If you go to the RW Grip Frame site, they have some brass frames offered at a discount. Worth a look, think you need to have an account set up to see discounted category. Really good deals!

Got it. What I need then is an XR3 frame (OR EQUIVALENT SIZE). My first guns were all 1950's FTs and I am very happy to have acquired a convertible .45 OM,,,but, strongly desire to put the XR3 frame on it for consistency of grip. If anyone has one to part with let me know.

^^^ Very nice pistols. I’ll keep looking around but will most likely order a new brass frame from RW. The more I look at the brass frames on the blued revolvers the more I want one! To me they just look great!
While these are very nice (I own several Ruger revolvers myself), they are not pistols. They are revolvers and revolvers are not pistols. A 'pistol' is a handgun where the cartridge, or bullet, is fired from the barrel, which revolvers do not do. All semi auto handguns are pistols since the round is chanbered in the barrel from where it is shot. When handguns first came out, they were all loaded via the barrel, just as muskets were, and this is when the term 'pistol' started. I realize that people often use the term 'pistol' interchangeably with the term 'handguns', but this is technically not correct for they are different. All revolvers are handguns, and all pistols are also handguns, but revolvers are not pistols.

When you say OM is this XR3 or XR3RED? I need an XR3 frame for an old model .45.
Maybe this will help ….

Shamus2022,, you will not get a Ruger factory XR3 grip frame. The one they made is the shape of the Super Blackhawk.
You'll need to look into an aftermarket grip frame.
Terry may have what you seek, and if not Ronnie Wells can help.

I must have spoken clumsily; I have a 1972 convertible .45 which has the XR3 RED frame. All my other OM Rugers have XR3 frames. I would like to find an XR3 frame for this great gun. If anyone has one for sale please let me know.

Not sure who made this one but it is set up for both type trigger return springs. Old three screw or the new model. Fit perfect on one of my Ruger Old Armies, uses the narrow trigger also.
