    Safety on a single action revolver.

    Safety on on a lever action rifle.

    Geez.

    Buntlines are a hoot to shoot!

    Big bore Buntlines are more fun than the .22's. Those limited edition 10 1/2" Ruger Bisley Blackhawks shoot like a rifle out to 100 yards and recoil is minimized with almost no muzzle rise.

    At 16 inches, you are about at the optimum barrel length for the .22. Nothing inside 100 yards is out if range with the LR cylinder and maybe out to 150 with the Mag cylinder in place.

    I like mine a lot.

    I put those grips on my "stubby" RR...

    Like them a LOT!

    did you work on the fit?

    Great replacement from Dlr.

    I have purchased 3 pr of those target grips (2 are on my RR's, 1 is just for spare parts... low price!). Two sets snapped on and fit really well right out the package. The last pr I ordered snapped on too but it had a poor fit (glad I checked) and I recently sent it back for replacement.

    -----
    Received the replacements a few day ago. Look great... just like the other two pr I have from them.

    I was very impressed with the Wyatt Earp Commemorative model, but I thought it might be somewhat uncomfortable using the appendix carry!

    I think the safety is unsightly on the RR but that's just because I'm not used to seeing an external safety on a single action revolver. I could get used to it.

    I just leave it off and ignore it....kinda like the lock on my 85ul's hammer. I've lost the key.

    ^^ They are a great upgrade and well worth the small amount of $$$
