Grip size for NM Blackhawk

I would like to find a set of Herrett's grips for my NM Backhawk in .44 Spl. I have seen Herrett's offered for the Ruger Single Six. Would these fit?

The Ruger Single Six has the XR3-RED profile grip frame on it.

Your .44 special flat top has the New XR3 grip frame on it, the same as the New Vaquero. I have no idea if Herrett's makes a grip for the New XR3. Your XR3 gripe frame is only 7/16" in width. That's the sure way to distinguish it from the XR3-RED.

Here's the difference in the two frames.

There's a slight difference in the position of the locating pin between the Old Model XR3 and the New Model XR3, although the outside profile is essentially the same.
