It looks like a homemade version of this field modified grip, but with newer, much nicer wood:

I think there's better pictures out there, but that's all I could find for now :)

I think it was SARCO that used to sell those.

Amen Frank. I had one from Sarco many years ago. I think it was under $10 at the time! I haven't seen one for years.

Frank I. is correct, I bought an identical one from Sarco in the late 1980's.

Yup - as noted SARCO - problem with them is fitting them to the gun - note the rearward position of the grip - the magazine gets in the way - I got one back then too, they were well under $10, and I threw mine out one I saw how it did not work.   Back then you could get a complete replacement set of new wood for around $30...... These are probably a collector item now :blink:
