1933?
---------------
The regular production of the Hi-Power started in 1933. The Belgian military adopted it in 1935 - hence the designation Model 1935. After the adoption by the Belgian Military, FN started the serial numbering over at 1. (Just like after WWII, FN started the serial numbering over at 1.)

Look at the ejection port and compare it to the ejection port on the current Hi-Powers. This was changed as a requirement of acceptance by the Belgian military.


Many changes have been made to the Hi-Power over the years, for example: the spur hammer, the exterior extractor, the barrel cam, etc.

Also Serial No. 2 has Belgian military acceptance marks (Two sets in fact).
