    Default WWI holster for Browning FN

    These holsters were found in Estonia as lot. On the button it says Equipements Militaires. I was told they are from WWI era and for FN Browning. Can anyone show the picture of the exact gun/model that goes in it (I tried High-Power and it goes in but doesn't look right)?

    Browning HP35-as in 1935-not a WW1 pistol-some (approx 8,200) M1903 pistols sold to Imperial Russia before WW1, the M1910 is a small pocket pistol type and many of the French contract Spanish made 'Ruby' copies of the M1903 were sold to the Baltic states after WW1.

    The High-Power will be too large, and also it was not produced until 1935,
    as Lithgow says. IMO, the FN Browning 1903 is the correct pistol
    for this holster - especially if they came out of Estonia.

    FN made several unusual/unique pistols in this period that were only
    marketed in Europe, and these are rather uncommon today.......

    Thanks everybody! It might come out that this holster isn't for any kind of FN at all. As I know now, it it of French origin (the button!) and might be from WW2 as well. The search is on and any information more than welcome!
