    Default FN Browning Model 1910

    Here's another pistol from my collection. An early manufacture FN Model 1910. The serial number puts its manufacture just before the German occupation of 1914, or immediately post war - circa 1919. Note the early style barrel-bushing. This is the type of pistol used in the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife on 28th June 1914 - an act which ultimately lead to the outbreak WW1.

    Good example of the pistol-Is yours in 7.65mm or 9mm Short? The Sarajevo pistol was a 9mm version, currently in an Austrian museum and in pretty rough shape!
    One of the pistols I picked up recently is a 1960s made example that's brand new in the box-an amazingly long lived and popular design.

    This one is a 7.65mm example, although the only change needed to accommodate the 9mm short was to change the barrel. Everything else was exactly the same.

    Cheers,
    Steve.
