you'll probably need to tell us the serial number, or most of it to get an accurate age out of it.

eventually Canebrake will see this & he is a High Power fanatic, he should be able to help you out

Letters in the ser# will indicate date of mfg. Check out www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-363629.html

Browning has been making that pistol in a couple of different countries since 1935. There is no way we can look at a photo with no other info and tell you what year.

Read the site I gave you more closely. It indicates your gun was mfg in Belgium in 1969 and that the C-series, as far as quality is concerned, is perhaps only 2nd to the T-Series. The later models had the spur hammer. You have a terrific Browning and there's nothing else to know. This is my T-Series that I've had since '69. They're hard to beat.

Check out this website: http://www.hipowersandhandguns.com/ This is probably the ultimate Hi Power site.

It was started by Mr. Stephen A Camp, a world renowned Hi Power expert. Mr. Camp passed on a year or two ago and we lost a fine man.
