I went to the official website of Ruger, for ordering Cocobolo grips and a holster, but they do not do the pieces of weapons ...
So I went to the dealer near me. I received my grips cocobolo in October ...
It's long but I have no choice.
My MK III 512 has some aftermarket parts in it. I replaced the hammer with a VQ MK II hammer and hammer bushing. That eliminated the mag safety. I also replaced the sear with a VQ sear, and replaced the trigger with a Marvel trigger. I also replaced the rear sight with a VQ rear sight and serrated the front sight. I got very nice, checkered wood MK II grips from Brownells that I modified for the MK III with a Dremel tool. I also drilled and tapped the mag release and installed a 1911 mag release extension button. I also lightly lapped the barrel with JB Bore Bright to reduce the tool marks on the lands, then I broke in the barrel with hundreds of rounds of copper wash high speed stuff.
Now it shoots beautifully.
I did the same thing to my MK III Hunter. I like it a little more for shooting with two hands. One handed, I prefer the shorter sight radius of the 512.
