    Correct pronunciation

    How do you say 'Bisley'. I've heard it several different ways and am confused about it. I assume it is a guy's name that was used to define that specifically shaped handgrip. I know John Linebaugh uses these for all his big bore revolvers.

    It's pronounced "Biz-lee"

    "Biz" like in business
    and "lee" like Robert E. Lee

    Bisley actually refers to the famed range in England. The Bisley revolver was designed as a target revolver for the Olympic competitions held there at the time.

    I've heard it pronounced "biz-lee" and "beez-lee." You'll have to ask an Englishman for a real ruling!
