In 2006 I purchased a Super Blackhawk .44 Mag 5.5" Plow Handle.Thanks to Badger after market grip this gun proved comfortable and accurate.

For many years I researched and thought of .44 Special on .357 frame,almost ordered a Bowen package and when the Lipsey .44 Special Flat Top was announced I bought one asap. Plow handle,and comfortable with Buffalo Bore "Heavy" 255 grain.

Should have been End Of Pursuit....but,Oh No!

Slightly bored with running 44 Special "Heavy",the Talo Bisley 44 Mag 3.75 seemed like the next one.
After some search,bought Talo Bisley 44 Mag 3.75 new December 2016.
Dull Thud for me.
Bisley frame proved as painful as original plow handle,the gap behind trigger guard, required special hold...skip it.
Will keep the 44 Special Flat Top
I should add that the shorter barrel Flat Top with it's smaller frame and compact factory grips ( plow handle comfy with "Heavy" load,no need for oversize grip)is for all practical purposes as compact and east tote as the 3.75 Super.

I bought my TALO 44 Mag for woods carry and as a hunting back up gun. It works great for that purpose.

Get the Flattop .44 Special & don't look back. Unless yer in grizzly bear country, you'll never miss the "magnum experience".

Regardless of your choice, feeding either will be a lot cheaper if you reload.
