Thanks, no I didn't. I wanted to, but he assured me that it really wasn't necessary as he felt ruger grip frames have been pretty consistent. Still I was pretty sceptical because there is a lot a variance in the frames between several I have but I guess I got lucky and the grips worked out pretty well on the single seven. Now I have a single ten that I would not take a chance with, I've tried many off the shelf grips on it and none and have fit it well.Very nice and looks like an excellent fit. Did you send him your frame ??
