Ruger New Model Super Single Six Convertible grips Login/Join

I have a Ruger New Model Super Single Six Convertible and recently found out about the "Gunfighter" grips on the Single Ten and Single Nine models, but not the Single Six. I would like to retro fit these gunfighter grips to my Single Six, but the Ruger Store mentions with and without lock. I don't know what this means, or which I need. Also, the Ruger Store does not specify whether these are gunfighter grips or not. I have a "bicentennial" model, stainless, with 5.5 inch barrel.

So ...

Do I need with or without lock?
Are any of the grips in the Ruger Store "gunfighter" grips?
Will the Single Ten/Nine grips fit my Single Six?

Any new info would be appreciated.

Pics of the lock and with no lock.



IIRC "gunfighter grip" is a design (shape) offered by another company (Hogue). I was unaware you could get them from Ruger, but I don't keep up on such things these days.

To clarify: Gun Fighter grips are standard, from Ruger, on their Single Ten and Single Nine models (see description on Ruger web site). Gun fighter grips are NOT standard on their Single Six Convertible.

I am hopeful that I can just order grips for a Single Nine (or Single Ten) from Ruger, and put them on my Single Six Convertible, or maybe their replacement grips.

I believe the grip frames of the NM Single Six, Single Ten and Single Nine are all the same size and that you'll be able to make the swap.

Same shape/size. Your 1976 made gun will not have a lock like those newer models.



(^newer models, not to be confused with "New Model", terminology is important, but confusing when dealing with Rugers)

I appreciate the input. Because of that and some additional research of my own, I was able to determine that my gun does not have the lock, and that my grips are interchangeable with those for the Single-Ten and Single-Nine. Still not sure whether or not the grips in the Ruger store are "gunfighter" grips, but I suspect they are not.

I checked the website of the company that manufactures the grips for Ruger (Altamont.com) and they make what they call "slim" grip panels. I think those are what Ruger is calling "gunfighter" grips.

Thanks again.
