The elusive and mythical Colt "Pinkerton" SAA revolver. This one appears to be a movie prop and I am not even sure any of these were ever made by Colt or even made from Colt SAA revolvers.



EMF Hartford Pinkerton model. Not a movie prop.



Uberti Pinkerton model, also not a prop.

I am currently at work and unable to post. When I get home this evening I'll post before and after pics of my Boars Head.

Here is the Readers Digest pictorial of my Vaquero Birdshead to Boars Head.

Boars Head without pommel; still a work in progress.

Wow, I really like the serrated front sight & the stocks on the non-fluted gun.

I hear ya Frank. Just put my grip panels in the mail to Rod's gunsmith for the same checkering. Looks terrific.

We have the same revolver; my barrel measures 3.75". Am I missing something? Did they change the barrel length somewhere along the way?

Hmmmm.......Maybe I'm missing something! I was going off of the published specs in my RENE guide which lists it at 3 5/8". Same guide lists the New Vaquero at 3 3/4". I took this at face value ("it's in print so it must be true") but didn't actually measure it myself. Now I will go get the gun out and measure it on my own.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just measured with my digital micrometer and ...... 3 3/4" (3.7580). Proves the old saying - you can't believe everything you read!

Thanks Rod!

Oh yeah! Really, really sweet. That's a real beauty, cuyler.

I was not aware that Ruger built a Single Six Convertible with Bird's Head grips. Can anyone supply some details? Year offered? By Whom? (Williams, Lipsy, Factory?) Quantity produced? Original OEM price?

I thought I had all the SA revolvers I wanted. I was wrong.

Edit: To add some information found on a search. This beautiful SS was offered in late 2011 by Williams as a TALO edition. The MSRP was $600.

Thank you Terry. That's very thoughtful of you and genuinely appreciated by all Ruger bird's head admirers and aficionados, I'm sure.

Come on now bird's head owners, now that terry_p has given us a sticky for our group, let's show our appreciation by filling it full of pictures of YOUR bird's head revolver.
