Some sellers dont have a clue about what they are selling and then some will say anything to make the gun sound more interesting.

I guess you could also make the case that all auto mag grips are rare cuz there just aint many of them. 

Dont know if anyone can say for sure if they are rare just by looking at that ad.

Seen some folks bid a lot extra to get a extra set of fancy grips and others who are not interested in anything but the factory grips.

I dont think I would bid too much more than normal just to get those grips, they just dont look that good to me.  But maybe its just not a good picture.  -Joe

Bruce may chime in, he knows a lot about the grips.  They look similar to some Eagle offered at one time.  Most wood grips crack after time.  If you have a gun with original Jurras Grips, I'd put something else on it if you shoot it.

Wood grips just don't seem to hold up on the AMP.  I personally believe that some of them work well, that were hand fitted, but the "mass produced" ones were "over inlet" to fit a wide variety of guns.

I think you are correct.  They do look like Eagle grips.  Made in India.  They look kind of uncomfortable. 
I would just email the seller and ask why he says the grips are rare.  He says he will answer questions.  This really wouldn't be my first concern about the gun but I don't see anything wrong with it as shown.  Maybe the seller has the original grips. 
 
He sure does not like California.

When I originally bought S/N B00370 it had those exact same grips on it.

I don't think they are anything special.

Eagle Grips = worst crap sold.  They never fit right.

Guess they might could be better then no grips, but not much.

Prefer plain old factory grips, seem to work fine to me.  -joe
