Who likes FN 1910-22 pistols?

Hi,

Who likes these little beauties?







Lunchbox, left FN without serials in WW2



ABL stamped




Didactical ABL



Dutch





Perhaps the highest know serial with German WAa140 stamps

I do!!! Hope to some day have a few nicer ones. Did FN use up spare parts after liberation to make complete guns and mark them with an A prefix like they did with the hi powers? Wonderful pictures and collection Paco.

Those are pretty cool! My wife's boss has one that he inherited from his dad. According to what I've seen, it was among the first batch built by FN after German occupation ended.

Sure they did.
This one layed on the end of the productionline and was sold to the police of the city called "Tienen" in Belgium.
It has proofstamps and ons single WAa stamp, matching serials...

That’s cool. Now I’ll have to find an A prefix 1910-22 to go with my A prefix Hi Power. Thanks Paco. Lol.

I have a couple. A little 1910 and the larger 1922 I guess. Picked up the 1910 from a coworker in 1982 for $75 cash. Boss witnessed the tail end of the transaction and confronted me for buying drugs on the jobsite! He was quite relieved to discover it was just a firearm. Oh how times have changed. I later bought a .380 "conversion kit" from GPC, think it had a barrel, a mag and a spring. I tried it and went back to .32 ACP. I can't remember but seem to think it was not reliable or something in .380. It rode many (many I say) a mile in a small handlebar mounted pouch on my bicycle while I cycled off over a 100 pounds in the 1980s. The 1922 is Nazi marked and came with a spare mag and holster from a local auction a decade or so ago. Neat pistols, I like them a lot.

They’re neat old guns. A friend of mine has a Nazi marked one. The profile makes me feel like the front of the gun droops down slightly.

The 1910 was often issued to bank tellers here up until the 70s I believe (I need to look into this) and as such many were ummm lost.... neat little pistol, it was also issue to Police in my state (among other .32ACPs) till 1966. I have only ever seen a couple of the 1922s here, the first one intrigued me as I initially thought it was some kind of customisation of a plain 1910... No internet to go check and it was the 80s...

The 1910 and 1922 were extreme popular in Europe for police and service use.
Easy to handle, easy to clean, light and not effetive, all they needed

I had a Nazi marked 1922. Wish I never parted with it.

1910/1922

I have a couple of each. My favorite is the 1922 with war time capture papers.
