The grip panels are made of butaprene-type hard rubber with sharp diamond checkering and a silver with black Ruger eagle medallion inlaid in the left grip panel. The trigger is grooved and has a 3/8 inch wide curved finger surface. The magazine release is located at the bottom of the grip behind the base of the 9-shot magazine. The Standard Model Pistol will be shipped in the two-piece Single-Six cardboard box it had been stored in along with its original Guarantee Card and an appropriate instruction manual.
