    Strange Diamondback grips

    Found these pictures in a for sale ad, and the grips look strange to me. The pictures aren't all that great, but they look like gen 1 without the "smiley face" around the medallion. First I was thinking that it's just another reproduction, but they usually have brass or nickel screws. Has anybody seen an original variation like this, or is it just a fantasy product from overseas?

    Looks like an early DBack from mid to late 60s. Note the nickel rear sight. Very possible original grips even without

    Interesting, I guess it's some kind of transitional variation I haven't seen before. They do look good though, much more stylish than gen 2.
