Adopted by the U.S. Army Air Forces and the U.S. Navy in July 1942 with production ending in the 1950s. Right side of the aluminum frame has the factory/U.S. markings inside a triangle: U.S. PROPERTY / PISTOL PYROTECHNIC M-8″. The serial number is stamped on the back strap. Steel barrel and checkered black Bakelite plastic grips.
Overall very good condition with nice patina on the barrel. Blued frame and Bakelite grips are very good with tight lock up and trigger action. Barrel chamber is extremely clean.
Grips: Bakelite plastic
