View Full Version : Help! Dumb Ruger Grip Question

April 3, 2011, 12:42 AM
I purchased some grips for my Ruger Blackhawk off ebay. I didn't notice that they did not come with the screws and hardware, although the holes are drilled. I did find what I believe to be the correct screw and hardware set online.

My question is how difficult are these to install? Will the they "tap" in to fit securely or do I need to glue them in place?

thanks for the help!

they just have one screw on ethere side and you can use the screw that is in the old grips now

and they should fit tight like the ones on the gun now

No the parts that you screw into are not there...just the drilled holes. I think they may be called Escutcheon or maybe just nuts?

the problem is they grips were sent to me with just the holes drilled. There is nothing for the screw to screw into. I pulled the screw off my other blackhawk just to check and they will not go in.

oh ok the gromet is not in the grip that the screw tightens down on right

the screw goes through one grip then the handle then the othere grip then there is a gromet on the other side right
