The Ruger Vaquero revolvers have the look, size and feel of the original Old West Single-Action revolvers. They have the traditional western-style, hand-filling grip that has long been acknowledged as one of the most comfortable and natural pointing of any grip style. The patented reverse indexing pawl allows for easier loading and unloading, while the traditional beveled cylinder simplifies holstering. Patented transfer bar mechanism and loading gate interlock provide an unparalleled measure of security against accidental discharge. The handsome, larger crescent-shaped ejector rod head boasts traditional form, perfect for every cowboy or cowgirl.
