While on the subject of stag grips.............

To continue with the fine discussion concerning stag grips, here is one of my stories.

I saw this used Ruger Vaquero .45 in a gun shop, with these handsome stag grips:



Now I had little use for a .45 Vaquero with 7 1/2" barrel, but I bought it and took it home. Soon I had ordered a pair of replacement grips from Brownell's and had them on the gun:




Well, soon the gun was on the auction block and sold. This left me with a pair of grips for which I had no gun, this being the New Vaquero which has a different grip that current Blackhawks. So, wnt out and bought myself a .44 Special Flat Top Blackhawk:




Then, with a little work with a proper fitting screwdriver:




The grips are unmarked and the widow who brought the gun into the shop had no idea where they came from.

Any thread I post is welcome to comment. Few things I enjoy more than conversation/photos concerning the handgun!

Thanks for joining in.

Thumbs up

I admire a man knowing what he wants and then goes about making it happen. Those grips look great on the flattop.

Hello everybody. I believe by posting this question I'm hijacking this thread but I can't figure out where to ask this question. I'm interested in buying a pair of stag grips for my 44 special blackhawk and I can't find out how to know if they are legit. Can someone please let me know their opinion and if you can gauge what they are worth. Again, I apologize if I'm breaking any rules here. I'm not one to post questions but I'm aware there is a TON of knowledge here and I could use a piece of it. Thanks in advance. I'm curious if they are actually Ruger grips.

Billy 357, Your grips appear to be real stag but I doubt if they are actual Ruger grips. The true Ruger stag grips I've seen have more "bark" and are thicker in the middle and more yellow colored. The insides of both panels are flat …. no diamond shape cutout. Quite a few grip makers have produced nice stag grips and have used Ruger medallions so sometimes it's hard to tell the difference. About the only way to tell for sure is to compare yours with a known authentic set of Ruger grips.

Nice work Bob, they look great on there.

Another set that came from Tyler gun works, they were a option on the NV 357
