    Thanks FOUR...

    The bright stainless Bisley Vaquero is a Ruger with a 5.5" barrel chambered in .357 Magnum...

    The blued Peacemaker is a 3rd Generation Colt with a 4.75" barrel chambered in .45 Colt...

    Pretty cool family lineage... Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders charged up San Juan Hill wielding the Colt 7.5" Artillery Model.

    Artillery models can usually be identified by the original inspector's cartouche (such as the OWA or HN) on the left side of the grips and the cartouche of Rinaldo A. Carr (RAC), the inspector who inspected the refurbished guns, on the right side.

    Shooter, that Vaquero is one of my favorites. I kick myself for getting rid of mine years ago.

    Yes...the slide of the pre-1996 P226 is a heavy gauge, mill finished sheet metal stamping with a welded on nose section incorporating an internal barrel bushing.
