Ruger New Vaquero, Old Single Six and XR3 Walrus Ivory Pistol Grips (A)
Beautiful New Vaquero walrus ivory grips. The lighter color outer surface is the “bark” or cementum layer, the buttery color ivory is the ivory. The inside displays the beautiful creamy core that resembles burl and is unique to walrus ivory. These will fit the XR3, old single six and new vaquero frames.
Walrus ivory core often has naturally occurring fractures, in the secondary dentine that are non structural. The fractures have been stabilized and these grips are guaranteed against breakage for life on a working gun.
Handmade from our very limited stock of vintage ivory tusks from walrus that died before 1972. This ivory predates the Marine Mammal Protection Act and is legal for non-natives (us) to work with. We buy this ivory when available from individuals, aging collectors and inheritors in the lower 48 states, one or two tusks at a time; it does not come from Alaska.
US sales only! To comply with state laws we no longer ship any ivory to New Jersey addresses and no mammoth ivory (only walrus ivory) to New York addresses.
