    I'd say the top one is a Colt M1911 and the bottom one is a Browning 9mm of some description.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I concur with both ID's. Good eyes, gentlemen.

    Added an example of a 1911 for comparison.

    After a closer inspection I don't think it's a 1911 Colt.

    Correct, the first one looks like a colt but could be a Star B too, a spanish pistol. The third reich bougth this model to spain and is identical to colt 1911

    Cheers

    Ah yeah, the triggers are not quite the same and the Colt has the little notch in the slide!..

    Wasn't there a ballesta molina type 1911 without a grip safety, too.
    Star I believe, but not the one pictured, which is a different shape.

    The Ballesta molina was Argentinian, and purchased by SOE in limited quantaties.

    The Browning Hi-Power is suspect to me, it is without doubt, GP35 on the main frame but the top slide is most defo not a GP35.
