Optional note:
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.
This set of staghorn style grips was molded directly from an early replacement grip set made during the 1960's. Although the hole spacing is set up for the Pre-72 Mark I and Standard models, I have a different pattern of staghorn grip that is the same size as the Mark II and Mark III grips in height and width, and can be ordered with the hole pattern for Pre-72 Standard or Mark I, Post-72 Standard or Mark I, Mark II, or Mark III models. All of these 22 autos can use the same physical size of grip, but the hole location is different for the various models (Mark II and Mark III are identical except for a clearance notch for the left-side magazine release button on Mark IIIs).

The Ruger Universal Stag Horn 22 Auto grips are ordered first by mold number, like all my grips, and then you select the specific gun model so I can make the proper hole pattern and put the magazine clearance on the proper grip panel (Mark II and III use the left panel, Mark I and Standard models use the right panel for the curved clearance groove on the back of the grip). Unless you specifically want the shorter, early style grips shown here, it is usually better to get the Ruger Universal Staghorn 22 Auto grip and just select the proper model of gun on that single grip listing.

The grips shown here fit Ruger Mark I models made before 1972. If you don't know when yours was made, go to the Ruger website and type in the serial number.

These are usually ready to fit onto your gun with little or no sanding. Mounting holes are drilled, no hardware is supplied. Use the existing screws.

Colors and medallions are offered but are not recommended; usually, the stag horn rip is plenty by itself. However, you can choose natural or aged ivory for the background color with good results. Horn and ivory have a lot in common.

For Mark I and Standard Models made before 1971, the magazine follower button is on the right. The bottom hole on the right panel is 0.8 inches above the bottom of the grip. On guns made in 1971 and later, the magazine follower button is on the left, and the bottom hole center is 0.8 inches above the grip bottom on the right panel.

The bottom hole in Pre-71 grips on the left panel is 0.4 inches above the bottom of the grip. On the Post-71 (and those made in 1971) grips, the right panel has the bottom hole 0.4 inches above the base. The Mark II grips have cut-outs at the top for the bolt release lever and safety lever, and have the same bottom hole spacing on the right and left grips as the post-71 Mark I. Mark III grips are the same as Mark II except for the magazine release button notch in the left grip.

Grip measurements:
  • Hole center to center distance 2.75 inches
  • Top of grip to top hole center 0.6 inches
  • Bottom of grip to bottom hole center 0.8 inches
  • Width of grip across bottom hole center 1.3 inches
  • Width of grip across top hole center 1.35 inches
  • Hole center to center distance 2.95 inches
  • Top of grip to top hole center 0.7 inches
  • Bottom of grip to bottom hole center 0.4 inches
  • Width of grip across top hole center 1.3 inches
