What Grips does my Blackhawk Take please

Hi
I just found myself a like new Ruger Blackhawk in .44 special.

It says on the side of the gun Ruger new model Blackhawk, I bought a set of Pachmayr grips for it. They are labeled for Ruger new model Blackhawk but they do not fit.

Can someone out there tell me what I should buy in Pachmayr that will fit? I am guessing that maybe because it is a 44 caliber gun they take different grips.

Any help on this matter would be much appreciated.

Thanks Graydog

With the grips off you will see markings on the grip frame, example XR-3. Use that to order proper grips.

Ruger New Model Blackhawks have different grip frames on them. The regular Blackhawk uses an XR3-RED size grip panel.

If your .44 special is a flat top, it will have the smaller steel XR3 grip frame on it. You will know if it's this grip frame since it is only 7/16" in width. This is the same frame the came out with the "New Vaquero" in 2005.

Check out the pic below.
