    I'm in the market for some alternative grips for my Ruger Vaquero (heavy frame) with the bird's eye handle. I'm think'n there's not much of a market for such a thing but one can always hope.

    I think you mean bird's head, right? Birdseye usually refers to the grain pattern on some maple stocks, etc.

    Well, there is 'Bird's Eye Maple', which is sometimes used for a Stock or Stocks.

    And, on Revolvers, there is sometimes what is called a 'Bird's Head Grip'.

    One could even have a Bird's Head Grip, fitted with Bird's Eye Maple Stocks.

    I don't know for sure but since the locator dowel is in the same place, Cary Chapman could probably make you a set for the Ruger birdshead. He would need your grip frame for proper fitment. He's a pleasure to deal with and his turnaround is quick. He could even make you a set in birdseye maple if you so choose. ;)
