Nice rig. Debating between the bird's head vaquero and the SW 69 for my next back country sidearm. Wish the smith came in 45 colt. Would like to test the vaquero. How's the muzzle flip?

All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.

For some reason I am interested in this pistol. I don't need it, but I think I want one. Are the sites serviceable?

Mine has the fixed sights. What do you mean "Serviceable".

Knowing the procedure to adjust such sights, are they of good quality? Properly cut rear notch, and movable barrel, ect.

I never had one of those a little of topic but I did own one of the standard stainless ones it was a one of two with gold scroll inlay on the cylinder wish I still had it but a Ruger dealer wonted it a lot more than I did and with what he paid me I was able to buy a very nice number one which I had a lot more use for.

I do, but it also incudes changing the grip trigger frame to accept the birds head grips.

As far as "Serviceable" sights I guess I cannot say much about that. I've not found it necessary to mess with them. If height was off they can certainly be adjusted "Up" with a file. Other adjustments not so simple and I've not seen the need to get into filing the groove or turning the barrel. Close enough for me. It's not for target work. It's a fun gun and with the birds head grip and short barrel is easily concealed.
