    Well, I'm a new poster and an old man so I can’t figure out how to post pictures. However, I have 3. I'm trying to ID a pistol a friend gave my wife (Inherited from father who states he got during WWII from a soldier). Its OLD and has the following features:

    1. The recoil spring is above the barrel

    2. Might be a .32 or .35 Caliber

    3. Resembles an old Browning FN 1900 but slide action is different

    4. Has a slide action like a S&W 1913 .35 Caliber

    5. Has “GA” or “AG” on the plastic black grip. (Guessing German Arms or German/Austria)

    6. Has what appear to be German Proof (Eagle/Falcon) Marks on Barrel, Slide & Frame.

    7. Serial #1714

    8. Is 3 part: Frame, Slide Action that separates from upper barrel and upper barrel recoil spring

    9. Has an exposed trigger bar/trigger connector that touches the side of the trigger
    If anyone can help me ID this pistol I would greatly be appreciated. I can also send pics to an email if I have one. Thanks

    That may be Italian Armi-Galesi-Brescia-Brevetto ????

    Thanks for the heads up. Never heard of that manufacturer. The pistol pics I find have similar features but I can't find one with the recoil spring above the barrel. I'll keep looking though thanks

    Well, it took nearly a month but I figured it out. It's a rare Armand Gavage. Never heard of it and was nearly impossible to find. Based off the FN Browning 1900. Only 1500 produced.
