Chucked it in the press and used 100-220 grit paper with a file for a backer. Took about forty minutes. The "scroll work" is pretty shallow. I really like the unfluted cylinder and the clean look without the scroll. Trying to make it look like a Freedom Arms, since I can't afford one of those.
I believe this is the Acusport run which is not a regular Ruger production model. The grip frame and ejector housing are stainless as well so she is pretty hefty, but that along with the Bisley grip certainly helped tame the loads I fired last night.
I just need to find a decent cartridge belt that holds 6-12 rounds that is 2"-2 1/4" wide. The holster came from El Paso Saddlery and fits like a glove. I had heard horror stories about them but figured I'd chance it since they could make exactly what I wanted. I had the holster in less than ten days even though the stated turn around time was 4-6 weeks. I entered 5 1/2" Bisley on the order form and actually got a phone call asking if it was a Vaquero or Blackhawk since the sights are different. VERY pleased with the work and the service.
