An old, small FN 9mm pistol could be at least one of three different models but it sounds like a M1910 chambered for the 9mm Browning Short aka .380 ACP to me. The other two 9mm FN pistols are the M1903 chambered for the 9mm Browning Long aka 9x22 and the P35 aka the High Power in 9mm Para. But these two models are not small handguns compared to the M1910.

Roadster, yes you"re correct. I searched the net and it is a browning m1910 .380ACP by FN. Nice little pistol. They stopped productions in 1983 . Just gotta figure out when gun was actually made. I'm having it cleaned and re-blued. Any idea what they,re going for now? TNX

One of the local gunshops has a 1955 made Browning M1910 .380 in excellent shape and priced at $350. I don't keep up on prices so I couldn't say if that is a fair price or not.

The M1910 is a very nice pocket pistol as long as you carry it with an empty chamber. It is a striker fired pistol and even though is has two external manual safeties, thumb and grip, I just don't like the idea of carrying it cocked and locked.
