+1, Ahrends, maybe moradillo wood, vintage combat style grip. Excellent grips.

No, those are the Retro Targets, not the combat style. The combat style is like the single panel grip in the left of the photo below.

You can really make Ahrend's grips pop with some light sanding, and then quite a few (6 to 10) light coats of tung oil hand rubbed and allowed to dry in between. I did that to the pair on the right for a friend. I also inlet the S&W medallions for him. You can do that very cheaply with a 10mm forstner bit and some medallions harvested from junk grips off Ebay, etc. It is a very inexpensive way to really dress them up. Kim offers a tung oil finish, but most people don't pop for it because of cost.
