Default Help with Grip / Stock Identification N Frame

Came into possession of a pair of N frame round combat grips. Can anyone tell me if these are genuine factory combat stocks or aftermarket based on photos ? So many knowledgeable collectors here hoping someone can help. Thanks very much !
Hope I posted this in the proper area of the forum.

They are factory stocks. Some have more rounded sides and (like yours) some have flattened sides - I think these are later production but someone here knows for certain.

Those are later production factory N frame Combats. They're commonly called "flat" Combats

Thank you gentlemen - what do you think the wood is ? It’s darker than most combat stocks I see

Should you not be aware, they have value and are sought after. Nice!
