I've been shopping for a little while for the right deal on a vintage HP, and finally found it! A 1969 C series that appears to have never been fired, or loaded for that matter. All the machining lines on the feed ramp and breech face are totally unmarred. Not a mark on the mag follower, and not a speck of rust anywhere. It had all the particular character traits I was looking for...fixed sights, ring hammer, external extractor, walnut grips, and Browning markings (vs FN). I'm not sure I can bring myself to fire this one since it appears to have never been fired. The one odd thing about this one is it also appears to have maybe been a police issue. It's been (discreetly) engraved with a number on the frame, slide, barrel, and mag...same number on each, beginning with FO. I don't suppose anybody here can identify that, can they? Anyway, it's a real beauty, and just what I was looking for.
