sweet pistola fingers! i love the size of that grip!

It's the normal misshaped Pietta Navy grip profile.  Since this picture was taken, I've replaced the non-authentic square backed triggerguard with a more authentic large round triggerguard.  I haven't done anything about the flared backstrap though.

From what I read somewhere, the Dance Brothers believed that the recoil shield contributed to chain fires by pieced of cap bouncing around and popping off adjacent chambers. I don't know about all that, but you sure have a sweet looking one there Fingers!

Hmmm... this thing is starting to appeal to me. _.O Historically correct non-rebated .44 but almost 2 pounds lighter than a Colt Dragoon, decent price at Cabela's, and not that bad a job of copying the original.

I did. ;) Got the new Cabela's Christmas catalog with a code for free shipping, and noticed that the catalog price was $20 higher than the price on the website. Well, my momma believed in drownin' all her idiot children at birth, $H* so I jumped on it. Ordered it at the internet price with the catalog free shipping code. {?| I figure I saved myself about forty bucks. Should have it in hand by this time next week. }_B

Yep, I used that with my shorty 58. However, it took almost three weeks to get to the store, and then I had a half hour drive each way fightin' trucks and buses on the interstate as well. ^y% Free shipping right to the house in a week is a better deal.
