I have a three day inspection period, what do you think? DOB 1980.

Thanks for the confidence but it's so easy to just call Ruger and verify that there is no point in not. The ladies there are very nice and will follow up with a letter if you like. All free. If it did leave the factory with the rubber then it's uncommon. One of the other forum members pointed out that the very first shipments of rubber grips seem to have been in response to a police contract requirement. Later, Ruger ordered up some with their own medallions as an option.
The rubber grips with the medallions do show up on e-bay from time to time if one needs or wants them. Same with the original wood grips.
One just never says "never" about a Ruger. They've been put together in many unexpected ways. Some have even been altered by Ruger after manufacture to meet a contract.
