Now I'm drooling. Not a thing I would change with that revolver.

Oh man. This one could start a whole new run on Ruger Bird's Head Vaqueros.

Beautiful! Superb photos of it too. They really capture the beautiful lines of this little gem. And, in blue, it really pops.

$540? Are you kidding me?!?! I would be happy to pay that for one without the nice engraving. What a deal!!

Ounce for ounce; this little birdshead packs a good wallop.

Cheers
Love it! Looks like fun. From what I've read the Birdshead grip evolved from small pocket pistols (derringer, etc.) just like that.
I've always heard and assumed the same thing regarding BH grip. It's a little tricky to shoot; got a pretty nasty powder burn on my right index finger while experimenting with different ways to cock, grip and fire.

Ouch. Well, it still LOOKS like fun. I've admired a few of the NAA guns but never have shot one. I have an old Champion No. 2 from the late 1800s but it doesn't work. Looks a lot like your NAA though. May have to take some pictures.......

Oh Dude! You're holdin' out on us. Please, I'm beggin' for a "Family Photo" of your "Bird's Head" bunch.

You're killing me Wave. Every time you post a new photo of one of your BH's, it's like Janis Joplin's "Take Another Little Piece of My Heart." I stand in envy, awe and admiration of your growing BH family. Group photo, please.

I think if you go back through this thread you will see 7 Ruger Birds head revolvers from "the nest". .....there may be more......

I'll see what I can do about a group photo.

Yeah, there's a support group all right - this one right here. But it's more of an enablement support group and not designed to change your behavior. Kinda like having an AA meeting at a bar.

My interests in firearms seems to have have a linear path backwards. I started with semi-autos and then found I liked DA revolvers. Then I realized I shoot mostly SA mode in my DA revolvers and at the same time found an interest in older Blackhawks. Next thing you know I got hooked on the Birds head Vaquero/New Vaquero and realized I loved the look and feel of the Birdshead grip frame. So I have been busy readjusting my gun collection by selling off the evil black guns and "reinvesting" in birdshead SA revolvers. This has been a good time to switch gears so to speak. Although prices are generally up across the board the semi-auto/tactical segment went crazy and I have been fortunate to take advantage of that.

My linear regression continues. My most recent purchase wasn't a birdshead but a S&W .32 Double Action 4th Model that shipped in 1884 or 1885. (I have been eyeing a S&W Model 1 1/2 that does have a birdshead grip.) I suppose given the trajectory I am on pretty soon it will be Old Army, Patterson, black powder muskets, etc. until I reach the Stone Age. When I start posting photos of rocks and clubs in the Gallery somebody PLEASE stop me......

It reminded me of a feature in, I think Jack & Jill magazine, that I'd read with my kids when they were young, and trying to find objects in one drawing that weren't included in an identical appearing drawing. But, by Jove, I FOUND THEM ALL.

I'll stop bugging you now and hope I've not piqued the curiosity of Mrs. Waveform on how many birds occupy the nest. (But, that "Magnificent Seven" would make an awesome "Family Photo".)
