Model 1910

The FN Browning Model 1910 is a semi-automatic small-frame pistol chambered in 9x17mm Browning (.380 ACP) and 7.65x17mm Browning (.32 ACP). The 1910 was designed by John Browning, who is also credited with a number of other designs including the 1911.

The 1910 was designed primarily for Europeans as a self-defense weapon. To cut down on size Browning did an innovative thing: he put the recoil spring around the barrel instead above or below it. This design features became a standard for other personal defense guns such as the Walther PPK or the Makarov.

The 1910 features a single-action trigger, a grip safety as well as a side mounted manual safety, fixed sights and an all steel construction.

The 1910 is the famous pistol carried by assassin Gavrilo Princip who is credited with murdering the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, an incident that sparked WWI.
