Default Help identify these 1911 stocks please - new photos

These appear to be walnut and came on a 1918 USGI colt that was otherwise not messed with. I don't think they are USGI stocks but I don't know enough to say for sure. Can anyone tell me more about them? Thanks

Here's a grip picture from the coolguns 1911 pages. Hope these help a bit..

They look like 1930s commercial/military colt grips but are likely modern replacements. The cutout on original grips for the msh pin seem to be more shallow on the examples in clawson's collectors guide. didn't count the checkering rows..

Thanks, I've already found the right stocks for the pistol. Just wanted to figure out what these are so I could decide what to do with them. I was pretty sure they weren't USGI, and also pretty sure they weren't pre-WW2 vintage either.
