This benchmark rig selection holds fond memories for me as it took me over one year to find/acquire this example in 1965 when 30 or 40 table shows in the courthouse basement or near-by school house had more pistols in that one show that what one could find today at the SOS. Trust you will enjoy it as much as I have in owning it for these long years.

144.77 KB Even though with the tangent sight , the pistol is about as close to having a stock slot example that I have observed based upon its serial number. The end of the stock slot version must have occurred shortly before this example.

Huggiebear,
I just sent my first message on my old FN and hope you can shed some light on it for me. I also have an FM .32 1911 and original holster in nice condition, a Sauer & Son Nazi .32 with holster, a Mauser .32 HSC with holster and extra mag., old .32 Colt Auto, an artilery Luger with ground off stock lug (a shooter only), a WWI Colt, 1911 with the Canadian holster (a civilian issue purchased by my Uncle, a Lt. w/ Canadian forces) I gave my daughter a .32 PPK (prewar sorry) Enough said for now.

There are two versions of pistols in the Estonian contract.

ESTONIA CONTRACT
500 meter tangent sight
Stock slot
*/E inspector
Round barrel cam slot
E.V. on rear of grip strap
E.V.= "Eesti Vabariik" for Republic of Estonia (Military)


ESTONIA CONTRACT
500 meter tangent sight
Stock slot
*/E inspector
Round barrel cam slot
K.L. on rear of grip strap K.L. = "Kaitse Liidu" for Civil Guard (Police)


The E.V. pistols and the K.L. pistols are in the same serial number range.

For whatever reason, ober the years I have seen more "EV" marked Hi-Powers than "KL"markked Hi-Powers.
