Just to let you know that I am for real. I'm a 27 year old female US Army SFC Military Police officer. All I'm looking for is a few answers to my question as to where the origin (manufacturer and date) this Browning came from. Is it a clown or a "fake"? I've been to a couple of local gun shops and a large gun show and I don't like to be treated like I'm a dumb blond. I see the look in the dealers eyes when I show them the Browning but when it comes to identifying the gun, they get kin of dumb acting and offer me a stupid low price for the gun. This is my first Browning and I intend to keep it. My dad had a Browning he carried throughout the time he was in the army and kept it after he retired from the army. After he passed away, I do not know what became of it. Like I said, I am only trying to find information on my Browning (and that's the only name on the right side of the slide.
SFC Jane, the variety of clones, copies, builds, rebuilds, parts guns, and variations on the original Browning P-35 Hi Power would fill a very large encyclopedia, so having some photos to look at is imperative when trying to identify an example pistol. We would love to try and help you if you can provide some photos.

Welcome, Jane. I think you will find that this forum is respectful of women, MPs and most anyone else. Also, we'd love to add Hi-Power enthusiast like yourself to our merry band. The gentlemen who have already post above have a lot of expertise; I'm sure they can help you. And if sub-moa shows up, the complement of knowledgeable members will be even more impressive. Do you think you could post a picture? I, for one, who love to see this unmarked Hi-Power.
Has anyone any info on what appears to be a FEG double action but it has no markings except on the left side of the slide it is marked "Luger Compact" and Parabellum Cal 9mm. There are no country of origin , no FEG marks or made in Hungery , no nothing. it looks like a Smith and Wesson 59 type safety and decocker , serial number K00xxx . trigger guard is rounded with blond , checker wood grips. Found it in my dads old trunk after he passed away.
I have a P9 that has been stamped as a PJK-9HP. If in doubt, ask and I'll post pictures. email@example.com
Yes that is the case in many instances. P9 is the FEG factory model designation, PJK-9HP is the Kassnar/KBI import model designation. Supposedly the PJK is after Michael Kassnar's wife, Pamela J Kassnar.
I have an FP9 (ribbed) and it is also marked PJK-9HP.
You should sign up and join the forum. A lot of knowledge and great Hi Power and clone enthusiasts here.
