Nope.


My first thought was the same on the gold trigger and hammer, but it's growing on me. At least it doesn't have some chintzy engraving. They can be had for $875 OTD in Phoenix. Strange -- yesterday Gun Genie stated that only 2 were available, today there are 45 available.

I'd have hammer and trigger stripped and CCH.

I stand corrected.
The picture is large on my screen, and I didn't move it to see the end of the ERH. Definitely NOT a shadow. My mistake.

BUT,,, I know Bobby Tyler,, and EVERY gun I've handled that he did was VERY nice. Buy with confidence. He does good work,, and I'd say someone put this together for the photo & didn't give it the "final" once over.

I thought I might chime in and drop my two cents worth. We were the contractor on the Color Case Work. Color Case is harder to photograph than an ADD toddler. It’s receiver was done one at a time in our furnace. I was extremely pleased with this batch overall and intend on buying one myself.
As far as the ejector rod housing I assume it possibly could’ve not been tightened down quite tight enough or possibly vibrated loose in transit. I have not seen any quality control issues on my end.
I think this will be a pretty neat run and from what I’ve heard it’s pretty limited availability. Thanks again Bobby

It is 500 according to Davidson’s and they are in stock at GOG...Davidson’s.

List price is listed at $999.00, but retail (actual) price suggests List price is higher.

The Talo advertising pics as seen above show the gun with laminate grips, but all of the new ones on Gunbroker show it with solid wood. I think the laminated grips look better.

Well, I picked up the gun today. Very happy with the Case Coloring, not so much the grips. They seem to be made from the same wood as the stock on a 10/22, probably stained birch. I have a set of Ruger Rosewood laminates on order.

But how was the fit of the ERH & the workmanship of the gun?

Fit and finish are very good. Ejector housing is tight to the barrel.

I decided to put Micarta grips on the gun. The light tan originals looked not so good.

Now, looking at the gun in better light, I see this one has the gap as well. The screw is tight. I'm guessing they will all be like that.

Looks like others have had the same problem with Vaqueros as far back as 2008, and there does not appear to be a fix.
