Looking for a grip frame like this one

This is a discussion on Looking for a grip frame like this one within the Single Action Revolvers forums, part of the Handgun Forum category; It would need to fit on my Montado. That's a New Vaquero with a lock. Anyone know if and where I can get one?...

Re: Looking for a grip frame like this one

I had a Uberti with that grip and I didn't like it as well as my on my Rugers . so I sold it about 5 mos ago . There alot of birdshead out there that will trade you straight across for your plow handle , that's how I got this one . I have less then $450 in this gun total .

I would call MK Technologies and see what they say, I think it can be fitted but you would lose the lock.

I found that style, Danny. I couldn't find anything like the Cimarron models. Losing the lock would be a good thing. I don't use it and it won't get in the way when I pull my gun apart. It may be easier and cheaper for me to just buy an original vaquero Birds head. They are getting expensive though.

Re: Looking for a grip frame like this one

I don't think you'll ever find a grip made by Ruger that looks like that. If you look at a Ruger's Bird's Head closely, you'll see there is quite a difference. I think the grip you're lookin' at is a Colt Lightning, or copy of it. I just sold two Montado's, must of the grip frames Ruger has made will fit them, but that Colt Lightning won't. Montado's in 357 have recently been available, but you can't buy them from Ruger. At the Shot Show in Vegas last year a Ruger rep said the only place I could buy a pair was from Davidson's. There was a pair of Sheriff's Models on Gun Broker that didn't sell about 3 weeks ago, the guy that owns them lists them everytime he thinks they might sell. One of my cowboy friends that lives a couple blocks away has become real adept at making Bird's Heads grips and Sheriff's model's. I'm very lucky I can call this guy a friend, he can do just about anything he wants when it comes to guns.
