Mark I Grips

Hey guys..

I just aquired a '76 Mark I, and it has the factory black plastic grips. I would like to dress it up a little with some wood grips, but I cannot find where such a product might be sold. Can anyone point me in the right direction?


Thanks

Clamp

After I bought an early-eighties Mk I, I bought a set of Hogue rubber grips for it- they were listed as fitting (only) the Mk II, but they went on mine perfectly. I would imagine wood Mk II grips would fit, as well.

The only problem with using Mark 2 grips on Mark 1 is there is extra inletting on the Mark2 that is unneeded on the Mark 1.

just about... but that little inletting may let the a drift pin work its way out. I don't remember if it was the trigger pin or sear pin that ended my range day early a few years back. easy fix push the pin back in and fill the inlet with apoxy. work long time.

Hi woodpile,
What does a set of walnut checkered grips for a ruger standard/MKI go for? Are any pictures on-line?
Thanks,
virrob

Brownells has a nice selection of grips. I went and put Pachmayr wrap-around rubber grips on mine since I shoot it a lot. Having a bigger grip with finger contours made it a lot easier to stay on target without slippage...just a thought.

BRownells - Ruger Mki / Mkii / Mkiii Grips

Another VERY good place is Woodgrips.com

You can fit MKII grips on a MKI. I tried them and they fit mine perfectly.

Just remember - you get what you pay for. IF you like your MKI - and I;m sure you do - spend a little extra and get good grips. After all, it's for a good cause - yourself!

Virrob thumbrest checkered would be $55 shipped and flat panel like the factory style checkered would be $45 shipped. When I get home from the day job tonight I will get a pick and get it posted. If you can send me an email at woodpilegripsatcoxdotnet It is a little easier for me to send them via email then it is to post on the forums. I an not entirely computer compatable. Steve

Simple and easy thing to remember as to "which" Mk I you may have , as the early one is an A-54 frame and the later one is an A-100 frame, the bottom grip panel hole is LOWER on the left side for the A-54, and opposite , ,LOWER on the RIGHT side for the A-100 frame keep this mind when buying any grips "on line"...... side by side this is easy to spot
As for the MK II< yes, they will fit AND work on the ;later' MK I (A-100) but you have to use a filler in the cutout relief on the left grip panel or the sear pin will drift out and "lock up " the gun....................
