    THR,

    I'm trying to figure out what these grips are...

    Google tells me they are likely "German Silver" (Pewter) and Brass, and the Eagle is a Mexican Eagle. The other set appears to be plastic with metal overlay...

    But that's all I can figure out....

    What are these? How old? Is there any value?

    When I was a youngster in the fifties/sixties it was common for Texas sheriffs along the Mexican border and officials in Mexico to carry 1911s with very ornate silver stocks embellished with Mexican eagles, images of Cuauhtémoc, etc. Google Texas Rangers 1911 to see what I mean. What you have are poor imitations in something of the style. They also are oddly shaped and I'm not sure they would actually fit anything. Sorry, I don't think there is a lot of value there although the ones on the right are kind of interesting.

    BTW, German silver and pewter are not the same thing but it doesn't really matter in this instance.

    Left looks like a Sig, (R) looks like 1911, maybe even a Star.

    I thought the grips on the left looked like for a Star and those on the right looked Llama-ish. My guess, anyway.

    I go with VA27, they (left pair) appear to fit a Star S pistol although it is difficult without dimensions. In any case you would not find them on any Star pistol I own, they are a bit gaudy. Right pair are definitely Llama with a lanyard ring, again size confuses how about some measurements.

    Got to agree with those who think they go to a Star or Llama pistol, like a Star Model DK, S, or BM, or else a Llama III-A or XV.

    I agree
    The grips are more Star than 1911
