I've seen them on GB for a lot less. Gary Cole has quite a few Brit turn-ins with an E prefix. One of his in that condition would go for about $700. Need to keep checking because he sells a lot and gets in a lot.

go to gunbroker then type fn browning hp35 in the search box and his hi-powers will pop up. He has all kinds of other makes and models, so also hit "view seller's other auctions" too.

Man, I'ma tell you! I don't know who she is, Wife, Daughter, DIL, hired help, whatever, she could sell ice to an Eskimo she decides to. Every time I call I have to say "pardon me?" at least once due to being mesmerized and losing track of the conversation.

Haven't gotten a bad gun from them yet. Good people to do business with.

There's a reference to it in R. Blake Stevens' book on the High-Power. However, what I wonder is whether they were a custom-serial-number contract or just regular FN production of the time. Had they been intended for special-service use, I imagine the last thing you'd want would be a unique serial block that could be traced back to a purchaser.

(Personally I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for an L9A1....)

I could be wrong....but; I don't believe the British SAS is the 'Secret Service' (?).

The S.A.S is the 'Special Air Service'....an elite combat, all-volunteer group who know how to kick serious butt !!

James Bond was Secret Service.........

Stevens' book just says "special British Service use, including undercover MI5 units".

There's also a secretive and too-dirty-for-duh-USA(?) division of large metro/provincial police depts. in the UK (& Commonwealth nations) known officially (if somewhat cryptically) as 'Special Branch' :devil: ... "anti-terrorist" in nature... as in the non-White muslim banging Princess Di is a "terrorist"... or as in "my college-age daughter is shagging a Frenchman, he MUST be a 'tewowist', DEport him!"... nudge-nudge, wink-wink... :cool:

Coming from the guy who took the bait when I posted pics of X3 handguards I "found at a garage sale."
