There are 3 different size/shaped Ruger SA gripframes: the XR3, the XR3-RED, & the SBH.

Of the 3, the early (Old Model/Flat Top) Blackhawk & late "New Blackhawk", with the XR-3 gripframes are the closest to the Colt SAA's - but are a tad further away from the cylinder frame than the Colt SAA's gripframe.

AFAIK, The XR3 gripframes are pretty much a drop-in for New Model Blackhawks - except that NM's with the internal lock will need a different MS strut & MS.
