Can anyone tell me the year of manufacture (or where to find out) of a FN Hi-power with serial number in the 30100 range - Tangent sight and stock slot, not Nazi marked.

Unfortunately no records are available from FN as to production dates.

But (without pictures) i would say that it was pre May, 1940. FN was pushing out Hi-Powers in the 44,45 & 46 thousand serial range number range in the months before May 1940.

I would be inclined to say 1938 as a rough rule of thumb.

Hi-info

Thanks for the info - 1938 would seem about right - Sorry no pics - just a standard prewar 9mm, but fitted with a set of mexican silver grips - found those in Puerto Vallartra a few years ago.
