7 years late in replying. These are made out of a materiel called Mazac. Unfortunately it proved to be brittle at low temperatures so official issue was later restricted to the tropics.

I think the Mazac (zinc?) material was simply too brittle in general, I have seem many copies that have fractured where the grip meets the frame.
