The other side similar condition, but no marks. Is there any ID under the grip. I have to take apart yet.

Looks like a Dan Wesson but maybe High Standard (they made a Wesson type revolver.)

That's a Dan Wesson M715-2. The "7" denotes stainless.
http://www.danwessonforum.com/ can provide additional info.

For practical purposes, it is a DW M-15...but it might well have been made for High Stanard.

The barrel contour. or more accurately the underlug contour, wasn't a DW standard on. Their heavy underlug ended square with the front of the barrel, their light underlug ended just in front of the ejector rod...like Walkalong's picture.

I didn't realize that Hogue made their Monogrip for the DW

The model in the picture is the fixed barrel version. The beveled front edge of the shroud was exclusive to them. These were made only for a couple of years and only at the Palmer plant and are rather rare.
