    Old 380 automatic

    I have a 380 I received from my Father - very old. The ID on it states "Fabrique Nationale D'Armes De Guerre Herstal - Belgique" and below that it says "Browning's Patent Depose".
    Can anyone tell me anything about this handgun? It still works great!
    Thanks,

    Welcome to the forum.

    Pictures would help in determining the gun.

    Well, it better be a 380 as that's what I've been firing in it, with success.
    I'll try to get a picture to post.

    It is probably a concealed hammer semi-auto, and perhaps a Browning Model 1910. Likely has "9mm corto" stamped on the slide, which is the belgian equivalent to our .380.

    FN is Fabrique Nationale, the large belgian gun manufacturer that made most Browning guns before 1965. It is probably well made and very reliable. Enjoy!
