Hello,

I came across a used 45LC colored case hardened Vaquero for $250. It appears to be in pretty much excellent shape. I had read that these had the tendency to rust easily since they weren't actually "case hardened" but treated to look like it, and Ruger discontinued it shortly after because of the rust issue. It does have a Bisley grip. I was thinking that the price wasn't too bad, and might look into having it blued, since the color hardening will eventually fade with use. apparently the previous owner just didn't use it enough.

Anyway, your thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated, and especially from anybody that has one or had one at some time.

Thank-you all very much.

I agree with all those above, GO BACK AND BUY IT!

If you want the color case hardened look (and done CORRECTLY) send the frame to Turnbull Manufacturing.
They do beautiful work and their prices are reasonable. I plan on sending the frame for my single six to them myself!
