    Anyone know where I can pick up a set of wood grips for an old Ruger standard/MKI pistol?Nothing fancy and dont want to pay a whole lot. Preferred unfinished because I would like to stain them. I want them to be specific without cutout for bolt stop/lock.

    Do you need the original Standard grips that fit the A54
    frame(the original from the beginning to the latter 1970
    period) or the next iteration that fit the A100 frame before Ruger brought out the MKII series?
    The location and the spacing of the grip screws in the
    frame is what's different with those two, if you need
    it I can measure both models to determine the precise
    locations. The magazines have the button that draws
    the follower down is on the opposite side of the grip
    frame from one model to the other.

    I saw some for sale somewhere online in the last week or so. I will look. You might luck up and find a set that someone has taken off to put a set of custom grips for a good price.

    Not used, but Altamont Company makes some fine grips.

    Not for the MK I First site that I thought of Friday when he posted.
    "We do not currently offer grips for the Ruger Mark I or Mark IV 22/45 frames. If you would like to be informed should any of these be added to the ALTAMONT® line in the future, please shoot us an email and let us know."

    Yeah, I checked them, but nothing for MKI...I have checked around and I guess the Older Ruger 22 pistols just aren't as accessorized

    I have a Ruger MKI with the original factory wood grips with a thumb rest. It also has the factory black plastic grips. I bought it around 1965. Which frame would that be? Is the frame marked someway?

    Chevy427, a MKI or RST4 dating from 1965 ought to have
    an A54 frame, I bought an RST4 3 years newer than that
    that is an A54 and it was nearly 3 years after that when Ruger brought out the
    A100 frame change as I discovered when I dropped into my LGS to buy an extra
    magazine and discovered the design change. Hope this clarifies things.
    The frames that Ruger uses from day one to today, as far as I know since I could
    well be 180 degrees wrong though I doubt it, those frames are not marked as to
    which model a given pistol is made with.
