[HR][/HR]I have recently purchased this Browning Hi-Power it is marked Fabrique Nationale D'Armes De Guerre and Herstal Belgique. The serial number is E with four circles 8830. The dealer I purchased it from told me that it was an Israeli Hi-power import pistol, But I was wondering the origin of the pistol given its serial number and Belgian makers marks. I was hoping someone could help shed light on this pistols history prior to it being an Israeli Army sidearm. I have attached three pictures below. The pistol is cerkote grey as I purchased it in that condition, but I believe the pictures show the marking fairly well. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you,

V/R

Your pics are showing up as thumbnails only. Can't tell much. Is it an internal or external extractor?

It's an internal extractor FN HP from the early '50s. If it's Israeli there should be some small Star of David marks on it.
