Grips for Redhawks 45/45?

I have a Redhawk in .45acp/.45Colt. As those of you who have one know, it has a round-butt grip frame instead of the square-butt frame found on the .44Mag versions.

I've been looking for alternative grips that will fit this frame, but I've only been able to find grips that fit the square-butt models.

Anyone know where I can get grips that will fit the round-butt models?

I have a Kodiak Backpacker 44 that has the same grip shape. I needed some cushioning for my thumb as the left side wood panel (on all Redhawks) bites a nerve in my thumb.

I have used both a Pachmayer Presentation grip and a Decelerator Gripper grip both of which fit just fine and were much easier on my thumb.

I found the Decelerator Gripper to give big car comfort when shooting even the hottest nasty loads. If you push on the bottom corner you can feel the void if your looking for it, but you would never know it's there in normal use.

The only pic I have of the grip on my Kodiak

Thanks for sharing! I've been keeping an eye out for alternative stocks but didn't consider the option you posted. I've yet to fire anything truly hot through my 5032 but I haven't seen a video or read a review that said it was pleasant. Some others have suggested Tyler T grips, but their website says:

For Ruger, Security Six, Speed Six, Police Service Six, Red Hawk Revolvers with standard factory grips. I think I'd want to call and verify fit first.
