The Ruger® Vaquero® Single-Action Revolver incorporates the classic lines and inherent strengths of the US military service revolver used in the late 1800s with modern steel and manufacturing techniques, to make one of the safest and most rugged sidearms available. The Vaquero is built on a robust, all-steel frame made to withstand modern magnum cartridges, and uses all coil springs in the mechanism that retain their power for ultra-durability (instead of leaf-springs). Ruger's transfer bar ignition system provides an unparalleled measure of security against accidental discharge, allowing the shooter to carry the revolver safely with all 6 chambers loaded. The Vaquero's traditional western-style, all-steel grip frame, like the pre-1962 Ruger Blackhawk® XR-3 grip, is renown for being one of the most natural pointing grips ever designed, enabling shooters to instinctively draw and shoot, as well as stand and take aim. The Vaquero's sights will never get knocked out of alignment or interfere with drawing the weapon from a holster. The rear sight notch is milled into the solid topstrap, and the low profile front sight is fixed solidly to the barrel. The Vaquero features a steel ejector rod housing, and a crescent-shaped ejector rod head that's traditional in form and practical in use. A reverse indexing prawl facilitates loading and unloading by allowing the shooter to backup when turning the cylinder. The Ruger Vaquero Single-Action Revolver is a favorite sidearm for competing in Cowboy Action Shooting events, as well as for carrying while engaged in most any activity in the rugged outdoors.
