    I heard so much about the Bisley grip that I decided to see for myself. I got a .45 Colt Blackhawk and converted it to a Bisley:

    After a few thousand rounds of heavy handloads, I put it back to Blackhawk configuration:

    But after all my shooting, I still preferred the Super Blackhawk grip frame, as this one:

    This is a personal thing, I doubt this applies to everyone: It's hard for me to not relax my wrist to early with the Bisley grip. I have no problem with the Blackhawk or a mono-grip.

    I never was a fan of Bisley's either, just never felt right.

    I'm just the opposite,I prefer the Bisley or a Birdshead grip over the Plow handle grip.

    The Bisley grip put my hand in an awkward position relative to the line of sight. It kinda made me have to forcibly bend my wrist downward to aim the gun. Then the recoil went more straight to the rear, rather than the normal way a SA revolver swings upward. So now I only have the standard SAA/Blackhawk/Vaquero grips on my SA revolvers.
