Re: Birds head or traditional hog leg?
I looked it up over on Taylers the importer, and to change a BH to a Plow handle is about $70.00.
They get this all the time going both ways with Uberti and Cimmaron. And that includes the fitted grip.
And it's only the back strap that you replace the front strap is the same.
I called them and asked and they sent me to technical. A real nice fella who loves to talk shop.
He verified that Colt now does use Uberti receivers and the cap and ball revolvers they sold years ago were all Uberti. Taylers imports them for Colt in the rough, Colt anymore just finishes them and charges a ton of money for the name. And he said anything Uberti will interchange with a Colt, but Uberti grips were one piece where the Colts were two. But the frame is exactly the same.
