I'm really happy with my Ruger Vaquero. I don't Cowboy Action shoot but a friend that does has five of them and puts thousands of rounds through them without complaints.
Most any new 'peacemaker' you get will be better quality than the old ones, I have pesonally shot a .38 Blackhawk, and a .45 LC Uberti and would personally suggest the Ruger for fit, finish, and feel. The Uberti was quite accurate though and did not dissapoint but for the money I say go with the Ruger.
I like the Taurus Gaucho in 45Lc is as close to the peacemaker as any, I have a good friend that has one and loves it, the Uberti 1873 Cattleman is a close one also. JMO
I am sorry they quit making the Taurus Gaucho. I handled one, and thought it very well made. I have Vaqueros myself.
You can get a "new" 1873 Peacemaker, so I would say that would be the closest. Colt claims they are from identical machining to the original. Be prepared to drop big bucks for it. One of our posse members, and a State Champ last year, uses two SASS special Colts.
