Default Need some grip IDing help if you can.

I posted these once before in a different spot and got very little traction.
It was suggested I try posting here where the experts frequent.
First set is N frame targets . Not fond of the glossy finish but figured I had better check first before I strip and oil finish.



The second set comes from the dark side and are for E/I Colt.




And both sets from the behind.



Any thoughts ,opinions or even guesses appreciated .Thanks

Oh, my. I've seen some like those here before. I can't remember the name, but I don't think you want to tamper with those.

^^^This^^^ I canít quite come up with a maker either, but they were obviously very well made by someone who knew their craft. I would keep them the way they are rather than altering them in any way, but then, Iím a fan of fine craftsmanship.

I would love to have the second pair made in K frame configuration.

I think the first pair are Sile, and the 2nd pair might be Sanderson's. If the 2nd pair are Sanderson's they are worth probably double what the Sile grips are worth.

No, you are wrong. The thumb rest set are typical Herrett's target , in the version with the "V" ribbon. I have several , and I see a lot of this style in the web during my searches.
Definitively Herrett's, ANY doubt.
At he contrary I can't identify the Colt's set, but I like it , and it is really old. For sure, NOT Sanderson. Something similar to early Ropers, but not exactly his style, neither jigs in the internal side.

I think the first set may be cloyce.
Quite contrary to the above poster and yeah I may be wrong....but so may he be.

Personally I kind of lean toward the top set being Herrett's but with a funky poly finish going on.
But in fact no real definitive answer and the bottom set being a unknown mystery.
Guess they is what they is and I just need to fill them up with nice iron.
Thanks all for opining your thoughts.

I'll go with the set for a Smith being from Hereto, but the Colt grips have me pretty well buffaloed. Whoever did them had made some grips before!

I'm going to cast my vote for Cloyce (aka Cascade Custom) ... remembering that Cloyce Edwards worked for Herrett ... not sure who influenced who.
