The FN 1922 remained the Bahnpolizei’s standard sidearm until it was replaced by the Sig-Sauer P6 in 1978/79.

    The Bahnpolizei did not fool around. (No German cops did) In 1972 my ex-wife was returning from a shopping frenzy at the big PX in Frankfurt. There was some kind of commotion and a couple of Bahnpolizei were chasing some guy along the platforms in the Hauptbahnhof. One of the cops yelled for him to stop twice, "Halt oder ich schieße!" He did not yell a third time. She said the cop fired once, the guy went down and they were all over him.

    She didn't know what it was all about, but she was certainly more subdued around German cops after that.

    This "US Zone" was one of my first FN1922 grabs awhile back...
    the one in Vanderlinden's book is 134257 so these were probably in a block?

    and a West Berlin police "British Zone" recently added to the stable...

    This thing has been hangin' around a while. I got it for $500 below the low book price. I reckon it is a high book pistol.
    I would appear to be the nephew of the one ei8ht posted. It also has the wooden magazine base.
    It is a 1917 DWM.

    From what I just read. They were used in the Kingdom of Morocco after WWII.

    So I guess you meant Moroccan.
