  1. I think you are looking for the 510- series on the serial number, for the Ruger New Model Vaquero in 357Mag with the color case hardening frame. At least the ones that I have had and still have, are in that range.


    They are kinda hard to find, but crop up once in a while, usually in a gun auction site or gunbroker/gunsamerica websites. I just sold a pair recently, so they can be found. Price ranges from 5-600 per gun. Unless there is some modifications/action job done to them.


    Good luck on your quest.

  2. Cannot imagine how the split extractor would affect anyone's ability to shoot anywhere near as fast as the gun is capable of. More modifications is not necessarily better. I built a Bunch of 200's with split extractors ( used to be ejectors) and never had an issue with them needing welding,

    Take nothing away from Dirt Merchant, he was doing SKB action jobs before they were popular.


    That said, I can see where a stuck hull might be a little bit easier to shuck with a unified extractor versus a split. No over governing evidence, just my thoughts, be that right or wrong.


    When two split extractors are welded together there is one moving piece, versus two moving pieces doing the work. I would imagine that the welded one piece is more reliable and efficient then two. Speed aside, I am referring to consistency in doing a particular job.


    Any game is about efficiency, the fewer unknowns or moving parts one has to worry about.... the more focused one can be. Another example is the Ruger Vaquero transfer bar....Some shooters say it works perfectly and are happy with leaving it in, other shooters remove it, do to the potential risk of breaking during a match. Shooters choice.


    Any way you look or feel about it, shooters get to do, (within the current laws) what they think will work best for them.


    Great sport. :D
