Vaquero grip frames on NMV? in SASS Wire Posted 17 hours ago So has anyone done this? I have a set of birdshead grip frames in blue for the original Vaquero (bird in hand and they were cheap...…..lol) and I can't find any thing but SS grip frames new. I don't want SS grip frames on my blued guns and like I said I already have blue OMV ones. I know this isn't a straight up swap that's not what I'm asking......the cocking rods are longer, the main springs are different and the cutout in the grip frame for the main spring/cocking rod is also longer in the OMV. grip frame. Also there are tabs on the OMV grip frames that are not on the NV. So what I'm asking is can it be overcome? Has anyone done it? By using the OMV cocking rods working the springs out and milling off the tabs? The mounting holes are the same for sure I have checked that out but are the holes for the base pin latch etc the same? Thanks for any help.
