun? The gun has to be stripped down, all the way plumb, to case harden the frame, or at least impart that coloring, then re-assembled. Should look better that that.

I’ve owned many Ruger revolvers and none had a large gap between barrel and ejector. The gun in the photo is not within spec.

Looks like the ERH screw wasn’t tightened down, perhaps at the factory or afterwards....wouldn’t stop me from buying one unless I didn’t own a screwdriver...

Yeah, I’ll probably go ahead and get it. The Bobby Tyler color case looks good.

That's Tyler CCH? Looks good on the lower front of the frame, forward of the cylinder. The rest almost looks like the old chemical applied stuff that faded.

In any event, sure would've tripped my trigger if it was in .41 magnum. Looks to be another .357 vaquero (Ho hum)
:evil:

Bob is correct all that needs is the screw snugged up tight.

I’m surprised they used a photo with a loose screw to advertise their product.
