I'm new to single actions--my .44 Spl Blackhawk is indeed a flat top, I believe. I bought it brand new about a year ago from a LGS where it had languished for the better part of two years. What is it about the grip frame that differentiates a flat top from a (non) flat top? I would like to obtain Herrett's grips for my gun. i did the same for my NMBH in .45 Colt and it really helped in fitting the gun to my large hands.

In a nutshell, there's three basic ‘plow handle’ Ruger grip sizes. Original large frame Vaqueros, NM Single Sixes, and NM Blackhawks use the XR3-RED size shown. The New Vaq and Flat Top NM Blackhawks use the XR3 grip frame; note that all the new model XR3 size grip frames are 7/16" thick, the old model XR3 and all other grip frames are 1/2" thick. The SBH Dragoon grip frame shown is for the 7 1/2" and 10" models. All other barrel length SBHs use the XR3-RED size shown:
