I bought an M44cp stainless steel .44 mag recently and I finally decided to get a new set of houge grips for it, but the problem was that Midway and the Sportsman's warehouse didn't carry the grips for an "M44cp" So I thought I had a typo on the box. I called up Taurus and talked to the rep. Turns out the box was right, But all I need were grips for an M44. Out of curiosity I asked him what cp sood for: Compensated, the revolver was compensated so they put that on the model number as well. I ordered those grips from Midway. Go figure.
