Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR), is proud to introduce the new Ruger® Vaquero® Montado single-action revolver that meets the needs of cowboy mounted shooters.
"Since their introduction in late 2004, the Ruger New Vaquero single-action revolvers have continued to dominate in all aspects of cowboy action shooting," said Sturm, Ruger CEO, Mike Fifer. "That commitment continues with the new Ruger Vaquero Montado, designed especially for cowboy mounted shooters."
Constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and built on the frame of the Ruger New Vaquero, the Vaquero Montado is chambered in .45 Colt. It features a shorter 3-3/4" barrel to reduce size and weight, and improve holstering at a full gallop. Additional features include a deeply checkered, low, wide hammer spur to ease one-handed cocking and grooves on the front of the grip frame to help the shooter keep a firm grip under competitive conditions.
The Vaquero Montado incorporates the New Vaquero's slimmer pre-1962 "XR-3"-style grip frame and a smaller cylinder frame with a unique reverse indexing pawl, which positively aligns the cylinder with the loading gate cutout for easy loading and unloading of cartridges. The Vaquero Montado also features the New Vaquero's hammer spring for the smoothest, easiest cocking ever. A beveled cylinder for easier holstering, checkered "hard rubber" grips, and a crescent-shaped ejector rod head are additional features designed to aid in the handling and shooting of the Vaquero Montado.
