Can someone explain the origins of the rubber forearm's for the Colt Lightning medium frame and large frame rifles. Were these aftermarket products or were they offered as an option to purchase from Colt instead of the standard walnut forearms?

When these were used, pretty much 'every' manufacturer was enamored with the properties of the material and how decorative it could be made to be - they were just an off-shoot of that, and made for an attractive rifle.

So were the offered by Colt or are they considered aftermarket?
