Hey folks, first post on this forum. I've recently ordered a Taurus Model 66, which seems like an amazing firearm. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the rubber grips, and I'm not fond of the existing grip market for Taurus revolvers. I do really like these grips for the Ruger GP100 (http://picturearchive.gunauction.com/6110185354/9897304/acf67a.jpg). It's hard to tell just by comparing pictures, but they look similar to Taurus grips in terms of where the screw is, but I can't be sure. Has anyone does this or know if they are compatible grips?

Welcome to TaurusArmed.net!

I can't answer the question about the Ruger grips on a Taurus Model 66, but I can state, unequivocally, that the M66 is one stellar revolver. :D

Ask me how I know. ;)

Thanks forthe link, Miss Kitty! there are some nice looking grips there. My 6" 66 is old - from the 80's and still has it's original grips, but this will be my first summer shooting it and my hand perspires when it's really hot so I usually prefer a rubber grip then. Looks like I might find something to suit me here! I'm sure the OP will be able to, also!;)

Whatever you find out, let me know. I've got a Rossi 461 that I would love to find some workable wood for.

Unfortunately, the GP100 grip frame is different than the Taurus 66 grip frame. I have an early '90s GP100 with the same Ruger factory issue wood insert grips you show in your link, LuckyBob. Even the wood insert grips fit over the same grip frame shown in the link below.

That's a great look at both frames thank you! I notice the Taurus you show is an older model. Do the newer ones use the same square butt frame?

I wish I knew. I only have an Taurus 85 not a 66.

Be sure to let us know for sure by giving us an update when you get your 66. :)

As soon as my dealer gets one from his distributor for me I'll post a follow-up. I think I might try my hand at making my own wood grips with the help of my base's wood shop. I've got small hands so thinner wood grips might be nice
