Ruger New Vaquero
The grips for the New Vaquero and its family are not interchangeable with the Blackhawk/Vaquero.
If you have a third generation New Vaquero with the special safety, please make a note of it during your purchase or call us as we need to make a special cutout for the safety.
The New Vaquero was introduced by Ruger as a similar gun to the Vaquero/Blackhawk family. This is a very similar gun but the grip frame is slightly smaller and shaped more like the original Single Action. We make all of the same designs for the New Vaquero as for the Blackhawk/Vaquero family.
The Premier New Vaquero grips come with high polish, exotic materials, careful checkering, carving and engraving.
The woods are East Indian Rosewood, African Cocobolo, Figured (fancy) Walnut and highly polished Superrosewood. They also come with gold screws and escutcheons. The checkering, engraving and carving examples are pictured below.
We offer the standard grip styles and materials for the New Vaquero in Super Rose, Super Walnut and Silver Black, Bonded Ivory and Pearl (synthetic).
The standard checkering and engraving is shown and listed below.
