    Just bought a Browning 1910 380cal. Looks brand new. Can anyone give me any info on the gun?
    I shot it this past weekend and it is very accurate.

    It is a blowback operated pistol with the recoil spring surrounding the barrel. They tend to be very accurate because the barrel is fixed (pinned to the frame). They were made up to 1983.

    This is the gun that started WWI with the assasination of Archduke Ferdinand.

    Thanks for the info

    Thanks for the info.
    I like the gun although it is a little small for my hands. It fits my wifes hands just great.
    Should the slide remain open when the is clip empty?

    Most, if not all, semi-automatics lock the slide back when the magazine is depleted of ammunition. :)
