    Yes they are I bought them used and they had to be refit to this gun. The grips in the last picture are Dupont Corian.

    Rick O'Shay. Those are some real cool guns. On your top gun I am real curious if the end of your ejection rod has been skeletonized to slip over the cylinder reataining pin. Also is the writting on the top of the barrel one line or two. It looks like your front sight is dove tailed, yes/no. Enclosed is a picture of one I use to own. The front sight is not dove tailed, it is two lines on top of the barrel and the ejector end has been skeletonozed.

    Muddober, pictures are better than words. It is a two line address on top of the barrel. Does the ejector button move over the basepin when ejecting cases on the one you use to own? Nice looking gun, is the hammer blued?

    Went looking for one of these a few yrs back and finally located it.

    This is one gun I always enjoy shooting. And since my carry is a .45ACP I went got a carry holster for the Vaquero, also.

    Now that I've seen those Colts, I guess I'll be adding one or more of those to the collection. Those are sweet!

    Stealthcarry, a 1911 magazine (although, I suppose Glock or Sig, or somebody else's would work) makes a great way to carry spare ammo for a single action 45 ACP. After punching out all the empties, just stick the mag up to the loading gate and thumb 'em in.

    Hi , I am interested in getting a .45 acp cylinder for my .45 LC Ruger Blackhawk, trouble is I did not purchase the convertible model when I bought the revolver. Is it affordable or even possible to buy a .45 acp cylinder for my Blackhawk years after I got the gun? Thanks for your thoughts.

    If you look on the Ruger Forum Classifieds they show up there now and then or you could sign up and do a Want To Buy.
    You really should check your cylinder on the lengths to make sure you get a match but most times more than often they will fit right in. Just make sure you get the correct one for your gun New Model or Old Model.
