Unless,like me,you have short, somewhat chubby hands,then,the Colt Navy grip is almost form fitting.

The Coly 1860 Army had similar grips to the 1851 except for the fact that they were a bit longer. This was because of the larger load and higher recoil of the 1860 . The weight was only 1 ounce heavier and the load almost the same as the Dragoon Colts that weighed in at well over 4lbs as opposed to 2lbs 8ozs. for the 1860 Army.
