    Default A couple of FN 1900

    Hi!
    I thought I should show you a picture with a couple of FN 1900.
    One blued and one nickeled.
    Caliber is 7,65 mm Auto(32ACP), the magazine takes 7 rounds.
    A robust gun that wont let you down.
    They have a bit of that historic feel to them.

    Anyone else here collecting FN?
    I would be very interested in buying some early examples of grips for this model.

    Best regards

    Great looking FN 1900s.. There are even Imperial German accepted ones for the military and police.. I have also seen one for the Shanghai police, there are many Chinese copies which are very intersting in their own right...Please show a close up of the ammo box label..BILL

    Thanks both of you for kind replies.
    Bill! I will post close-ups of ammo boxes as soon as I have charged the camera.
    Is there a specific Gustloff-verke interest or would you like to se some various older ammoboxes?
    Von Sphinctor! That Armand Gavage sure boosted my interest. The FN:s are much more common compared to that rare A-G-gun. But I see similarities regarding barrel arrangement. Although the 1900-barrel is not removable from the frame. Are you planning to buy a Armand Gavage?

    All the best

    Hi again.
    On request, here is a few ammoboxes for 7,65mm Auto (32ACP)
    I have arranged them in a vague chronological order with the older ones first.
    I am by no means an expert in this field so feel free to correct me or fill in info as you please.
    Again, if someone else out there collect similar stuff, dont hesitate to contact me.

    Best regards
