Ruger New Vaquero Smooth (118d)
Ruger New Vaquero Smooth (118d) Quantity in Basket: None
Code: Ruger_118d
Price: $68.00
Shipping Weight: 0.20 pounds
Select SOLID color ($10). Natural Ivory is no extra cost. For pearl effects, use PEARL option instead (Ivory = default)

Translucent/Pearl ($16 option). Do NOT select both SOLID and PEARL. (Pearl over-rides solid color choice)

Add a medallion ($14/pr):
Screw Kit Options:
Yes, install the screw kit
No, just send screw kit uninstalled
Are you sending a tracing?:
YES! I want to assure proper size/shape. Tombstone is responsible for fit to tracing. Tracing will show hole pattern. **************************************
NO. I will be responsible if I choose the wrong size grip. I will measure my gun and compare to the listed specs. If I order a grip that is the wrong size or shape, I agree that it is NOT returnable. *****************************************************
I already mailed a tracing BEFORE I placed this order.
Optional note:
This grip is for the New Vaquero/New Blackhawk and some of the versions of the Single Six revolvers (measure and compare to find out if it fits your gun or not). It has a molded-in Ruger logo at the top, but you can have any of the listed medallions installed over it.

The back of the grip is flat but you can easily remove material with a rotary hand tool (such as a Dremel) to make the necessary diamond-shaped clearance for the safety lock. Unlike older Ruger frames, there is no angled reinforcement at the top, so you do not need to make a notch on the top back side unless you use this grip on an older frame.

As always, the best way to assure proper size for your gun is to send a pencil tracing around your existing grips, or a cut-out 3x5 index card template that fits your gun just like a grip. I can use either one to determine which, if any, of the many Ruger Single Action grips matches or is just slightly larger.

But first, as with any grip, measure your gun and compare to the listed specs. If any of the listed specifications is smaller than the same measurement on your existing grip, then this grip is already too small and can't be made to fit by sanding around the edges.

size diagram
  • Height of front edge (A) = 0.89 inches
  • Overall height (B) = 2.98 inches
  • Width across the base (C) = 2.015 inches
  • Midpoint of front edge to rear edge (D) = 1.73 inches
  • Length of flat at the top (E) = 1.15 inches
  • Height of screw hole center = 1.47 inches
  • Width across screw hole = 1.42 inches
  • Front edge to screw hole center = 0.80 inches

Ruger logo There are a number of different grips with the same model and brand of gun because the grip frames tend to vary with production runs, changes in tooling, and tolerances. The best way to get the right size is to send a tracing or an accurate template, marked with your order number.
