Ive never shot a birdshead grip....they do look cool....but wouldnt it be abusive with heavy recoil?


I have a normal vaquero 44 with 5.5" barrel and the birds head grip Vaquero with 3.75" barrel and I prefer shooting the birds head grip even with hotter 44 mag loads.

This is my latest BFR. Hands down the best trigger on a production gun that I have ever experienced. Fit and finish is pretty good on this one as well.

When the trigger is professionally tuned to a crisp 2lbs, I can't turn up my nose at any of them. Although I think New Model Rugers need a little more spring tension to maintain crispness. Whereas a Colt, USFA or Ruger Old Model can have the lightest springs that will still set off the primers and still feel like a glass rod breaking.
