Inventory # brp_0073

DESCRIPTION: Browning designed FN M.1900 semi-automatic pistol. This blowback pistol is often called "The Old Model". This was the pistol that made both, John Browning and FN factory world famous. This model is responsible for initiating an interesting phenomenon: the word "Browning" became synonymous with "automatic pistol" in many countries all over the world in the first half of the 20th Century. The pistol was widely copied in China and in the Khyber Pass. In June of 1914 a Serbian patriot, Gavrilo Princip used Browning M.1900 pistol to assassinate Arch-Duke Ferdinand of Austro-Hungary, which led to the World War One. Belgian proofs are present on major metal parts. Correct style seven round magazine with the "FN" markings. CONDITION: Very good+ to low fine. The condition of pistol would be better, if not for the blood pitting on the rear sights, hilt, right side plate and on the back of the slide (please, see pictures). 90% of original, crisp blue remaining on metal. The wear is mainly on the hilt and on the sharp edges of other metal parts. Other than that, the pistol shows only minor handling marks. The bore is fine+ condition with strong and shiny rifling. Strong action. All matching serial numbers. All the markings and numbers are clearly visible on the metal. All the internal parts of the pistol are in fine condition, with no visible wear. Nice, original brown vulcanite grips with "FN" logo, "Image of M.1900 Pistol" and diamond checkering. Complete with a lanyard ring. Early Browning FN M.1900 pistol! C&R or FFL required to purchase. The pistol comes from my family member collection of military firearms (please, pay by check, money order, or bank wire transfer only). Serial# 1548XX.
