In 98% mint crisp condition, we have an exceptionally nice 1951 FN High Power Pistol as likely issued to the West German Police. The pistol is all matching and has upgraded sights a feature seen on some of these Police pistols. This substantially improves the sight picture and makes this very shootable. This is the classic early cold war era FN High Power rig and at the time it was certainly the number one choice of many countries and agencies including our CIA as the preferred sidearm. After WWII Germany was not allowed to produce handguns domestically so they went with the best handgun that they had employed during the war as their new Police Service Arm.
This is a particularly fine example it shows little use or wear, and is extremely attractive with a mint bore as well. High powers will be one of the hottest pistols this year and if you are looking for one that is a top collectible that could do double duty in a defensive role this is certainly a fine choice. Certainly one of the best 5 pistols of the 20th century.
