The TALO / John Wayne Centennial Ruger Vaquero
$995.00 credit card $975 cash or check
This special edition is, by far, the most elaborate project that
TALO has undertaken. After more than a year of planning and design,
the gun has emerged as fitting tribute to an American hero.
Our idea was to try to show the relationship between the values
that Wayne symbolizes and the efforts of Bill Ruger�s proud factory
and the artistry of an American farmer turned engraver.
The red Ruger box features a special dome label and a
commemorative John Wayne sleeve. A descriptive booklet is included
with each gun.
An example of the booklet is on the site.
The gun starts with a highly polished, specially serial numbered
(JW001), 4 5/8 inch royal blue .45LC Vaquero. The engraving design is
the work of Lee R. Griffiths, Hyde Park, UT. , see
www.lgartistry.com The frame,
cylinder and barrel are embellished with sophisticated American
scrollwork. The loading gate, recoil shield and back strap are also
The barrel displays the Wayne signature in 24 kt gold. Baron
Technology faithfully reproduced Lee�s design on the final product.
Our grips are uniquely checkered walnut panels that display a carved
JW in each side. The project is produced under a limited license from
John Wayne Enterprises.
