SOLD - Dutch FN Browning 1922
5/18/18 - This is a M1922 Browning that was part of the Dutch contract order for these pistols. It has the Queen Wilhelmina Crown over W proof along the top of the slide, as well as the back of the frame. There were about 60,000 of these pistols ordered by the Dutch over the course of the 20's and 30's, though a decent portion were never delivered. As it is pre-Nazi occupation, it uses 9mm rather than the later 7.65mm variation. The finish is maybe 93-94%, with most of the wear on either side of the muzzle, likely from being in a holster. It also has some patina showing through on the straps. It has correct grips and magazine, and all numbered parts are matching. The magazine is numbered on the bottom as well, but to a different pistol. Bore is shiny with strong rifling.
