Grips made of Brazilian Rosewood

Post by Doc4429 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:32 am

I bought these grips from Donnie Findley in Tulsa quite a few years ago. I have not seen another pair and thought I would share these. The Blackhawk 44 Magnum they are on will turn 60 in July.

Nice looking old Flat Top with some unusual old model grips! Some of us call them rosewood, but mine look just like yours with a dark tone and an almost oily feel. Great gun and a lasting image of one of Ruger's best. Thanks for sharing. Brass Frame/Lee

I bought these grips from Jack Behn who was Ruger's purchasing agent many years ago.

Very nice indeed Doc,
Absolutely no question some of Ruger's most beautiful grips out there are on the .44 BH's & SBH's.
