Bisley New Vaquero 45LC trigger sharp?

Hey all! Im new to the forum and new to my brand new Bisley New Vaquero stainless... WOW! I love this gun! I looked at several guns at local gun store.. Uberti, Beretta, Taurus ( I think ), and then this Bisley Ruger new Vaquero! it was, for me, hands down the nicest cowboy action revolver there... and I bought it before the first sign of drool! lol anyway, I LOVE IT! but there is a little question I have... despite the awesome feel in my hand, I noticed at the top of the trigger right before it goes into the lower, there is a very sharp edge.. wow.. painfully if I try to twirl it lol but seriously... when I cock the trigger I can feel that sharp edge... is this normal and has anyone smoothed that off?

On my New Vaquero, the area around the trigger on the frame was pretty sharp. I took down the edge using a Dremel rubber polishing bit and doing it by hand. I didn't want to risk using a bastard file etc for fear of it slipping and gouging the finish.

yeah thats is an odd thing here on this gun... its so beautifully made and how did they miss this? I did notice for right under 200 MORE dollars there is a more authentic Colt style drop in trigger kit from Brownells but I like the feel if this gun like it is except that little sharp edge... looks like Ill be filing it or dremeling it too! lol

I had to go and look at mine. It looks just like yours and doesn't bother me at all. When my finger is on the trigger it's not anywhere near that edge. I wouldn't have even noticed it if you hadn't said something about it. lol This is definitely one of my favorite guns. I don't see that it would hurt anything to put a little radius on it if it bothers you.

I've had a few recent Rugers with way too many sharp edges. I guess that comes with rushing guns through to meet demands. On a stainless gun, though, no big deal. Just carefully file down the edge. If you are worried about a file slipping, just cover the adjoining area with some masking tape.

Or just take the gun apart and remove the trigger, then file, and polish.

If you can feel that edge when your finger is on the trigger, you must have one big finger.
I have big hands and it's not an issue. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. But like I said before, if it bothers you grind it off.

Well I definitely love the gun! it my favorite at moment! I like idea of taking it apart and polishing! after all I do see allot of machining marks on barrel that I want to also polish off... after all, why have a polished gun that isnt polished! lol seems when I was younger and was looking at revolvers I dont seem to remember ever seeing machine marks or milling marks... everything seems So perfect... and because this is stainless... I dont mind doing much on it compared to my Colt 1911 that is blued... dont want to refinish the blueing.... This is my very first stainless gun also! So Im VERY excited!

The only thing I don't like is the cylinder peening from the cylinder lock. At least the SS hides it well.

I once had a sp101 revolver that exhibited the same trait, it had a sharp edge at the top of the trigger that would bite my trigger finger. Most people don't even notice it, but it aggravated me something fierce. I very carefully took a dremel tool to it to reshape it, and then a felt polishing wheel on the dremel tool with some flitz to finish it out. A person has to go slow and carefully, but it can make a world of difference.

I have an original Vaquero Bisley and a New Vaquero (not bisley) and neither one looks like that. The Bisley trigger sticks down below the frame a bit, but not that much, and it's not sharp. Maybe they used the old Bisley trigger, and it doesn't fit the frame very well.

Welcome from Australia mate.
Glad to have you on board, nice folk here and lots of good info.
Never had that trouble on mine, don't recall the trigger being down that far.
