Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! It's unusual, but possible. However, the right side cutout should match the left. Possible that the panels were switched.

I had a 27-2 at one time that had the right side grip was almost blonde with a darker, almost black strip running through it. The left side was a darker, more or less "normal" Smith and Wesson grip color. I don't know if they came that way from the factory, were a mismatch set (target stocks) or what, but I thought they looked GREAT.

No matching lines here..
Yeah, I'm going to guess that is a post-factory-original unmatched set, although I'm seen some pretty darn wide variations. :)

Like others here, I collect S&W factory stocks/grips just like I collect the guns themselves. I am fortunate to have a shop I frequent that is big into vintage factory originals of the highest quality at fair prices. Everybody seems to want rubber grips today, and he takes full advantage of that trend. :giggle:

Whenever I pick-up a used S&W revolver with stocks that are rubber or worn or that I just want to improve on, I go visit him and trade up! (y)
