The mechanism of the RUGER® NEW VAQUERO provides maximum security against accidental discharge. As with any other firearm, however, the New Model must be used with strict attention to correct safety practices. In addition, the revolver should be inspected frequently to assure that it is working properly.
The Ruger New Model revolver mechanism is illustrated below. The same basic mechanism is found in the entire line of Ruger New Model single action revolvers - Single-Six, Blackhawk, Super Blackhawk, Bisley, Vaquero, Bisley Vaquero, and New Vaquero Models.
