Ruger Vaquero in 357

Found an older Ruger Vaquero in .357. 43/4 barrel case hardened/blued. Only thing I see is the typical scratch line on the cylinder. Anyone have any experience with these? I have a ton of 38 brass and some 357 but no 38. Dad borrowed my old model 19 and haven't seen it since . I know they are somewhat popular but wanted to get y'all experience with them. Thanks.

Ruger's are very well built. If the price is right, you can't go wrong. I found them on GB from $400 used up to $550 new.

Another single action option is the Uberti.

Vaqueros seem to have the same internal works as the single action Blackhawks. Is there anydifference except the outward appearance?

Post the price and seller information.

I'm sure somebody here will be glad to let you if it was a good deal or not.

The Original Vaqueros were built on the heavier SBH frames unlike the new Vaqs that are on smaller, lighter frames to free more like a Colt SAA and appease the CAS crowd.

Don't forget, any Ruger has a lifetime warranty from Ruger and even if something is not covered, Ruger offers low cost factory repairs.

He wants $440 for it @ Winks in Princess Anne. It has some age to it. I will have to get the serial number on it today and see if I can look the age of it up.
