Are you talking height of the thumb pad of the hammer over the curve of the grip frame?

 

I would say, other than “custom” that the Super Blackhawk hammer sits lowest. I believe the Montado is about the same height but you can’t get Montado hammers aftermarket or from Ruger, as far as I know. 

 

I have installed SBH hammers on my Vaqueros and they make a big difference.

What about the Bisley Vaquero hammers?

They are the lowest, but require extra fitting.

The Ruger Bisley has the lowest hammer profile, But they have to be modified to work with the standard grip frame. Ruger will sell you 2 hammers every 30 days, they run about $36.00 each plus shipping. All you need is the serial number from your gun. I have bought both the Montado hammers and the Bisley hammer recently from Ruger.

Probably a 1/4 pound jewelers hammer.  Won't be able to do much with it though.  :rolleyes:

I see a lot of one handed Ruger shooters using lowered hammers, usually Super Blackhawk hammers.  The hammer does make a big difference in how easy it is to reach your thumb to it. I know when I switched to Ruger Bisleys a whole new world of possibilities of shooting one handed opened up.
