Default 1873 .22lr/.22WMR

Snarfed a Chiappa 1873 dual cylinder at the local gun show, but really hate the grips...
Colt grips will switch out with a little hand-fitting...

Searched the net a bit, but I'm not seeing any oversized grips for us guys with big paws...
can anyone throw me a bone here??

Obligatory pic

I've got An H&R 900 series and it shoots great. What Hawg posted was the remedy! Same w/ the .44!

I knew the pinky trick, I just can't stand the plastic grips

I may just find a nice piece of exotic wood and carve out a set...to spec
