How rare are the Iraqi contract Browning hi-powers here in the states? The ones with the Iraqi eagle on the top pf the slide near the rear sight. Are these grey area pistols like the tariqs? I'm guessing some could have made it here by some other means besides a GI bringback. I'm only asking because I know of one that may be for sale. All I was told about it is that it has the iraqi eagle on the slide, unknown if it is import marked, I've yet to see it in person. Is there any specific serial number block this should fall in if it is a true Iraqi contract pistol? Thanks for any help!

Some did get illegally smuggled back into the US by GI's. But they're a bit unique - unique enough to not want to be in possession of one and showing it off. The BATFE and US State Department have been working very well with the Iraqi government to "reclaim" much of the smuggled weapons.
