The grips are Hogue Exotic Hard wood in Walnut. I am changing them to Tulipwood today. I have put 50 rounds through her without any problems at all. I just bought 400 more rounds in different brands, so I'll post a complete range report later next week.
You will not find this model anywhere. Like Bob said..it was a special pre-Patriot run. It has a Pointman Major slide machined with an external extractor just like the Patriots. The frame is from the Pruitt with the checkered front strap.
Works for me because I prefer a high target rib and the external extractor. The checkered front strap was a bonus. She is a beauty.
