That grip looks exactly the same as the grip on the Hawes Marshall that I had. It's a rosewood laminate extended grip.
My Hawes was heavy also but it was pretty trim. I think that the reason it was heavy, despite its size, was because it was all forged and machined. Really was quite a fine single action.
