    hogue ruger bisley walnut cowboy grips?

    has anyone used these? if so I would like to hear the feedback, I have found that when I use the pad of my finger on the trigger like I should, it is uncomfortable because I have to sort of hold my crooked finger out, a grip wider in that section, and maybe a bit wider overall, I think, would be helpful...

    Had these on a previously owned bisley. Although they were nice aesthetically, I didn't find them appreciably thicker/wider than factory panels.

    I got some plain unfinished walnut grips for mine. I don't like any finish on the wood. Raw wood looks like the devil but it sure makes holding onto my .41 Bisley an easier task. I keep the fake ivory plastic grips in the box but only shoot with raw walnut (cheap on ebay).

    I don't have walnut but do have the cowboy panels in "ivory" and really like them. The added width also helps with comfort with recoil as it fills the hand better. I will have no other panels on a Bisley.

    I picked up a set for my 480 Bisley and really like them. I've heard that not all of them have as much figure as mine do.

    They are Walnut and are about the same thickness as the stock ones.

    very nice!, I really like the full custom grips, with rests on them that keep your thumb/ fingers in the same spot for consistency, kinda like the thumb rest on the pa63 , or maybe it was a Makarov? you may know what I am talking about
