Who makes Ruger's grips?
« on: October 06, 2020, 08:55:15 PM »
Gentlemen,  Does anyone here know who makes the factory laminated grips for Ruger Blackhawks?  I'd like to get some, but I don't like grips with medallions in them.

I have some sort of recollection from many moons ago that Altamont made Ruger's grips.  Ring a bell with anybody?  I ordered a set of their poly ivory for a Vaquero 20 yrs ago but they were too fat for my hands, sold 'em.  I do have a set of their grips on my nickle Python  :)

I had the same vague recollection, so maybe it's true!

I have used Altamont and Hogue both.
They are GREAT replacements that really fit well.
Here are some Altamonts...Note the grip medallions.
One is USMC and the other is US Army.
A friend of mine retired and this was one of his gifts.
Full sized K Vaqueros, custom made flag case, etc.
