  1. Hello All, I have a Ruger Old Model 3-screw flat top in .357 with a 4-5/8th barrel. It is "unconverted" so it never went back to the Ruger shop for them to add the transfer bar. Anyway, I was thinking about selling it but the valuations are all over the board. This gun is in "good" condition with wear on the left side of the barrel at the tip and the left side of the trigger guard (holster wear). According to what I can find it was manufactured in 1958. Can anybody give me a realistic idea what it's really worth? Thanks. Dang It
  2. Thanks everyone. I think I have a starting load now. Dang It
  3. Well boys and girls, due to the component shortage I am faced with the prospect of using some powder I have had since Obama was in office. I have a new 8# container of Winchester WST. I don't even remember why I bought it, but waste not, want not. Does anyone one know if this is suitable for .38 special? I am not looking for specific data for obvious reasons but if someone could PM me with something like a starting charge, that would be great. Thanks, Dang It Dan
  4. Thanks so much. I have one question.....is it a Deluxe Sporting model, on other words does it have the pistol grip stock? If so I would be very interested. I'll PM you and thanks.
  5. DJ, as I said, I am using an old model Vaquero, but I do appreciate your input. Thanks, Dan
  6. You're right, I should have specified. Yes, I am looking for a 73'. Thanks.
  7. I know it's a long shot, but I am looking for a Uberti rifle in .38-40. I would prefer the pistol grip style (sporter?) model. Message me back here if you have one you don't shoot anymore. Thanks, Dang It Dan
  8. Exactly right about W3G - it was supposed to be the "pro" event for SASS and it was largely banned from all SASS events due to politics. I participated in both for a while, but I have to tell you that I don't think there would enough interest to make this into a TV show. SASS is a very small part of the shooting community and most folks walking around out there don't have any idea that it even exists - nor do they care. And, I do think it would impact our sport as a whole, negatively. The whole idea behind SASS was to keep it an amateur sport and not USPSA. Hey what do I know?
  9. Folks, It does my heart good to see the interest in my current distraction. I promise to keep everyone posted on how this works out, hell even my usually stoic gunsmith said he thought this would be an interesting project to work on. Talk to you soon.
  10. ISOM!!!! Buddy I am sooooooo glad to hear from you. You will always be imprinted in my memories as one of the best examples of true cowboys this sport has to offer. I hope you are well. I hope to see you down the trail soon.
  11. So the company I am getting the cylinders and barrels from is called BRC in Sliver City NM. They will come up in a search as rugercyl.com. The cost of two cylinders and two barrels is $770.00. Now, as far as fitting these up, I will use Dave Smith in Ruskin Florida. Dave has built every competition gun I have used (exempt my Sporting Clays gun) for the past 30 years. This should be an interesting project. I'll keep you posted. Thanks, Dan
  12. Ok, so just to be clear.....I have two Old Style Vaqueros that I am looking to convert. I found a company that actually makes replacement cylinders and barrels so we are going to proceed. I guess at some point I should actually talk to my gunsmith........;). Thanks everyone for the help. I'll update this post at some point in the future. Dang It
  13. Does anybody know if it's possible to convert a Ruger Vaquero .357 to 38-40? I was thinking about toying around with Classic Cowboy or maybe "King Of Kaboom" in Blackpowder so I tried to find a pair of .38-40's - wow! I wasn't expecting to see those prices. I have more than a couple of sets of .357's and I started thinking about a possible conversion. Anybody know if it's been done? Thanks, Dang It Dan
  14. Sir,

    would you still have the Vaquero pants?
