    Remington large grip Pietta

    See Dixie has for sale a Remington new model army with a larger then stock grip frame on it.

    Wondered if any have purchased one and played with it.

    I would like to own a Remington new model army that does not bang into my first knuckle on my right bad finger.

    Do tell my friends, is this a big enough difference to change this rather uncomfortable bumping?

    I've seen folks either modify grips or make their own grip panels for guns that have grips that are too small.
    Especially target shooters who go to great lengths, including having custom grips made.

    I don't know why some outfit like Pachmayr doesn't make some over sized replacement grips for the Pietta 1858.
    They make some nice rubber grips with added support for the Ruger Old Army that also fit the Blackhawk.

    The Pietta 1858 is certainly a popular enough gun to warrant some attention from the major grip making companies.
    There are plenty of after market grip options for other popular revolvers.

    I recall one fellow made extended grips for his Remington C&B revolver.

    Some folks have said that not too many years ago, Pietta changed their grip shape from having more of a tail at the bottom of the backstrap.
    I don't know if they changed the shape of the grip frame or not.

    It sounds like you might need grips that enclose around the back strap to move your hand back.
    Or wear 1/2 fingered leather bicycling gloves or such that protect your finger.
