Look again. It's a Ruger Old vaquero. I traded it for the Cattleman on the bottom which was later stolen. I still have the one with stag grips.

The old Vaq is a larger frame capable of handling Ruger only loads. The one in the pic is a .44 mag. The new Vaq is close to the same size as a Colt SAA and won't handle hot loads. It still has the screwed up Ruger action tho.(my opinion)

i think mine is one of the first with the new action..... and its a .45 long colt. i wish it was a .44, it would be a nice companion for my .44 carbine.

nice one Reinhard!!!! the stevens is one i plan to keep. its not pristine, but its fun to take out every once in a while.

oh yeah i just received a pm from a guy who sells pinfire cartridges. i told him he should post the info here. also he told me the cartridge with the 9mm was made by Braun & Bloem. seems to have tons of info on pinfire cartridges.

yeah i want to really focus on collecting WWII era guns. i really would like a IH M1 Garand (would look great in my IH pickup or scout, yep im one of those guys!) and a late 40's early 50's 1911 (my grampa was in korea, and it would be neat to have the guns he used in the war.)
