The grips that have all come with my Ruger New Model Blackhawks have been slim, but the replacement grips that I've ordered from Ruger (Ivory #19881 and Rosewood #70046) have both been much thicker - 1.10 inches at the base of the grip for the slim ones, and 1.60 inches, for the thicker ones. It's almost to the point of being uncomfortable in my hand after using the slimmer grips for so long. Does anyone know where you can get the same style slimmer grips? Would love to have the Ruger medallion on them if possible.

Welcome to the blackhawk trail. I have a Tupperware full of grips. Some I bought and didn't like, some came as extras with guns I purchased. Some of them are just to change the look when I get bored.
I have thinned out grip panels on a bench mounted belt sander. Practice with a chunk of scrap wood to get the hang of it. Learned this the hard way.

I recently bought a used blackhawk, the grips that came on it had the medallions and seemed to be factory. They had a flat edge where they meet the grip frame. I dont care for the look and they felt a little weird in hand. I'll get off my lazy butt and go downstairs for pictures. Maybe

Here is a picture of the thinner Gunfighter grips from the Single Ten on my Single Seven. Good luck!
Thanks! That's exactly what I'm looking for. Where did you get those? This first photo shows the thinner grips that look just like those on my Blackhawk Flattop .44 Special.

And this shows the newer grips I just got in the mail on my Blackhawk .357. Definitely thicker, and the screw is recessed a lot more.

Like Savannahboy, I called Ruger CS and ordered the grips for the Single Ten.

Top are an old pair of walnuts.
Second photo are some that came on a Buckeye I bought used.
They are marked xrp. They don't seem thicker than the old older ones but that flat edge at the grip frame feels strange in my hand.
Not sure when they were produced, I'm not a fan.
