I have a Ruger security six with a low serial number (under 151). No grips for the security six will fit; I've tried several and they all only fit revolvers with numbers higher than 151. Anyone know where I can get some good grips for this thing? Pachmayr and Hougue don't carry any. I called Ruger and they were very uncooperative.

Your gun is one of the very early sloping backstrap guns made from 1972-74, at which point Ruger changed it to a conventional shape. If anyone stocks grips for these it will be NOS (new old stock) and on a dusty shelf or at a gun show. A custom grip maker might make a set for you, or you might just run a wanted notice in Gun List or on a board like this. I'm sure there's a set out there but they will be hard to find at this late date.

Was in a similar boat as you Yugo on another gun a few years back. Found what I need from Gun Parts Corporation.
