In 96% very sharp condition, we have a top example of a December, 1941 Nazi occupation production WaA140 proofed FN Tangent Sight High Power Pistol. This pistol was made right at the transition from the WaA103 proofed pistols and is one of the earliest known WaA140 inspected guns. The pistol is all matching with a mint bore as well and really nice looking walnut grips.
The FN made High Power Pistol was rapidly put back into production by the Germans after the FN Factory in Liege, Belgium, was seized in May of 1940. These Nazi occupation Pistols were issued extensively to the Waffen SS as they could not source guns directly from the Regular Army. There are many photographs of its use in action by these forces, especially on the Russian Front. Among the fighting men of many nations it was considered to be the most prized handgun of the European Theater as it had a 13 shot magazine and ran like a Swiss watch, which is to say it did not jam. This is certainly a top example of one of the most famous pistols of the last century.
