Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to have an answer for me on this one:

https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/719020391

After some really long research I finally went forward on buying a BFR in 480/475. They had the above on Buds' so I put it on layaway.

Before I did I clicked on the little blue box to ask questions because the picture shows a Bisley grip with white grips. I ask rep which gun it is and he says black grips as in picture from BFR site.

when I look up the model number I get this:

http://www.magnumresearch.com/firearms/m...ctBoxCustomDesc

Bisley grip with newer rubber grip - the one I actually want.

But he couldnt be sure but if its wrong one I can refuse shipment.

I tried to do more googling but nothing until I google UPC listed on Buds Site all I get is pictures of white grip Bisley style.

My question is, does anyone on here know?

Im going to call BFR on monday but until then Im trying to hunt around the answer.

Then the second question; can I buy that new black grip and just put it on?

Sorry for the long winded questions but I want to make sure its the right one. Ive shot my buddies 475/480 with black grips i newer frame and loved it.

The photo from Bud's is a stock photo. They move a ton of firearms, go by the listing that's posted.

So Bisley grip with white grips?


If so can I buy the new rubber style grip?

The rubber grip is the older gun I believe, pre-bisley.

You might want to check the model number against the Magnum Research website.

If you look at the model number it ends in a 'B', which indicates Bisley. The MR website doesn't list any 'B' suffix guns which is why you get that stock picture of the old gun, pre-bisley. If you want the old gun with the rubber grips you need this one, even though the pic shows the longs cylinder the model number is BFR480/4757 (no B):

Ok, I see what you mean now


My friend had the new style grip in black which I shot, I do like the Bisley look just not the white grips. Id prefer black.

Is there anyone selling grips for the Bisley BFR?
