More modern-looking single action?
OK, i was half-seriously looking around for a large caliber revolver in single action that doesn't have the cowboy-style grips of the Ruger Blackhawk (not loving the "Bisley" grips either). Is there no single-action .44mag or .454 casull chambered revolver that looks like a non-super Redhawk or maybe a giant GP100?

Here's the thing, i don't like the grips availabilty on the regular Redhawk, don't particularly like the look of the Super Redhawk, but don't really like the style of the Blackhawk. I also do most of my target shooting with my GP100 in single action.

What is a nitpicky, cheap SOB to do?
super redhawk

OK, 44 views & no comment. Is it a stupid question or what?

Well, I'm one of the 'veiws' and I can't help you with your question but I am admiring the pictures of the guns. :o

Have you tried shooting a Bisley?

You shoot your GP100 in SA?

You don't like Cowboy or Bisley style grips?

I don't know what to tell you. . . :confused:

I viewed a couple of times, but have nothing to suggest.
(except to look for the single action, single shot thing-a-ma-jig that used a 1911 frame.)

How's this grip for the Blackhawk:

Don't know what to tell ya, man. All the SA revolvers I've ever seen are in the traditional "Cowboy" style..

Last I heard S&W was still making revolvers. DA which can be fired SA. You can get a TC if you dont mind a single shot.
