Obscure brake "lever" question

For a brief time Suntour manufactured a MTB brake "lever" that was actually a twist barrel. Similar to a grip shifter. I can't for the life of me remember what they were called and MOMBAT doesn't seem to have a listing. Does anyone remember what they were called, or better yet, have a pair?

I might have an idea but do not know what they were called. These were from the 80's and were anodized a dark grey color. They were ATB brake levers but had a roundish end where they pivoted near the bar clamp end. Came and went really fast.

Surely someone remembers these actuators, they are pretty distinctive.
