I had a couple of the older models in .44 magnum and I hated to part with them. I've also had a number of Blackhawks.
The Vaquero doesn't have a rear sight, it has a channel along the top strap, whereas the Blackhawk has an adjustable rear sight. So, depending on what you want to use it for, that may affect your decision.
If you want a stout single action revolver, either one is a top notch revolver.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
