Question On Grip Frames

Recommended Posts

I have a set of ruger 32's with birdheads grips frames and I would like to swap them out for a set of the normal ruger grip frames. Will vaquero and blackhawk fit the 32's? They look the same to me.

 

Thanks,

The very first .32 single six Rugers had normal sized vaquero/blackhawk/single six gripframes and grips. I have a factory set like that. Yes, the "rugular" (XR3RED) gripsframes will fit.

+1 for Mudflat's answer. OMV and Blackhawk grips will fit those revolvers.

Glad to see this thread... I've kinda been wondering the same thing.. :blush:

My wife has a set of Ruger Vaquero bird head 32's...

she'd like to have the plow handle grips..

I've got a set of grip frames off my older 357 Ruger Vaqueros

I'm measured them with my calipurs at particular points and couldn't see any measurable difference..

Thanks for the info also..

Does this mean the Old Model Vaquero will or will not fit? I guess we are talking New Model Vaquero grips fitting, right?

I called Ruger about 6 months ago.. to see about getting plow handle grips frames for my wife's 32 birdheads..

They said they didn't have plow handle grip frames for the 32's.. I stopped asking questions there.. should have kept asking I guess.

I asked them "Are these 32's called a single six? or Vaquero?" They told me it was still a Vaquero..

My plow handle grip frames are from origingal (not new model) Vaquero 357..

Sounds like the previous post say they'll interchange..just my understanding from what I've read on this thread..

We have a pair of the 32 Cal baby Vaqueros in the safe that have old model Vaquero grip frames. They fit up easily.
