I'm thinking about doing this to my set of Vaqueros. I really like the look. What do you all think?

:lol: Not yet. I'm debating. I'd have to pull the grip frames off, grind the back side round, and then reblue it. Seems a lot like work. :?

It’s not work unless you make it work, it’s your hobby, it’s to be fun and make you feel good, and if you F it up you can get a brass grip frame, and I think you know some one that makes stocks. ;)

I would have to hold and shoot the thing to know if I would like it or not. I always thought I would like the birds head grips, but I don't. The Bisley grips feel great, until you shoot it! I know that is the opposite of what John Taffin and others say about the Bisley, but the dern thing would wollup my middle finger. The Super Blackhawk, on the other hand, that everybody else said would hit their middle finger, never bothered me at all. So, to each his own, everybody is different, everybody grips a gun different. But remember, looks are not everything.

You make a good point. Lots of work to find out I don't like it. :|

Up to you, if you want it you got to go for it. :lol:
Or you can pay some one to do it for you.

The Reeder style grip frame looks nice, but at what price tag? I know his stuff is expensive and I question the cost of it. I looked into turning my SBH grip frame into a Bisley style, but again I have to justify the cost factor vs just buying another Single Action Ruger.

I'll do it myself if it gets done, so the cost is minimal.

I'm not familiar with Reeder’s gripframes. Do you already have them? What style are they? Have you seen the Colt styles from Brownells? Are they similar? Don’t I ask a lot of questions LOL?

It's just a plow handle with a rounded back side. It's just like the one in the picture I posted. ;)

Just my personal preference but I was never real big on the Bisley grip frame.

I like them both, but I shoot better groups with the bisley.

The Bisley is a pretty comfy grip I think. I've never shot one though. One more thing to put on my bucket list I guess. :)

BH when you get to work on your grip frame think about taking some of the flair out of your grips,
I like the feel of it got three set with next to no flair.
