Pictures of a WW2 era FN High Power that, according to Andy Vanderlinden's book, was made in early 1940 just before the German Army invaded Belgium. The small 'c' inside a square was only used during that period of time. The early Nazi-marked slotted, tangent sight Hi Powers started in the mid-44000 SN range.
In addition to the original Belgium markings, there appears to be a couple extra proofs. One appears to be a W over the Belgium proof on the front of the right side of the trigger-guard and the other a truncated 'N5' on the front left trigger-guard.
Looking for comments about any/all proofs.

Nice pre-war High Power, is the magazine marked with the same proof marks? Can you provide a couple photos of the magazine also if you don't mind? Thanks

The magazine is of the correct style, but I suspect it is of later vintage. I will shoot some pictures and post them later.

After 500 yards, you could probably catch A 9mm round with your bare hands?
Try it and give us a field report afterwards. I'm interested in hearing about the experience. :p
