WORLD WAR 2 NAZI German FABRIQUE NATIONALE Model 1935 Browning Hi Power C&R
Made in Occupied Belgium Circa 1944
Here we present a Nazi German Fabrique Nationale Browning Hi Power Model 1935, made circa 1944, near the end of World War II in soon-to-be-liberated, German occupied Belgium. The Hi Power is a very interesting example of a WWII handgun used by both the Allies and the Axis Powers. The Hi Power was designed by the famous John Moses Browning, and brought to completion by Dieudonné Joseph Saive after Browning’s death on November 26, 1929. The result was a 13-round double stack magazine pistol in 9mm. Not only was the pistol influential before and during the war, but after WWII it was adopted en masse all over the world by an estimated 50 militaries. Its double stack magazine design itself has gone on to be used in virtually all modern double stack handguns.
This specimen was made just before Belgium was liberated by the Allies. It features a 6-digit serial number, WaffenAmts, and fixed rear sight instead of the earlier tangent style sight system. The Germans dropped features like the tangent sight, attachable stock cutout and the magazine disconnect in an effort to save on time, money and resources toward the end of the war. The left side of the slide is marked “FABRIQUE NATIONALE D’ARMES DE GUERRE/HERSTAL-BELGIQUE/BROWNING’S PATENT DEPOSE. The barrel and frame are likewise with several Nazi markings. Full serial is on the right side of the slide below the ejection port. Several other stamps of numbers can be found on the gun.
The over condition is very good. Modestly refinished and with a brass front sight added. The action is strong and tight. The bore is bright and reflective. All markings are clear and legible. Both grips are solid and the checkering is sharp! Here is an excellent opportunity to own a Nazi marked Hi Power!
