    Ruger is offering on their website grips with the ""old style"" medallions that really dress up the 50th anniversary models and will fit all new Vaquero grip frames. The 44 Blackhawk has the new wooden grips with nice grain and the .357 Blackhawk has the new simulated ivory panels.

    I am really glad to see Ruger offering these :) .

    Unfortunately, the New Vaquero Smooth Rosewood Grips are already out of stock. They didn't say when they would be available again.

    I found a pair of Lett's ""replacement"" XR-3 grips that were sold several years ago. I'd noticed them in the Ruger Factory Parts section
    of Brownells and when I finally got around to ordering a pair they were out of stock. I found a pair on the internet. They were
    a direct replacement on a vintage Ruger XR-3 grip frame but were sporting current production medallions and escutcheons.

    I epoxied shut the dowel hole, drilled a new one in the proper place, changed out the ""furniture"", gave them some Tru-Oil and, voila' !

    I've since decided the 50th Anniv. XR-3 grip frame just does NOT work for me so ""Plan B"" has been initiated....

    Flatgate, is that a Hunter GF or a modified Super Square back GF that has been rounded? In either case it will give you more grip for sure!

    Oh, that is one of my Homeboy jobs. I actually trimmed the ends a bit short and had to shorten the trigger a wee bit.

    I got the welding done a few days ago and am working on fitting a ""homeboy"" made 1/2 cock hammer/trigger and also working on the
    finishing of the grip frame.

    I did one a few years ago and installed it on my ""shooter"" BKH-40.

    All I'll say is that this gun can be fired ALL DAY LONG with 300 grain loads at 1300 fps with
    no pain!
