    Did you research the date of manufacture?

    Yep -- FN is pretty good about making that stuff available -- it is serial number 245PT13xxx, meaning that it was "born" in 1986.

    Very cool pistol - and if I didn't have one in a very similar vintage, I would be having you come across the river!

    GLWS!

    Fun facts re the Hi-Power: it was John Moses Browning's last design, the successor to the 1911, the original high-capacity double stack 'wonder nine,' used by the armed forces of over 50 countries, in constant service from the 1930s to the present day, and the only handgun to be used by both sides during WWII.

    p.s. If you are a FN or Hi-Power collector, please see my other listings, as I have just listed a 60s era "T-Series" Hi-Power. This one is from the absolute best period of production and one hell of a vintage firearm.

    Ok, to help out, if any WA buyer wants this, my shop will do the transfer for free.

    Only because I'm a sucker for old Brownings! Good luck with the sale, let me know if I can help!

    Tomoizle, I found your listing, and it looks like a really nice shotgun, but I had been thinking more of trades for other handguns -- I'm pretty good on long guns as of now and have more 12 GA shotguns than I can really justify at this point.

    I do appreciate the offer -- it is a really nice looking Browning.

    p.s. I tried to send this via PM, but your inbox is full -- you might want to delete some messages to free up some space.
