Default Ruger New Vaquero vs SAA dimensions

I know the Vaquero vs SAA has been beaten into the ground several times but the differences discussed have mainly been the lockwork of each. What about outside dimensions? Are they exact? If they're off, where & how much? I'm debating over a Vaquero & an Hombre(previous thread).

The original Vaquero was marketed from 1993 until 2005, and was slightly larger than the Colt Single Action Army. The "New Vaquero", produced from 2005 to the present is closer to the dimensions of the Colt Single Action Army. The "New Vaquero" which incorporated the smaller frame is based on Ruger's XR-3 grip frame. The "New Vaquero" pistol is closer to the size of the Colt Single Action Army Revolver of 1873. Also, the New Vaquero will accept two-piece stocks made for the Colt Single Action Army.

The only 357 magnum to me is the Ruger Security Six!!
