I?d like to try the Bisley grips for my new BFR based on the recommendation of Whitworth and Tradmark. However, I really don?t want to spend $160 on the ones from Magnum Research without knowing for sure if I like them.

Does anyone know if replacement grips for a Ruger SBH will fit? About a 1/3 of the cost.

Thanks.

Hey Randy. I'm not sure what you want to do, but if you want to try a BFR Bisley gripframe and grips on your BFR, I'll send you my BFR Bisley gripframe and grips to try. Try them for a week and send them back. Interested?

$160.00 is a pittance when you consider what you are getting. Custom grips will cost you more than double that on the very low side. The Ruger Bisley is a completely different animal and there is no interchangeability.

Maybe you should try one of our Bisley equipped BFRs before making the decision.

I wanna try a BFR.

I don't know of any local to me. I know my way around a Ruger Super Blackhawk grip, but aren't the BFRs standard grip subtly different?

You guys rave on the BFR Bisley, but I would need to handle one to get past the banana look.

The grip frame and panels fitted to your gun is $389.00. It's worth every penny in my estimation.

I know they're unusual looking, buy when recoil gets to abusive levels, this grip frame flat-out works better than anything else I've used out of the box. The only better option is Huntington's grip modification to the standard plow-handle and the custom grips that come with it.
