What are the grips made of?
They seem to be wood. They are replaced which is the only beef I have with the pistol. Maybe I should strip them and make them plain brown, they may look better that way.

Promptly found another article stating all that is nonsense, the gun was only built until 1918, but about 10 - 15% of production where civilian and have no imperial markings. Also gives serial number ranges for the different sub-models of the FL.
My research said that they were made almost exclusively for the Imperial German army and that they were not made after WWI, which supports the info you have that I quoted. I could see a few being made after WWI from left over parts, but not unil 1936 !?!?
