    Hi Magnus,
    This serie of 1910/22 browning pistols, was a spécial serie directly ordered from the french navy to FN. The pistols served in the french navy from 1932 to 1950/52. After 1950/52 the navy receipt the new "MAC 50" in 9mm para.
    In the "Musée de la marine" you can see such a pistol.
    This type of 1910/22 is scarcely présent in french gun collections.
    Regards.
    Carfin.
