serial #33740, 9mm, 4 3/4" barrel with fair-good bore showing moderate oxidation but strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this Belgian Military-accepted pistol retain about 90% arsenal quality blue with some high edge wear, disassembly scratches on the left side of the slide and frame, scattered freckling, a few spots of light oxidation staining and a couple tiny pinprick pits on some high edges. The checkered walnut grips remain in near excellent condition showing just a few small dings and handling marks. They still retain most of their original orange paint on the interior surfaces. Most of the markings are crisp and clear although the left side frame proofs appear to have been buffed and the original inspector stamp has been over-stamped with another "(Crown) / PH". The finish nevertheless appears consistent with arsenal quality and the frame, barrel and slide are matching. The pistol is equipped with a 500 meter tangent sight and the frame is cut for a shoulder stock. Included is one original magazine with slotted floorplate and "(H)" inspector proof in very good plus condition showing some light operational wear. A very nice Hi-Power pistol that saw service with the Belgian military. (138569-2) {C&R} [Calhoun L.H. Howard Collection] (800/1200) SOLD FOR $1,495.00
