Ruger Universal 22 Auto Stag (109e)
Quantity in Basket:
Shipping Weight: 0.20 pounds
This is a simulated staghorn grip which will fit all of
the metal-framed 22 Ruger autos including the Standard and
Mark I (pre-72), Standard and Mark I (post-72), Mark II,
and Mark III models depending on your selection above.
The grip shown is just one version
and is not necessarily the same hole pattern as you will order.
It is for illustration of the staghorn effect only.
The difference is hole location, location of magazine
clearance groove, and control clearance notches in the
left top grip for Mark II/III models (and magazine button
clearance for Mark III). The same grips can also be
ordered without any holes or slots, and you can then
make your own holes and notches to fit any of the Ruger
The hole spacing is a very good way to tell what model
of Ruger 22 Auto you have. Here's a table that may help:
||R Grip Hole Spacing
||L Grip Hole Spacing
||R Top Hole Ctr from top
||L Bottom Hole from Base
|Pre '71 Mk I
|Post '71 Mk I
I will send you grips with the hole pattern and backside
clearance slots for the model you select, BUT if you want
to make a pencil tracing around your existing grips, clearly
marking the hole locations and indicating the location of
the magazine clearance groove, and mail (not fax or email)
that actual tracing to me (not a photocopy or picture),
then in that case I can make the holes and grooves as
indicated on your tracing even if it isn't what you
Some folks prefer that I check out the tracing and send
whatever matches it rather than determining for themselves
which grip they need. Please bear in mind that there
are transitional guns made in the 1971-1972 time frame
which may not follow the Pre-72 or Post-72 "rules". As
with most manufacturers, the inventory of parts and guns
not yet shipped doesn't suddently and magically change on
some date selected by the writers of gun books. Most
firearms manufacturers have continued to use older
inventory past the date a change was introduced. Usually
there are guns which are "made" in an earlier time but
not officially serialized and shipped out of the factory
until after the date when some change was supposedly made
in all of that model.
This means you might have a "Post-72" model that actually
uses a frame and grips that should be called "Pre-72".
Do not assume anything based on when you think the gun
was made or when you bought it. Measure the hole location
and compare to the chart. Or make an accurate tracing and
send it to me so I can see what you have.
Most of the 22/45 polymer framed Ruger 22's do NOT have
actual grip panels or any way to put separate grip panels
on the gun. What looks like screws and separate panels
is just a molded image in the plastic frame. Do not try
to unscrew the screws that are black plastic images!
Ruger started making separate, replaceable panels for
later model 22/45 polymer framed guns in a few models of
the Mark III version recently. I do not yet have a mold
made for these. Eventually I will and you'll see it here
as soon as I do. Most of the 22/45 Mark III's and all of
the 22/45 Mark II's do NOT have removable grips.
Quick test: hold a small magnet up to the screw. If you
feel the magnet pull on the screw, it is steel and is
probably removable. If you don't feel any pull, it is
probably plastic and is just a molded image made to look
like a screw (and it will mess up the gun's appearance if you
try to twist a screwdriver in the fake slot).
