Thunderer conversion question

591 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Butch_Cassidy
Hello, All. Wondering if anyone can help with this question: I'm acquiring an early Thunderer, but don't care for the grip style. Can the grip of a Thunderer practically be changed to that of a Peacemaker style grip? Or is that gun locked in to what it is? Thanks.

All it takes is money.

But probably any good pistolsmith can rework the backstrap, maybe even modify a Single Action Army grip to fit.

Google Alonzo Crull for some ideas of what can be done.

If you are looking to make a shooter out of a Model 1877 .41 Colt, be forewarned that it has an extremely fragile mechanism and also a caliber that is hard to find.
Yes I know. But I love a good challenge :)
