I am looking for a set of wood grips for my Ruger Old Army with or without the medallion . I want to custom them by putting a 1954 penny on one side and a 2010 penny on the other were the medallion goes. Reason being is I lost my dad to suicide on Christmas eve and am wanting to do a memorial on his favorite handgun. Maybe carve some words into the grips things like that. A lot of my friends cant understand why I even like firearms anymore. I say its not the weapon but its user, It is made of iron and wood. Nothing but a inanimate object. So why should I change who I am and surrender my favorite hobby. But anyways sorry to poor my problems out here. Any help finding grips is appreciated!

Can't help you on your search other than to google "custom grips."
I simply wanted to say, I'm truly sorry for your loss.

Thanks for the condolences. I don't want a company doing the custom work. Its something I want to play around with till I get what I want.

Sorry for your loss.
As to finding grips to use, I would recommend regular searches of the auction sites, and maybe check out any gun shows in your area. Something will turn up.
Oh, might go to the Ruger forum and ask there.

I'm not shure which, but either the "blackhawk/vaquero, or the super blackhawk fit the ROA. Might simplify your search.
