Hammer swap

Picked up a 44 special New Vaquero, 4 &5/8 on Gunbroker. Will a standard Blackhawk hammer fit without modification? I do not care for the NV hammer. (Perfect
caliber, good price without any premium for the caliber. Wanted one for a long time.)

It should drop in with no problems but some minor fitting may be required. I swapped a SBH hammer into mine with no issues.

I put a SBH hammer in my New Vaquero (.357 - 4 5/8"), dropped right in. I also put 30oz trigger and 15# hammer springs in at the same time; it goes bang every time it's supposed to.
