question about finding blackhawk grip frames

To the experts,
where can i find a bisley blue steel grip frame to convert a 50th anniversary model .44mag flat top

can factory parts be had?

Some background info. i want to have this gun fitted with a steel bisley grip frame and i am assuming the same bisley frame from the flat top 44 spcl series will fit ( assuming a slight bit of hand fitting) as i assume these are the same frame?

i may also have a 5.5" barrel added if i determine the cost can be justified,
i guess i am hoping to duplicate the feel of my nearly perfect 44 spcl of the same configuration

opinions welcome, am i cracked? seems like a good idea as of now

by the way i bought this gun to shoot, and it was unfired when i got it, i don't view it as any type of collector prize worth any more than any other blackhawk ( my opinion )

From Midway, Brownell's, Power Custom, or Gun Broker. All have replacement grips for Blackhawk Ruger's.

i am aware of midway , brownells etc. at midway for instance they are advertised as factory originals, however with other types of products factory original only means made to factory specs so i guess what I'm really wondering is are they actually made by Ruger/Pine Tree or are they just made to factory specs?

I've bought birdshead grip frames from Midway and they have every indication of being factory frames - same as the factory frames I have that are on factory complete guns. They have Ruger part numbers on the packaging as well. My belief is they are factory parts. Same goes for the ejector rod housings, ejector rods, and lots of other assorted parts.
