    Here’s my advice:  I believe that a wise move on your part IS TO KEEP your hammers from your SASS revolvers.  Don’t modify the hammers, either, is my advice.  Keep the originals (marked for which gun they came out of) in a safe place somewhere, where you can switch them back if you want to, or if you sell your SASS guns, you will be able to return them to their original condition.

    Just buy the replacement hammers you like off the Wire Classifieds.

    That's exactly what I'm gonna do. I didn't realize the SASS hammers were so sought after until I posted this thread. I don't think I'll ever sell these revolvers, but you never know.

    And here I was starting to think I was weird because I like the higher hammers as well.  Just got a set of stainless standards for my SASS model Vaqueros.  Haven't put them in yet-hoping to get it done soon though.  The lower, fatter ones just don't cock as smoothly for me as the higher, thinner ones on my other set of guns.

    Did you get the hammers installed yet?

    I have 5 stainless old style full sized Vaquero hammers that I swapped out for the wide spur super blackhawk hammers. Anyone interested? It wasn’t hard to do and they feel and look much better. Btw, I shoot duelist. I bought my daughter inlaw a New Vaquero birdshead and found that I can’t shoot it as it beats my knuckles up too bad. My full sized vaquero is ok though. 

    How much for a couple of them

    I swapped two out in about half an hour monday.  The spur isnt as tall but its higher up. Your thumb doesn't have to move as far. But it's not horribly wide like the ones you have now. For me it's the best of both worlds higher up and narrow

    Interesting. I will try to find a set of those as well and see which ones work better for me.

    1 set is for sure not stainless i'll have to look at the other set as I dont remember. I have no need for them so if you want a pair of them just pay the postage on them and offer me first crack on the ones you take off if you decide to sell them. 

    That would be great. Let me know if the other set is stainless. If not then blued is fine.

    I would swap in old model.  It's what I do on all of mine.   After duece let me shoot his that were done that way four or five years ago   I would hate to shoot anything else

    What is the advantage to using OMV hammers vs NMV hammers? How difficult is it to swap?

    Sorry I misread that. yeah if it's standard vaquero hammers you want there's probably several people that would be happy to swap you for the wider hammers that comes on the sass vaqueros. Myself included. I have 2 sets laying on the bench right now that i'm never gonna use.  

    You have a pair of stainless ones you want to sell?

    No, Super Blackhawk hammers are exactly what you have already, just with a straight cut across where you cock. Your hammers are Montaldo and they have a cross cut on the back. Standard hammers are taller and thinner.

    Thanks! That's what I needed to know. I'll start looking for standard stainless hammers.

    So you are saying you want the regular Vaquero hammers that come on the standard model? They should drop right in. Maybe you should sell the SASS models and buy the standard model. You would save money that way. 

    If those are more upright then yes. are the super blackhawk hammers more upright than standard NMV hammers?

  10. I'm sure this has been discussed 2,458 times already, but when I tried searching for posts on the subject all I got was  8,000,000 things to search through.

    I have a pair of SASS New Vaqueros in .357 that I want to switch out the hammers on. I want something that is as close to drop in as is possible. What are my options? I want something more upright and more narrow. In stainless preferably.
