    Ruger Single Actions.......

    Well, alright, here's a good spot. Ruger Single Actions (except the Bearcat series) lend themselves well to work by the home gunsmith.

    Most of my Blackhawks came with the alloy grip frames and ejector rod housings. These are easily changed out for steel items. I have bought steel grip frames for the Ruger Old Army from Brownel's and fit these to the older Three-Screw guns. Takes a little time with files and emery paper, plus using a good cold blue, such as Birchwood-Casey's Super Blue. Or, have it blued by a professional.

    There's so many ways to customize these, please let us hear form your work!

    About all I ever do is a poor mans trigger job. Putting a slight bend in both legs of the trigger return spring. For the Vaquero seres I usually need to adjust the sights to look where I am looking. Never needed to do much elsee except shorten the BBLs occasionally. Not that I wouldn't like some really neat custom touches such as Bob's color case hardening, but that is all mine have required to make them really nice useing guns. Frank

    I just did the free spin pawl mod, and it was so easy it's rediculous!
    Makes loading up my .30 Carbine a bunch easier.
    My NM Vaquero has the synchro pawl, and is sweet from the factory.

    My new Vaquero 7 1/2 SS has been perfect right out of the box. Why mess with it ?
