I agree.....

Here's my recent FrankenRuger birdshead - BH in 30 Carbine. I shot it again yesterday and I gotta say this one is really a lot of fun. It'll go out for refinishing soon and should be a lot nicer looking when it gets back.

Do the new model grip frames fit the old model frames? I like that configuration.

BTW, here's my latest Ruger. I need to geet it to the range today.

Yes the NM frames will fit the OMs but so far I've had to do some minor adjustment on a few of the screw holes where they didn't line up perfectly. I use OEM grip frames that are unfinished (vs a take off finished frame) so there's a good bit of fitting and smoothing needed regardless. You also have to address the trigger spring issue, either adapt the OM trigger spring or use a Clements hybrid trigger or perhaps something from Power Customs. But the NM grip frames do generally fit the OM cylinder frames and make for an interesting adaptation.

My Ruger Talo Birdshead 45 acp nested in its DM Bullard Bodyguard holster. Fantastic holster for a great woods carry revolver.

VERY nice indeed.

I ordered the same color DM Bullard holster for my SS Talo .45acp but in the "combat" configuration. I prefer a little less forward cant. It should be here in about a month I guess...
:D
