I have a New Model Super Blackhawk. It is a 44 mag. I just shot it today. I can control even the hottest mag loads with it. I would not enjoy shooting 50 rounds of 300 grain full powered loads. But I could do it if need be. The nice thing about a 44 is if you handload you can make just about anything you want. In fact, if you own a 44 mag and want to shoot it more than twice a year you should be a reloader. As expensive as 44 mag ammo is you could pay for your reloading stuff with just a few boxes of reloads.

But as a handloader I can make ammo that kicks like a 22 or will knock you on your butt if you are not ready for it.

I have a 80's Stock Super Blackhawk .44 7.5" with the stock wood grips (Ruger emblem on them).

What is the difference between the stock grip design and the 'Bisley' grips, can someone post a comparison photo? Do the Bisley grips fit a Super Blackhawk? What are the advantages/dis-advantages for the two styles of grips?

The Bisley model has a different grip frame, not just different grip panels. The Bisley grip frame is longer than the regular Blackhawk frame, and sits at a slightly different angle vs the axis of the barrel. It converts the recoil from a rotational force to more of a push to the rear, similar to the grip frames of double action revolvers.

I was at Sportsmans Warehouse yesterday. I was shocked to see what 44 mag ammo goes for. I reload everything. I have never bought new 44 mag ammo. The cheapest I could find was $38 for 50 rounds. I shot 2 boxes of ammo at IDPA on Saturday. After tax that would be over $80! Plus the $20 for the competition. That is $100 for one match!

If you do buy that 44 you really should look into reloading if you don't already.

You should get a press, some dies and supplies and "roll yer own" ammo. You can do that for less than half the price at the store.

To answer the question about the Bisley grip, here is a comparison, Bisley at the top, Super Blackhawk at bottom:



Not only the grip frame, but the hammer and trigger are both different.
