If you were going to try to modify a set of '29 grips you could probably contact Altamont Grips and buy an unfinished set from them in your choice of wood and color.  GF

How many times have we wished the grips on a ‘58 were just a tad longer, like the 1860?  That RH 0140 from Dixie, like what TX has ordered, may be a significant development in the history of Rem repros.  Its production really is a big deal.

Anyway, as to appearances - an 1858 and an 1860 are both the most beautiful of handguns. 

Congrats on your purchase, TX1858.
There's one guy on this forum, Magnus, who did a rather nice grip change

... so why such a light charge?

Twenty-two grains of 3F in a .44 (MAX !) is the famous Lawyer Load.  Favored by product liability counsel from Manhattan to North Hollywood.   Basically, it’s just another load from lawyers.

The webpage recommends 22 grains of FFFG!!!!   It doesn't look like brass frame so why such a light charge?

Mazo, sorry about Cooper. We know how it feels. Been there a couple of times. But later on you just remember the good times.
