I heard the new BFR's have a bisley style grip frame. Mine has the old plow handle grip. Wondering if I can put a bisley grip on my BFR and how much it might cost.

Here's the new grip. It is now an option so it should bolt right up:



And a nicer photo for the sake of aesthetics:

Oh, dear. I sure wish you hadn't shown me that.

No, it shouldn't require any smithing. Magnum Research offers both styles of grip frame for their revolvers for the same frame.

Max Thanks for the pics and the info. That grip looks like it would be roomy even with gloves on. ( NO knuckle Buster)

I looked at `em and handled `em and they're right comfy but I don't see why they call it a Bisley.

It's just their interpretation- just like Ruger, an interpretation. I can imagine they struggled naming their new grip.
