    Hey everyone, new poster from Australia. Just purchased an FN Hi Power recently and want to track down the period of time it was manufactured.

    I think it was made before 1962 as it still features an internal extractor but... there is no "thumbprint" on the slide (right side/forward) and I thought all pre '62 models featured that.

    Serial numbers are not very helpful in dating earlier High Powers and wonder if this might feature a custom serial number. There should be other marks but it looks like everything has been obliterated by the engravings. If other proof marks still exist on the barrel or anywhere inside, they might be helpful it narrowing down a date. Without the standard markings it's difficult to even pin down a mfg.

    Seems like one of a kind...
