Grips

I have a Ruger 5243 Blackhawk Convertible 6RD 45LC/45ACP 4.63", I believe its a XR-3 frame, I am having trouble finding new grips and I know its an ongoing thing on some of the forums but half the sites say they will fit and half don't.

I haven’t looked for that set of grips since I don’t have one.

However a comfortable set of good looking custom grips might be an option.

mikebud72, Thanks to Ruger for the confusion factor, there are two types of New Model Blackhawks …. the origional full frame model and the newer mid-frame model (flattop). Yours is an origional model so it takes XR3-RED grips. The mid-frame takes XR3, which were the same as the early Old Model grips. XR3 and XR3-RED grips have different profiles so they are NOT interchangeable.
