In 96+% very sharp condition, we have an extremely rare January 1940 production Finnish Military Contract FN High Power Pistol. This pistol was from the 2nd delivery and would have seen combat in both the Winter War and the Continuation War. These pistols are extremely rare; only 2400 made it to Finland and about half of those were lost in the war. This is not import marked and is all matching and the bore is excellent. The pistol has the Finnish inspectors markings on the front web of the right side of the trigger guard and it also has the special wide front sight that the Finns installed on these pistols when the shoulder stocks were discarded for regular holster carry.
These pistols were initially issued with a shoulder stock but this was soon discarded by the Finns and they were just issued in holsters. The front sights were changed out by the Finns to a wider sight that they felt was more useful on the pistol when used without shoulder stock. This is certainly one of the rarest and most sought out high powers by collectors, there are just a few in the states and most of them are import marked and just completely trashed from hard use. This is an extremely fine example of a pistol that the Finns found to be very effective and highly regarded.
