This was my grandfather's sidearm during WWII. Obviously, it's had some "bling" from the standard issue. A friend of mine who specializes in WWII antiques said that sometimes clear handgrips would be made from plane canopy glass, so I'm assuming that's what he'd done with this. One side had his girlfriend at the time, and the other was his mother. I think it's the model M1911A1.
