The Ruger Vaquero is a six-shot single-action revolver that has been in production since 1993. Ruger built the Ruger Vaquero based on the .357 Magnum New Model Ruger Blackhawk frame that was introduced in 1973. The Ruger Vaquero was designed to meet the increased demand for quality modern firearms that can be used in the sport of cowboy action shooting.
All Ruger Vaquero models that are chambered for the .357 Magnum cartridge also accept factory .38 Special cartridges. Ruger Vaquero revolvers are available with fixed sights and wood, hard rubber, simulated ivory, or black Micarta grips. The first version of the Ruger Vaquero was a 7.5 inch (190mm) barreled revolver chambered in .45 Colt with a simulated color case-hardened frame and a blue barrel, grip frame, and cylinder. Later models feature a 5.5 inch (140mm) barrel or a 4? inch (120mm) barrel. The Ruger Vaquero does not require the hammer to be half-cocked for loading and unloading. This revolver uses a transfer bar mechanism that prevents the cartridge under the hammer from being fired without the trigger being pulled.
