    The Vaquero in .44mag is hard to find, if the cylinder is tight I would think $450 is fair for a 90% finish. Is this one nickle plated by any chance?

    I don't think they are worth that much. I would pay $300+ for it right now.
    Those are easy to come by.

    My 2 cents

    How many Vaqueros in .44 magnum can you find today?

    I figured they were hard to find new and unfired.This one I bought for a small dealer that has had it since 2003.I do not think you will find many new Vaqureo in a 44 magnum. I think stop making them in the 44 about 2003.Again thanks for your comments

    That looks like a new revolver, great score. Less than 10% of the Vaquero production was chambered in .44mag, your short barrel is even harder to find. I have a New Vaquero and Vaquero in .45LC, still looking for a nice Vaquero in .44mag, the New Vaquero being a smaller frame is not available in .44mag.

    Thanks
    It is a new Vaquero,When I first look at it it was in the display case and I figured it was used.When I went back and took a look at it the owner told it was new he just had it out of the box.I think I made a fair deal
    Thanks again for your comments
