Hard to say they just don't feel right, funky feeling. Like a brick with a handle on it lol.
I had one of the first Vaqueros, the one where the timing was weird on the cyl. lineing up with the ejection port.
Instead of clicking in place at the port you had to hold the cyl. In place with your hand to load or unload.
A lot of owners back then were complaining about that..

yeah those were the early models, on a blackhawk frame.
the new new models ( serial number prefix of 510 ) are on a smaller and lighter frame.
and the timing is different to, with the load gate open the cylinders align to the ejection rod and cut out.
and with the free spin prawl or plunger removed the wheel can spin freely in either direction, alot better or loading or unloading . and if you get a proud primer for any reason , your able to rotate the wheel to free up the gun alot easier.

I didn't keep that one very long it was annoying trying to load and unload it.
Then I bought a nm, it was ok but I couldn't spin it worth a hoot and there was something about its feel
I didn't like. To each his own I guess what ever fits and works for you. I had to many years with Colts
even the Uburti felt different at first but not as bad as the Ruger did.

And I've had Colts that failed before and I had to send them back to the factory to be repaired.
But those were the third and fourth generation guns, I've never had any problems with my second generations.
Those were probably the best years for a Colt SAA. From my own experience with any fourth I'd take a Vaquero
over one of those anyday. And the fourth is only a fancy, way overpriced Uberti anyway.

Well this girl sure doesn't have any problem with the Rugers. I tried and I can spin them but not like she can.
It would be interesting to hand her a Colt and see how she does with one of those.
If she can do a Ruger then she can do a Colt, it's the reverse I've had a problem with.
The Rugers feel heavier to me so a lighter Colt shouldnt be a problem to her.
I always ended up dropping the Rugers, or I get out of my timeing with them.

Bless her and thank you so much for posting. It would be fun to see her work
with perhaps a Bearcat size single action, proportionately it might be highlight her
skills more. Thinking also a birdshead grip, short barrel 22, she could make them a blur.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus
