The new Bisley's a keeper!

#1 Post by 2ndovc » Thu Nov 07, 2019 7:43 pm

Didn't get a chance to shoot the .45 ACP cylinder. With the Power base pin I have to take the ejector rod and housing off to change out the cylinders because of the 3 3/4" barrel. The guy I bought it from just sent me the original base pin. It may just end up back in the revolver.

Anyway, Had time to shoot a box of PMC factory "Cowboy" type loads and a box of handloads with 6.2 grains of Titegroup..
Pretty pleased for the first time out. I was only shooting at 15 yds. This indoor range is not well lit and I had the wrong glasses but you can see it
shoots pretty good. I also forgot to take a small screw driver along. Previous owner had the rear sight run way up and shooting about 8" high at that range.
Not a big fan f their targets, but I forgot those too. :roll:

Very nice indeed. A little fine tuning and I think you can call it good to go.

Very handy sized firearm you have there.

Very nice! I like Bisleys, but have never fired one. How do you like the grip compared to the standard SAA type grips when shooting?

Bisley grip/frames are awesome - they make the single-actions really shootable, across all the range of power and recoil.

....and those Maple ones look GREAT as well - where did you get them...???

For me, I like they size of the grip, fits my hand well and seems to have a bit more control with heavy loads. I have two Super Blackhawks, one Old model and one of the new ones with the smaller grip frame. The Old Model fits me perfectly, even with the heaviest loads while I tend to shoot .44 Spls in the New Model because that short grip really digs into my hand. The fella I bought the Bisley from said it was too big for him and he's since bought one with a birds head grip.


Doc,
The grips came from a guy on Ebay, goes by Arizona grip co. they came with the Bisley. I ordered a set for my stainless SBH but ended up with a set for an Old Model SBH. Decided to keep them, they look good on the Bowen. Have to order another set for the New Model. :D

Great looking pistol, kinda weird tho to not see a non-zombie target! When regular pin is back in will you be able to switch cylinders easily?

I love those Bisley grips. I personally need a little more barrel though. I'd love to have a .357 with a 5.5".

For me, Bisley grip frames change the angle of the grip enough to make it easier to shoot accurately.

I was in the same boat at one time, finally just bought one to try it out. Everyone as different tastes so it's kind of hard to take somebody's word. Saying that I enjoy it because my pinky isn't dangling, then I also discovered the Super Blackhawk, full length grip as well. Too bad Ruger never made it in 45, have had to convert a few. But for low and standard recoil and quick shots I like the standard grip with thinner panels. For target or hunting, slow fire type, I enjoy the Bisley. It also helps with controlling during recoil, but I also think the super Blackhawk does that too, some guys hate the square trigger guard, I haven't had that problem yet. But I never have gotten hammer bite from a 1911 with a spur hammer either?
