The first gun is a Ruger Bisley Vaquero, 5 1/2 inch 45 Colt. The other is a 5 1/2 inch Blackhawk in 45 Colt. This is the "before" picture. I am going to swap the grip frames, hammers and triggers. I should end up with a Ruger Vaquero and a Bisley Blackhawk. Wish me luck.
Since posting the "Before" picture I got the swap done… with a little difficulty.
The other picture is a target shot with my Ruger Super Redhawk 454 Casull. I had fully intended to trade this gun off. The gun shop I frequent has an indoor range so I decided to shoot the 20 rounds I had left. They consisted of a 255 grain LSWC Magnus bullet, 25.0 grains of 2400 powder and Winchester rifle primers. This target is 25 yards off the bench. This is all 20 shots. Had to have that flyer. But I kept the gun!
