Make sure you order grips specifically for your gun.
Then remove the originals and you just screw the new ones on.
Don't wench the screws down, just good and snug.
MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT SCREW DRIVER THAT FITS THE SCREWS.

There are three different versions of the vaquero grip frame i know of. Call ruger with your serial number and they will be happy to tell you which frame you have. Then you can find grips.
Installation is one screw and easy to do. Just dont over tighten they can crack

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
Also, a lot of folks make Grips for many different Ruger SA's. You might also want to go to the next Gun show. I got a guy making me a very nice carved pr, out of Koa wood( Hawaiian Mahogany). I'm familiar with it because one of my Solid body Guitars is made of it. The second set he's making is out of colored fiberglass...he did have some nice SA grips. Do you want his E-Mail & #? I can PM you with it. He's is near me, in Prescott Valley Az.

I don't know that much about the vaquero. I do have a lot of experience with the Blackhawk. Grips and other parts are not as model specific as one might think. I ditched the internal lock on my Blackhawk by bolting on an XR3 grip frame. The XR3 grips required fitting with an emery board. A friend bolted on a grip frame from a Bisley Vaquero on a new model Blackhawk. I am sure there are other parts that are interchangeable.
