I am sure you will be removing the rubber grips. Rubber grips are cheap to make and sell you can mold rubber to fit any thing. You will soon discover that when pulling the the big six-gun from the holster it is very slow to adjust the point of aim as you hand rises to the target. The rubber clings to the hand or glove. The rubber will eat on you hand under heavy recoil. These big 6 guns going back over the past 150 years are stocked smooth by their owners. There was and is a reason for smooth grips on a big single action.

That makes sense. The good thing is that there are some really sweet grips out there for this sixgun.

I love those Blackhawks..Great shooters..I'll agree on the smooth wood grip preference. Rubber on the bigguns just never felt right to me.

I wanna see pics! .

Making your own grips is a great winter project! After you try the rubber.

I like the idea of making my own grips and I've got the skills for it, but I'm so buried right now that the project falls into the maybe someday category. I'll probably just pick up a set of used stock wood grips and try those for a while.

BTW, it's got that squareback trigger guard and that looks like a knuckle buster. That's why I was liking the Hogues. BTW, I've heard it referred to as a "Dragoon" style trigger guard. Is that correct?

Kinda sorta-
I think you'll find the newer style SBH triggerguard to be "user friendly"

I can't remember exactly, is the trigger guard part of the frame/front grip strap? If not, I wouldn't mind replacing it with the rounded style guard if it's just a simple replacement.

Okay, thanks. I'll look into it at some point.
