12/1/20 - This is a nice example of an FN Browning Model 1900, made in the early 1900's. This one is all matching and has retained about 80% of its bluing. There is spotty wear and patina throughout. It comes with excellent wood grips and a period-correct magazine. The bore is excellent - shiny with strong rifling. ________ The design was presented to arms manufacturer FN Herstal in 1898, with production commencing the following year (then under the designation Modele 1899). In 1900, an improved design featuring primarily a shorter barrel and wider grips was introduced as the M1900. These designations were applied retroactively after FN began manufacture of other Browning pistol designs; initially the M1900 was marketed as simply the "Pistolet Browning" (Browning Pistol). Production ceased only 11 years later, with a total of about 700,000+ units having been produced. United States President Theodore Roosevelt owned a mother of pearl-gripped M1900, which he regularly kept on his person and in his bedside drawer.
