Question is this frame shape..........

easier or harder to shoot than the standard single six frame. I have never held this style frame.

I have entertained the idea off and on since they first came out. Held about every one Ive found on a gun show table but never could quite ‘pull the trigger’; and the prices used just keep going up. Maybe this new offering will bring the older ones down?
The gun is big and heavy, it is a horse pistol of a 22, gotta have a fair big hand/long fingers for it. Imo, the standard SSS is plenty big.....The Bisley is probably at its best with 44s amd 45s, the kickers, but I dont have a Ruger Bisley and one in 22 is one I would play with more than a cf.
Btw, I like the Ruger ‘Bisley’ version better than the Colt’s, it is a take off on the Elmer Keith-Harold Croft collaboration (iirc) which made, imo, good improvements.

I have 2 Single Six's, and a Blackhawk 357. I have been shooting Ruger plow handles for 40+ years.
I always thought that one with the Bisley grip would give me a better hold. So about 3 years ago I got the Lipsey's 5 1/2" Blackhawk 44 Special. Off of a sandbag it would out shoot all of the 357's that I have had, but the trigger guard would give your middle finger a beating. I got the gun to use for silhouette's, but could never get it to shoot off hand for me. I couldn't get used to the Bisley grip. I just replaced it with a Lipsey's 5" GP100, 44 Special, and couldn't be happier.

The Bisley grip is one of those things that you ether love or hate, and I'll never get another one.

Looks fetching
On my SSS, which I use for more of a ‘target gun’, I replaced the ramp with an undercut target sight from the semi-auto; it gives me a wonderful, crisp sight picture. If I had a Bisley Id be fer sure an certain doin’ the same.

I have a Ruger Bisley and like it a lot...

I have a Ruger Bisley and like it a lot. I bought it used. It is blue, not stainless. It shoots very well. As accurate as the best of my handguns.

My last gun was a Bearcat - This revolver is twice the weight and maybe one of the heaviest BlackHawk's made.
I was showing it to my Son this morning and he said geez Dad you finally bought a real gun... We Laughed.

My Bisley is in Florida...

My Bisley is in Florida and I am on Cape Cod for the summer. Back middle of October.

If you go to Google and put in Ruger Bisley .22 then wait for that page to come up, then click Images and you will have a lot of representative pictures.

Well I took the Bisely to the range today - I shot at 5 yards to 25 yards and it was very accurate. One of the most accurate revolver's I have owned.
The Grips felt very good in my hand which helped with the accuracy - I had no issues getting my whole hand well placed.
The fact that the revolver is a 22LR I had no sore fingers - but with a larger caliber that could be a issue.
The Revolver is built like a tank and beautiful. The adjustable sights help these old eyes allot.
Now for the bad (for me) the Revolver is very heavy as GCrank stated. actually more than I expected. Heavier than any Single Six I have owned. And because of this I and the Bisely will part ways.
But for anyone looking to start out with a well built 22LR target revolver - and eventually wants to move up in Caliber - I don't think you can go wrong with this Bisely.
