If they are the ones with the red stripe on the backstrap, I could be interested! ;)

My CP 44 has a thinner rear grip which punishes my hand. Not sure how to get them off however, sorry about that...and welcome from Northern Illinois!

I am going to disassemble the pistol ,clean it, look for wear and tear , lubricate it and then reassemble it. If I can find another, sharp looking pair of grips, I'll replace them. To Me, the orange racing stripe grips are pretty unattractive. Plus they are pretty faded. I took down My model 66 without a problem. Just something about these dang things.....and oh , thanks for the greeting, Czechbikr! Swing by sometime and We can grab a beer.

I have read good things about the Scorpion grip also and contacted them to see if they fit on my 44 CP Taurus and they sent back that they do not which means that the Raging Bull racing strip grips would probably not work either. :(

Thanks for the invitation pops! Watch for the Milford Hills Wisconsin meetup...we have been known to gather up at that club which is about 35 miles West of Madison, WI for a couple of days of shooting, eating and drinking (the last after the first has been completed!).

I actually have never had the grips off of my Bull, but I think you need to take the screw in the bottom out and then just pull them off the bottom. I believe they work kinda like Hogue grips.

Thanks Fellas, I guess I'm stupid, not the rubber grips #1 remove hex head screw. #2 pull the grips straight off! I hope that I have saved everyone in the English speaking world countless hours of hand wringing, teeth gnashing and head scratching!!!! Special thanks to all of you and Mr. Bob Dunlap of the Ameican Gunsmithing Institute. I don't know what time it is where You are, but for Me it's time to have a BEER.
