A good friend has a 9.5 inch Single Six ser# 64-52xxx convertable. Looks like 1976-77. Is the grip frame aluminum or steel

I agree with GRAMPS.

Except for a few special editions, all Single Six grip frames are aluminum alloy and all New Model Single Sixes are of the XR3-RED size. Any new model XR3-RED size steel grip frame is interchangeable however.

Stainless models have a stainless grip frame.

And yes, stainless grip frames are also interchangeable with alloy GFs.
