Did you know that Traditions has an 1861 Navy with half fluted cylinder and a Birdhead Grip? I have noticed several custom modified revolvers with Birdhead Grips on the Forums, Auctions, etc. Piettal lists severa variations of percussion revolvers with the Birdhead Grip but this is the first one to be offered in this country. It is very expensive in the $500+ range. It is a really handsome piece.
