SOLD - Tangent Browning High Power - Early E/103
3/20/17 - This is a very collectible and getting hard to find, early Nazi High Power. The waffen 103 proof mark was only used for a short period of time soon after the Nazi's took over the Belgian factory in 1940. It has the Tangent side (meaning adjustable) which was later eliminated in order to cut costs. The gun has all original finish which covers about 94-95% of the gun but much of it is oxidized - turning brown and spotty "frosting" on the finish. This is most noticeable on the left side of the slide. The frame, slide and barrel are all matching and the magazine is also Waffen 103 proofed on the spine. It has correct wooden grips that are "dinged" on the back of the left side. Otherwise fairly nice grips. The bore is shiny with little corrosion. I would give it a 6 or 7 out of 10. 9mm with high capacity magazine. A very popular gun for the military and SS troops.
