I have a 5.5" .44 Spl Flattop and a 4.625" .45 Convertible Blackhawk.
Both are plowhandles.
I'd like to convert one or both to Bisley.
I wonder how hard/expensive it is to do?
The .44 Spl flattop is a fun shooter. I had to replace the factory cheesegraters with some smooth holly grips from Private Schultz. They are thicker and better feeling than the factory grips.
If the Bisley conversion is more than I can afford, I may just put SBH hammers in both, and make/have made some mahogany grips for the 45, from some mahogany I have.

I don't know... This one was a little different repair, they rebarreled the gun in 1996, and it shot really badly and after missing a nice buck @ 20yds I gave up on it and basically hid it in a box for 17yrs. FF to now, I sent it back again, told them this story about missing the deer with the freshly repaired gun and how frustrating that was and how it has sat unused that long, and in the notes I put in there besides addressing the point of impact issue, to install a Super blackhawk hammer, and a birdshead grip frame if it was available, and offered to pay for the hammer and grip frame.

I spoke to one of their guys and the birdshead wasn't available so that was out of the question. Then when I called to check on the RMA, it had a new cylinder fitted to it since it wouldn't group with the original cylinder, it had proofed at the range and they were polishing it after installing a Bisley grip frame. I'm like huh??

So now, I just wonder if they are yanking my chain, you know making for a good surprise, and it's going to come back with a birds head, or if there is some explanation as to why they made a Bisley out of it. Either way, I guess is okay, I will be happy if it hits where I aim it.

Anyway sorry for steering the thread, wanted to answer scattershot's question.. I'll stfu now.. :smile:
