GP100 Wood Grips

I am just trying to figure out how to get the Wood Grips that are on the 5 inch half lug barrels Blued GP100ís that Ruger makes in .327, .357,& .44Special revolverís ?? These might be Lypseys or Talo Special run Ruger GP100ís . I can purchase a Match Champion Wood Grip but I cannot seem to find the Wood Grips that I have described!!! I just want to have a set of the Grips I mentioned on my Ruger GP100 2008-09 .327 FM. If any one knows where I can find a set of the Grips mentioned I would really appreciate it thx!!!

Similar grips can be purchased from Eagle grips, but they are not exactly the same as the ones you are inquiring about.

I have seen the Eagle grips the Ruger grips do not have checkering on them. The Eagle grips remind me of the S&W Target grips.

I seem to recall others have tried to buy these grips but were told they were exclusive to that model and were not available for purchase separately. But it never hurts to ask....

Sounds like I need to make a call or shoot them an E-mail. I sure do like the smooth with the Ruger medallions.

Sounds like a great excuse to buy a new gun! I have the exact grips you are talking about, but can’t part with them in case I ever send that 10mm down the road, which is highly unlikely!

Those grips used to come on all the GP100s. They were made by a company called Lett Grips, I think. They went out of business. That is when Ruger started using the Hogue grips. Whether they went out of business because Ruger started using the Hogue grips or they went out of business and Ruger had to switch to Hogue I do not know. Altamont makes a very similar grip now, but they put designs in the wood. I greatly prefer the Lett grips. My brother has an older GP100 that came with the Lett grips. He has a set of Pachmyer presentation grips that he likes better and traded his Lett grips to me.

Just found this: Rubber Grip w/ Rosewood inserts-ShopRuger

I already have the Lett grips. What I want are the Smooth wood grips with the Ruger medallions that come on their 5" half lug GP's from Lipsey's. I sent them an E-mail. Waiting to hear if it's possible to get them from them.

Above are the Lipsey's Distributor Exclusives that have the grip the OP is wanting. Last time this was discussed here on the forum the word from Ruger was they were not available for purchase separately because they are part of a DE model. Similar to trying to buy a Montado hammer. Ruger seems to be getting their grips from either Hogue or Altamont but they don't always want to say.

Nice looking grips but I am not too excited about the price!!! I can buy a nice MC grip directly through shop Ruger for about $89.00 little easier to swallow!!!
