  • Ruger Mark II Grip Question

    Good news: just picked up a very nice Ruger Mark II, stainless target model for a great deal! And I said "Yeah"!

    Bad news: as I was taking it apart for a clean I noticed where the previous owner appears to have wrenched down on one of the grip screws and essential crushed the wood. When I removed the screw, the wood that holds the screw just fell apart. Then I said "*&@%"!!!

    So I'd welcome recommendations on quality wood grips to purchase in Walnut or Cocobolo (but I'm not hard over on the wood). I ordered some "cheapies" off The Amazon so I can get this pistol back in order, but I'd like better grips for both improved shooting and the looks.

    Thanks - Porter

    Do a search for Ruger Mark II pistol grips or pistol custom grips.
    Lots of people making them. Some very nice ones.

      I've seen some amazing repairs done on grips and stocks using Brownells Acraglass.

          Alright, alright . . . I got it. I did see yesterday tons of aftermarket grips available and will likely get some Hogue ones. Thanks for the replies!

            I recently replaced a set of stocks on a Taurus 1911 with a set from Kimber, made of Rosewood, with the USAF Badge in the center of the double diamond checkering.
            I love that wood color against a black gun frame, but, tastes vary, widely.

              I decided to go w/ some Pachmayr grips as I've used them on various guns for years and I like the red color. Reasonably priced at about $26 from The Amazon. Also, I added fiber optic sights for my old eyes. Those sights really make a difference. This is a great shooter. Gun porn images attached!
