Can anybody identify this handgun?
« on: December 13, 2018, 02:25:43 AM »
Hi, there's a discussion at another forum about certain handguns, I'll tell you more in my next post but in the meantime can you positively identify what type of gun this is?-

Hmm... FN Browning model 1922?  Not sure about barrel though.  Is that a silencer?

^^^^This with suppressor.

Excerpt from The Highroad forum.

"A Pocket auto 1910 slide combined with a 1922 .32 barrel leaves around a half inch of exposed barrel for attaching a maxim silencer. Downloaded rounds were occasionally used.
Since thousands of .32 1922 Brownings had been manufactured while under German Occupation , and many thousands of 1910 models were floating around untraceable parts were easy to find.
Silencers for small caliber hunting rifles were and still are legal in several European countries, modifying one to fit the Browning was no problem."

Good eye.  If they removed end cap to put on suppressor there would be no front sight as it is on cap.  so no need for rear.

Found it!  It was from the movie Dr. No.  Here is a picture without the silencer attached which he apparently does in the film.  I think I am going to have to watch that one now,

Thanks guys you've helped solved the mystery as to why Bond used a Browning in the "you've had your six" scene in Doctor No despite being issued with a Walther PPK at the start of the film.
It seems Hollywood was up to its little tricks again, substituting the Browning and hoping viewers wouldn't notice that it wasn't his Walther..:)

My googling came up with this-





PS- the discussion about it was on the last couple of pages at this forum-
