Security Six Grips

I ran across these grips in a remote area of my nightstand drawer. Didn't care for them back in '78 when I got the gun. Put them back on and still don't care for them. Makes the gun hard to hold onto when shooting full house loads. I have a Presentation Grip by Pachmayr that has been adorning it for 40+ years but after feeling the Diamond Pro grips on my SP101 it's time to give the old girl some new shoes.

Curious what the new grips are going to be. I still have the factory grips like the ones shown in your picture.
Nice SS you have.

I've been giving THESE a hard look. They're the Pachmayr Gripper.

Thanks for the compliment. The old girl and I have been together a long time. She's served me well.

Here's a set of Grippers on a Service-Six. I find them to be a pretty good all-around service grade grip. Of course grips are an individual thing and what works for one person may not be right for another.

I've had the Pachmyer Grippers on my 4" stainless Security Six for about 30 years. I put the original grips back on. After shooting with the stock grips, I remembered why I exchanged them with the grippers. 🙄

I've looked at Hogue grips to pretty-up the revolver, but the Pacmyers work so good with magnum loads and sweaty hands.

Do those have an open backstrap or are they wrap around?

The "Gripper" has an enclosed backstrap.
The "Gripper Professional" has an open backstrap.

The Gripper Professional is no longer in production for a Six series DA Ruger but they can still be found NIB from some sources (ebay, gun shows, etc. ) and used ones can also be found.

Well that's odd....I went to Pachmayr's website and they only offer the smaller, open backstrap model. They are calling these the Gripper Professional and state that they are a smaller version of their Gripper model. But when I look for the Gripper model it doesn't exist on their site. Only the model 3175...everywhere else I look only offers the same model number.

b.thomas is on a distinguished road
I've got the twin to your Security Six ('82 model) but mine came with the target grips.............
They work OK but having Arthritis in my hands I went with Pachmayr mono grips. So far they have work great for me!

Yea, I've noticed that. They seem to still use the Gripper title but I cannot find the Gripper Professional model listed for the old Ruger Six series.

Pachmayr is only one option, there are a lot of choices out there. On a Speed-Six (round butt) I still prefer the factory grips with the Tyler "T" Grip adaptor. The standard factory wooden grips are not very good alone but the addition of the Tyler grip adaptor is a game changer.

There are some factory target grips for the Six's and there are also grips from makers other than Pachmayr.

I would suggest that you try the Gripper. Even with the enclosed backstrap, it isn't that large. It's a good all-around service grip and if it doesn't work for you the cost isn't too great.

Here's a another angle on the Pachmayr Gripper.
They're fairly thin but have a slight palm swell.

Those are the ones I hope to get. I think the open backstrap one will be to small like the factory grip. There's a gun store that sells Pachmayr but they're 100 miles away...one of the pitfalls of living rural in a small town. Next time I get over that way I'll put them in my hand. Thanks for all the help.
