I like the Ruger bisley grip with JRH's enhancements. Do any of you guys have experience with that one and the BFR bisley grip? If so, what do you like or dislike? How does it compare?

I have several revolvers with Gary Reeder's Gunfighter Bisley grip. It's very comfortable and does a great job reducing recoil.

Huntington makes the Ruger Bisley grip usable when heavy recoil comes into play. My .500 Maximum would rarely catch my middle knuckle, that's how good his grips and the mods are. The BFR Bisley is a different animal as it comes out of the box with ample space so your knuckles don't get tagged. The sort of resemble a banana, but they really work. I have done extensive heavy load shooting with them and think they are the best commercially produced grip available. I have four BFRs with the Bisley grip. See below:

My two cents worth:

From the bottom photo the top revolver looks to be a BFR factory grip and the bottom revolver looks like the grips are slimmed on the bottom on the small end (no grip frame mod?) but also quite a bit on the big end (grip frame mod-yes.)

Is the bottom one a JRH Mod?

When you get the alterations from JRH he uses your hand measurements for the stocks and gives you knuckle room for the big boomers.

Max, I may have to give them a call and get a price to put them on my 475 L. Thanks

Gregg, both the grips in the photo above are Magnum Reasearch factory offerings.

If you look in the classified section here, there's a BFR that had the original plowhandle grip, but is now modified by JRH.

No, they are all BFRs -- factory BFRs. The bottom photo shows the "plowhandle" above the new "Bisley." Sorry, should have clarified.

Huntington makes a true custom grip for your hand and also subtly re-contours the grip to give you a little more space between the grip and the back of the trigger guard. It's really subtle but extremely effective.

Max, When I get JRH grips they are definitely thicker than Ruger factory grips.[made for my hand] Is the BFR grips bigger than factory Ruger grips? I don't have large hands but, I like a little more "meat than factory Rugers."
