Hi,what is the difference between rugers SA
like the Vaquero against the Bisley,are they both the same strength.Also are cyls long enough for long bullets
with 45LC.Iwank to get one 4 5/8 barrel.
Would a redhawk be stronger???
Thanks for your help
The Blackhawk family includes the Vaquero, Bisley Vaquero, Super Blackhawk, Bisley, and the plain old Blackhawk. All are equal in strength. The Vaquero's have fixed sights, Bisley, Blackhawk, and Super Blackhawk all have adjustable sights. The Bisley models have a longer grip thats angled differently along with a different hammer and trigger. These options make the gun easier for some people to shoot. The Super Blackhawk was once the only version offered in 44 magnum, but thats another story. All these guns give you plenty of choices. The factory cylinders will only accept the .450 nose to crimp bullets.
Now the Redhawk. The strength of this gun makes a punk out of the already strong Blackhawk. It will accept the .500 nose to crimp bullets and nip at the heels of the 5 shot 45 Colt conversion loads. If horsepower is what you need, the Redhawk is the gun for you.
