Picked up the GI last week and was really happy with the fit and finish. I think it's and older one WW II 8**.

Went to the range yesterday and today to shoot. I Got around 5-6 inch groups at 20 yards, not to bad more practice will help.

I really need to get a bushing wrench though, I know how monkeys feel working with imposable thumbs !

This pistol ran smooth for a hundred rounds. I can't wait to get back ....

I never have seen the two side by side (blocky vs. rounded). But mine is rounded on the front strap, not square.

But mine also has a low serial number, WW II 8**. That would lead me to believe that it's the earlier blocky style ??? I may be wrong on this.

I have smaller hands and it fits really nice no matter which grip it is. I'm hooked on this smooth running pistol.

I have a very high 8xx serial one, and there's one a couple serial numbers higher at the same shop.

Mine has the chamber indicator. The other, barely in the 8xx range, doesn't.

There's a LOT of variations on these in the individual lots, I think.
