FN Browning 1922

Friend of a friend passed away and I bought all the guns. The one in question is the Fn Browning, its a 1922 in .32 acp about 75% to 80% condition. It has Nazi markings on it in severaL places. Serial # match. Made for war in Belgium? Any idea what the worth is? thanks Al

In 80% condition, it books/retails for $275 if "WaA613" marked, or $250 if "WaA103" marked.

Fn browning

This one has the WaA140 mark. Gunbroker has one for $400, of course it has not SOLD yet either?? But think mine looks better. Without the Nazi marks worth less. Still trying for a do able number. thanks for the idea. Al

they list the later Nazi production with WaA at 400
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.

Like the old adage says: "It's worth whatever someone will pay for it." The WaA 140 guns are the most common of occupation made guns, and, actually, there were more 1922 Brownings made by the Germans than any other 1922 contract, somewhere on the order of over 363,000.
