Default Video - Modifying the grip frame on Pietta's 1851 Navy

I think Pietta is making good cap and ball revolvers these days. But their 1851 Navy grip drives me crazy. The shape is all wrong. I've talked to Alessandro Pietta about this several times, but things aren't going to change. So, I can show you how to improve that situation yourself.

We can pretty easily re-contour the grips and back strap of a Pietta 1851 Navy rcap and ball revolver to eliminate the Pietta "Tail" and give the grips a more historically accurate appearance. All you need to do this are a few hand tools and patience.

I wish the Remmys had detachable grip frames like the Colts, I'd love an aftemarket birdshead on mine.
