H017787 BROWNING 9MM 640(b) HI-POWER PISTOL & HOLSTER  (Inert/Deactivated). (Pistolentaschen)

BACKGROUND: After the successful invasion of the Low Countries in May 1940 the German army expropriated large quantities of Belgian weapons and equipment, including pistols and holsters, en masse, and distributed them widely to make up for the inadequate supply of German produced personal side arms. Eventually the Germans would also reactivate the armaments industries in the occupied countries and produce a wide assortment of weapons and munitions which were generally issued to second line troops. The Belgian Fabrique Nationale d’Armes de Guerre, (National War Armaments Manufacturer), located in Herstal Belgium purchased a licence to develop and produced handguns designed and patented by John Browning as early as 1898. In 1903 the Belgians developed the 9mm M1903, (622), automatic handgun followed by the M1906 (626) in 1906 and the Hi-Power M1925 (640) in 1925 all based on Browning’s patents. After testing and minor alterations the M1925 (640) was put into mass production in 1935.
