Hello,

The reason I joined the forum is I have a FN 7.65 handgun.
I received this gun 12 years ago from my grandpa a week before he deceased.

but the only thing what I know about this gun is that it a FN mark and he bought t from a Russian man over 30 years ago.

can someone tell me what model t is and something about its history.?

Why do you ask a primarily American community ? FN HQ is just 200 kms away for you. Ask your Belgian friends :)
Welkom.

I cannot find a picture of a handgun in 7.65 that looks like that.

The hand grips look as if someone made those, as the insignia is of poor quality.

It reminds me of a Beretta design in some ways.

Possible a Russian made gun, as they liked to copy various aspects of things to combine them into one item. Yes, not Russian words.

Interesting.

The use of lots of consonants with XY and Z is seem in Basque, yet I googled Basque pistols, Spanish pistols, Belgian, Russian, Lithuanian, Hungarian, FN, and a couple of others, and ..... nothing.

That cut away shroud is a unique design. The logos do look crude, but I don't think they are hand made - for one the left and the right match pretty closely, also, having raised letters is a lot easier to do in a molding process than a cutting process.

I am struck that a lot of the surfaces and corners are not flat, like they have been buffed and polished a LOT, which is not usual for machine made stuff, but is more usual for hand made stuff.

If you do manage to identify it, please post it here, so we don't spend the rest of our lives wondering ...
