Bill Oglesby tuned Rugers

Recommended Posts

I have a pair of Old Model Vaqueros in .44 mag, SS, one 4 5/8" other 5 1/2".  The short one has his SASS name on the barrel.  They are the best gunsmithed guns I have ever played with. I just wish they were in .44WCF mot mag.  Mr James action work on a Colt is close but the Colf fills different so it is like Apples and Oranges.  Would like a pair of USFAs setup by Bill Oglesby as they would be out of this world if the Rugers are any indication.

Yer mags will shoot 44Colt or 44Russian very well.

In addition, 44Russian is a period correct cartridge when filled with black powder, if that is important to you.

20 or 25 yrs ago Bill Oglesby was very big in SASS. 

He put out some fantastic Guns. He has some vidos on u tube.

He got Big fast , and started hiring people , that wasn't as skilled .

Enuff said.

He did put on a Fantastic shoot in Barry Illinois .

Dawg you seen them at the Indiana State Shot back about 05-06.  I have shoot very few smokeless rounds in SASS since 1999-2000.  The first couple years of the Black Powder Guild with the SeaCow running it my son-in-law and me helped run the long range rifle.
