SA revolvers -a brief history wanted

I've been reading about SA revolvers and was wondering about some of the new made Rugers like the Bearcat, Single-Six (Ten), Blackhawk, and Vaquero. At first I thought they were 1873 Colts but now think they are more like the 1858/1875 Remingtons.

I know there are several wheel gunners here so I'm hoping someone will give me a brief history of the new Rugers and other brands. And while your at it throw in some info on the Birdshead and Bisley grips.

Thanks.

The Bearcat looks like a shrunken Remington but the others are modeled on the Colt. The Single Six had the same grip size as the Colt but a smaller frame . The original Blackhawk was a Colt clone but replaced the flat springs with coil springs for reliability and durability. When they brought out the Super Blackhawk they went to the bigger frame on all the centerfires. The present Flat top is the original Colt size.

If I got it wrong I will defer to the more experienced Ruger users.

Thanks, but why only two screws?

I was reading Uberti also makes a clone of the Remington 1858/1875. I bet that would be a good one. Especially in .22LR.
