Ran across this at the LGS. It came with a holster and 2 belgian marked magazines. There seem to be no proof markings anywhere except on the serial number matching barrel. it has a WAa140 on it and some sort of stylized "T" in an oval stamped on it. I do not see where any markings got scratched off. No import marks. All matching #s .32 caliber

Serial number is 6 digits and seems to be approx. 1942 mfg. It shoots very well. .32 caliber.

Well lets see if I can do better with the photos. No markings on the holster anywhere, but seems correct and period. the magazines are cool and look period also. No german markings except for the one WAa140 on the barrel.

Marking on the left one is "FN" over 7.65 m/m and the right one has a fancy script FN

Nice design by John Moses Browning himself. It is an upgrade from the 1910, which shot the Archduke of Austria and helped start WWI BTW. I find mine shoots very nicely and I've found 32ACP to be an even nicer caliber. I think Browning had a good nack for ergonomics. I have a commercial model in decent condition, but since most FN records were destroyed, I have no idea when it was made. Just lucky to have it and bought it when I did. Now you need a Colt 1903, another Browning design. I think a lot of the 1903 is in the 1922.

Best Regards,
