    Very nice JimA !!

    I owned a Fabrique National P35 (Hi-Power) with Waffenamt codes ( WaA proof marks ) and other Nazi markings that

    was dated to 1939 which I sold to a WWII collector of militaria for a large sum of cash. Guy who sold it to me had no idea

    what he had...and neither did I...until I got it home and did the research.

    FN Herstal has been making great firearms for a long time. To find such a rare one was really cool. Any regrets for selling it?

    Every damn day...:D

    ...and I know I took a picture (film) of it, but can't find it.

    I know the guy I sold it to died...and the wife dumped his collection

    before I had a chance to ask for it back...somebody made out like a bandit !

    Whoever has it, I hope they realize what it is, and how much history it has.

    Yea...I really didn't want to sell it, but he made me an offer I couldn't refuse...

    I also have a Spreewerke CYQ P38 with WaA stampings that dates to early 1942

    shown in post #3 of the Vintage Military Firearms Thread on this forum.

    Check it out...

    Hi-Power imported as an Israeli Kareen and arrived as FN made and sold as at a Kareen price. It ain't purdy but it sure can cook:D

    I'm not sure which feels better a 1911 or B.H.P.
