Recent posts seem to indicate Pietta has changed the grip style of the 2015 manufactured Griswold & Gunnison and possibly the steel frame 1851 Navy .36 so that they no longer have the "Pietta tail". Does anybody know more about this? Are all the 2015's having the new grip shape or just a random few?

Hawg has the best answer I had asked the same question in the Brand X section http://1858remington.com/discuss/index.php?topic=9753.msg166237#msg166237
Are you planning on buying a G&G ? At lest his answer was regarding the brass , don't know about steel frames grips.

All I can tell you is my G&G made in 15 has the new style. I have seen brass and steel grip frames in the new style on ebay(go look) so I "ASSUME" they have redone the 51's too. Has Cabala's or other vendors sold out their stock of older ones with the tail? I dunno.

LonesomePigeon,

Someone posted about this very subject with lots of pics on the cascity website just a few months ago, but the  photos are gone now showing all of the new 2016 Pietta models without the boat tail grips.

It was this thread:

I've had several 2015 dated 1851 Piettas through my hands recently, both brass & steel framed in 44 & 36. No G&G or 2016s yet. All of them had the tail & were cut for a shoulder stock. Most of them have been sold to other members on here. IME 2016s won't start showing up until the fall at least through my supply channel ( Cabelas returns, overstocks, displays, etc).
