I think I got a pretty good deal yesterday . 1922 browning Dutch contract .380 all
matching about 85% original finish . Nice bore for $375. Has nice grips ,so many are
replaced or cracked & broken . Also lanyard ring. Any opinions ?
thanks

Sounds like a fair to good deal to me. Those are nice pistols. Less common by far than the WaA140 marked war-time pistols but more common than most other varieties of military or police marked FN 1922s. Having undamaged grip panels and the lanyard ring is definitely a plus. I assume the grip panels are pressed horn (sometimes incorrectly identified as hard rubber) and are not plastic or wood.

Thanks guys. Yes they are pressed horn. Took it to the range yesterday afternoon & it shoots just fine. I will try & get pictures soon. I know that many collectors never shoot
their guns . I,m one who does. I just like knowing that if ever needed it will shoot ok.
thanks again

That seems pretty much in line nowadays, these neat old guns are not getting any easier to find either......
