    Not that it means anything, but I have never seen anything like it or referenced in my Belgian research.

    I think it will be difficult to identify as that pattern was common in France and used with several pistols. I think it is more in the size of a MAB-d which I am leaning towards. The FN Model 1922...

  11. For German members: translation of part / term?

    Hello,

    I hope that some of our German members can help. I am looking at a wartime FN occupation document and am trying to figure out which part "HAHNFEDERBOLZEN" is? I am not certain of the...

    Worth noting is that you have a Nicholas Pieper manual and not the AEP manuals. This is only the second I have ever seen in more than 30 years. Congrats! It will be documented in the upcoming...

    Welcome to the world of FN. I do caution you that there is something called "FNitis", an addictive FN disease that has been out there since the 1910s and was well publicized in those days. I am not...

    Just a tip, not a comment so I hope this is okay. Make sure the barrel is tapered and not a straight barrel. I have seen a fake or more likely "made up one" and it is floating around. The barrel...

    Yes, very difficult on the open market. This is usually something that will be in old collections and is usually only sold or traded as a favor. I made an inquiry for you, I know a collector in...

    Hello Fausto,

    Stretched linen with a tight weave was the most common. The linen was waxed, an older term sometimes used for weatherproofing but in this case to reduce the appearance of linen. The...

    You have a good technique, nice rendition of tones and the macro lens keeps the subject well in focus with a good fall of so the background is out of focus. I like it.

    Sorry working long hours. I wrote an article about it many years ago and will try to find it for you. Indeed archival paper but not made in China or Asia as there are no standards. More soon.

    Great provenance. That .38 reference is one of the signs of period correct documentation. I see too specific and modern terminology used on some of the fake ones.

    Indeed so, and it happens all the time. Dealers get a holster and buy a plain commercial Model 1910. It used to be that they did not care about serial ranges, so that was more obvious. Now they...

    Your magazines are correct and are period to production of your pistol. But you have a High Power here and not a Hi-Power.

    There was not a dedicated holster for the Gavage. I have seen three various holsters, all period used. That will be difficult to find.

    it is not any type, Bubba in his garage with a barrel and a vise, molesting a Danish 1910/21 contract pistol.

    The grips are Danish arsenal replacements.
