    Which model/version of Ronnie's Bisley grip frames did you use?

    It’s his standard New Model Bisley frame. I talked to him on the phone about the various models he offers and decided for these I wanted the standard frame for the easier grip options. I fully intend to buy additional frames from him in future but probably not for competition guns.

    Very nice. Love those grips! Issat a Ronnie Wells grip frame?

    Sure are. I wanted these converted to Bisleys during a time I couldn’t find Ruger frames. Plus they just look cool! I need to do some final fitting and finishing but they’re perfectly functional as-is.

  3. I had Snake Oil George install 5.5" octagon barrels on one set of my 44 Magnum Bisley Rugers. They look fantastic, and maybe I'm in the minority here, but I don't feel as big a difference as others going from round to octagon at the same barrel length. Most others I know that have gone to the octagon shoot 38s so maybe there's a more pronounced difference in the feel on those smaller caliber guns. The actual weight difference between my two sets of Bisley 44s only puts the octagon pair at 2oz heavier for each gun. Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy with the barrels. But I had that done because that pair had different barrel lengths and I wanted them to be the same. I don't have any plans to convert my other pair which already have matching length factory barrels. 


    Obviously that doesn't address the 7.5" barrel part of your question but thought I'd share my experience. I would say that if I were in the market to have another set of octagon barrels put on I personally wouldn't hesitate to go with an even longer barrel.

  4. Well I certainly don’t have a business account so ??? I clicked on the link in the email Brownell’s sent me and the $134 price was crossed through and instead the price was $100. Guess I got doubly lucky. 

    I prefer Bisleys all around, although I do have a pair which have SBH hammers and triggers and I like them very much as well. Mainly I like the grip size for my larger hands. 

    Safe shooting everyone and Merry Christmas!

  5. Snake Oil George is in the Tulsa area but I’m not sure if he’s still taking new work.


    Roy’s Creek Dan in the OKC area also does excellent work; he did an excellent job slicking up a Stoeger for me years ago.

    I’ll PM you both of their phone numbers.
