Hello,

I am updating my FN 1903 databases and many of the contract pistol numbers will be listed in the new FN Browning Pistols book.

Please share your info if you have a FN 1903 as all information is vital, including unmarked (commercial) guns. I am keeping up with all numbers on this model due to its limited production. I am looking for the following data in order of importance:

  • Serial number:
  • Slotted for stock:
  • Contract if any: Swedish, Ottoman, Estonian, Imperial Russian, Paraguayan, Salvadorian, British Navy, ...
  • Issue numbers or added markings like inspector markings:
  • Do you have an original stock? Number? Extended magazine?
  • Original caliber or U.S. .380 conversion?
  • Anything else relevant:

Please post your info below or PM me if you want to keep it confidential.

I appreciate your time and effort.
Thanks
Anthony

Hi Anthony,
Only the FN or also the Husqvarna ?
I have 2 FN and 4 Husqvarna.
Hi Nolle,
Husqvarna only if the slide is marked "BROWNING'S PATENT" or "SYSTEM BROWNING"

Also do you have the Turkish number on 37213? or can you post a quick photo of the Turkish number?

Thanks!

Maybe of interest to you that your Ottoman 1903 has issue number 7713 (numerals read from left to right in Turkish).

Thanks!
