Wide-spur hammer for Ruger
« on: May 10, 2004, 02:33:08 pm »
I've got a .44 Vaquero.  I've been reading here about fitting wide-spur hammers on Ruger SA's (coming from Super Blackhawks?).  I've seen the wide-spur type hammer on the Colt Python and much prefer it to the narrow type on my Vaquero.  So, how big a deal (parts availability, effort, $$) is it to get this done; and who do you-all recommend to do this conversion (or is it home-do-able)?  TIA.  Peter F.

Go to www.ruger-firearms.com and order one from them.  As cheap as anyone.  With you manual, you should be able to swap it out yourself.  Same frame, same parts.

BH44:  So, looking up as you suggested, I see: "Hammer Assembly KMR04001B Super Blackhawk & Hunter - Stainless Models $30.00".  Is that the critter I'm looking for (my Vaquero is stainless)?  And you say installation is fairly straightforward, right? (my gun is otherwise factory-stock, with no action tweaking, base pin, etc.).  

If I wanted the hammer, PLUS other action tweaking (a'la Dave Clements), what are we talking money-wise?

TIA.  Peter F.

I've done just what you are asking about.  It was a drop-in, very nice looking, and easier for me to use.
