Hope your grips fit better than mine. Discovered the grip frame on my new Wrangler silver model. is warped/twisted to where replacement grips don't come close to laying flat. 1/4 inch off flush. Apparently the stock black grips are flexable enough to pull in when tightened.
Like the gun. shot a hundred rounds thru it yesterday. Loading gate spring pretty stiff, blistered thumb as a result. Need to contact Ruger re grip frame issue.

Welcome to the forum, Leathersmith.

I would call. I replaced my grips with the Ruger slim rosewood grips and they went on fine with a very good match to the black Wrangler grip frame.

I couldn't swap over the panels off my stainless Single Six without making a modification to the grip locator pin holes but found a bunch of old model Blackhawk panels that fit just fine.

Question, will the grips from a Lipsey's .44 Flattop fit the Wrangler ? I have some Altamonts on my Flattop and I think I'm gonna go with oversized grips from Texas Grips on it, and put the Altamonts on the Wrangler. Of course I can try them, but it's so much easier to just ask you guys......

I would like to see a picture or two of that grip.
Thanks

The grips I bought are from Altamont. I talked to them and the rep said the RUGER BLACKHAWK/VAQUERO are the correct grips for the Wrangler.

Fitting Notes: The grips for the Blackhawk and its family are not interchangeable with the New Vaquero or Super Blackhawk. While we offer grips in the same materials and designs, you will want to be sure that you order the correct grip.

This section contains grips for all Ruger models with an XR3-RED frame. Including Blackhawk, Vaquero (NOT New Vaquero), Wrangler, Single Six, Super Single Six, Old Army, 4 5/8" barrel Super Blackhawk, 5 1/2" barrel Super Blackhawk, Hawkeye (some modification needed to fit wider trigger slot).

Nice grip selections. I did not think of looking at Altamont. I bought the laminated grips from Ruger for my silver Wrangler. Fills out the grip in my hands better than stock.

Those look real good. Seem to fit perfectly also.

I had the opposite problem. I ordered a set of rosewood Altamont grips but they were too large for my smaller hands. I can't comfortably use them. They are larger than the standard plastic grips. I was able to order a set of slim grips from Ruger and they fit my hands very well (see post #4 above).

I'm making some wood grips for mine as soon as it comes off back order.

I was surprised how thin the grips on the Wrangler were. I have a Rough Rider and the grips are larger. There is slight difference in the curvature of the gun grip.... seems different......a bit more ???... can not describe it...more open I guess on the Wrangler.

Altamont has Wrangler grips on sale today for $25.00 shipped! I ordered these for my SS - hope they fit.

I went with Rosewood. Thicker grip and a good texture.
