SBH Hammers

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know who would have SBH hammers for sale? Is the Montado hammer the same as the SBH?

I want to change the hammers on my New Model Vaqueros. I understand they are a drop in fit.

 

Thanks for any info!

Montado and SHB have the same profile. Difference is in the checkering on the hammer spur.

 

AFAIK you cannot buy new Montada hammers. They are only available on the SASS Rugers.

The SBH hammers were drop in on both of my New Vaqueros.

Midway, Brownells, Ruger, etc but they can be hard to find.

 

Rumor has it that they only make them once a year, and when they are gone, they are gone until the next run.  Some of the cowboy smiths also lay in a stock, so might try them as well.

 

Normally a drop in job, I've done 3 sets that were, but have also heard of some that needed a little fitting.

 

I like mine, well worth the effort.  If you're not savvy to taking down a RNV that far, there are vids published by ruger on single action disassembly and re-assembly that are helpful.

 

Best of luck.

In the absence of SBH hammers you can use easily available Bisley hammers. They require removal of material, easily done and not around the critical sear area.

Lem and I have done several.

I was just on the Brownell web site.  They do not have any Ruger Vaquero parts available.  I will check on Midway.

My friends call me Chickamauga! The Bisley hammers were inexpensive, readily available, and, if you have a dremel tool or a good friend who knows how to wield one, easily fitted to the Vaquero. Thanks Imis.

By the way, Brownells has lots of Vaquero parts listed. You won’t find a SBH hammer listed there.

The SBH hammer can be installed without any modifications, it will function as it's supposed to, but it does not "fit". The SBH hammer will not fill the gap between the ears. The New Vaquero hammer is bigger than the BH and SBH hammer in that dimension. A New Vaquero hammer, either one, cannot be installed in a BH or SBH without some grinding in that area. It may be semantics, but that gap is not a "fit".

 

I installed a New Vaquero hammer into my BH, it took some "fitting" before installation was possible.

From left to right; NV hammer, BH hammer, SBH hammer.

 

FWIW: the Bisley hammer is even larger in that area.

I've attempted to keep the L to R consistent, Ruger BH hammer, Ruger New Vaquero Hammer, Ruger Super Blackhawk hammer, New Vaquero SASS (Montado) hammer. In the rounded area the New Vaquero is app. 0.040" larger in radius than the BH and SBH hammers.

Boomstick Arms has them....

I just left there and there was a box with several pairs of Brand New Super Blackhawk Hammers sitting on Jayson's workbench..........

I think some of those were already spoken for......... But he probably has more........ Give him a call.
