That Ruger stainless birdshead reminds me a little of their SP-101 stainless with the 3 inch barrel. Built like a tank, yes, but just so heavy and bulky that it doesn't "point" at all. But then, I've never handled or shot the birdsheads.

Yes, the Ruger Birdshead is a chunk, but on this 'new' frame not any more a chunk than an orig. Colt's Mdl P. and the 45acp is sweet in it. The 'old' Blackhawk sized frame birdhead was out of proportion for me. The new model birdshead fits into a back bluejeans pocket like made for it and just a bit deep in a front, slip it in and go for a walk.
But if you actually want to use the basic sights rather than just point & shoot I suggest you dont get a shiny sighted gun.
BTW, mine shoots cookbook loads for 200gr. cast to the sights if I do my part (getting harder all the time.....).

I have all three, and have to say that I like the original plowhandle grip the best. I don't notice the recoil reduction with the Ruger Bisley, and the birdshead on my Thunderer is a bit small.

Experience is a series of non-fatal mistakes

I like the Ruger Bisley grip, Ruger Super Blackhawk grip then the Blackhawk. Also like the grips on the 1860 army and Dragoon
