I have a FN 1022 German pistol. Serial number is 20985c. All serial numbers match. It has the eagle over the swastika stamp in numerous places. It has the WaA140 stamp in a couple of places. It has an H stamp and an M stamp. It has two clips that have a very faint FN stamp on them. The gun appears to be in excellent condition. This gun also has a holster and it also has some stamps. It has the eagle over the swastika stamp and what looks like a WaA88 stamp and a stamp that looks like bdp44. The holster is also in excellent condition. What can you tell me about this pistol and it's value.I have attached some photo's but if you would like to see them in a larger size copy and paste the following address.
See answer to your other posting, do you want me to delete the other one?
Approximately 200,000 made during German occupation the 140 code being the most common. Your pistol with holster is probably in the $450-600.00 range based on photos.
Sorry about the two posting. Please delete the first posting. I have added more photo's to the second one.
Thanks for your time. I appreciate it.
Very nice 1922 but I want that holster!!!!!
Thanks but no thanks on the holster. The gun and holster have been in my family since 1945 or 46. My uncle brought it home from WWll and it has gone from him to my Dad and then to me.
You fight for that pistol/holster combination. Your uncle did. And I agree with Texasbadger on the value, unless you have the papers giving uncle permission to return with his war booty. Then perhaps $750.
Very nice kit you have there. The FN production was coming to an end for these 1922 pistols in Belgium as the Germans had a hard time getting materials to continue with manufacturing mid-1944. Your pistol was probably completed around April or May 1944 as production ended in August.

My Dad did have the papers that allowed my Uncle to bring the gun home but I have not been able to find them. I will keep looking. About a month ago I passed the gun on to my son with a letter of what I knew about the gun and instructions that the gun was to be passed on from generation to generation.
