That's a sweet pistol Winds. It is the 1922 variant and it looks to be in very nice shape. Clean and lube it and then go shoot it. It's a nice slender pistol and is perfect for pocket carry. The .32 was carried for many years and it did the job. However, as always with such a small caliber, shot placement is the key. The FN Brownings were very well made and it should be quite a smooth action.

Nice Find!

I think the little nazi eagles add to the value.

My Dad gave me this pistol. My brother got an old Marlin bolt action .22. I had NO IDEA that was a Nazi symbol. I'm falling in love with this pistol.


Can anyone tell me the Model number and maybe a monetary value? Though this pistol is never leaving my ownership except for when I pass it on to my son.

There are some on Gunbroker, but i'm not sure of the average selling price.

Nazis used that eagle, but it seems like a whole lot of other groups have to (Alexander the Great, Napoleon, etc.).

I'll go out on a limb here and say it probably wasn't carried by anyone in Napoleon or Alexander the great's armies...

Almost assuredly Nazi.

That has been decided. I posted pictures previously of close ups of the markings on the gun. It has Nazi markings on it. I didn't realize that's what they were.
