In addition to the Mauser C96, the Chinese Warlords were especially fond of the FN 1900 pistols in caliber 7.65mm (.32ACP). This example is a mechanically close copy of the FN 1910 with nonsense writing on the left side of the slide but having a matching barrel and frame. Like the FN, it dismounts by depressing and rotating the knurled bushing at the muzzle with slide removal disclosing an internal hammer. Frame mounted safety on the left tang. Period replacement grips. Fitted with bottom release magazine having 7 indicator holes and a fixed floorplate. This EXACT pistol pictured in “Pistols of the Warlords” text by Ian McCollum on pages 486-487.
Bizarre Chinese Arsenal Warlord Pistol, FN 1900 Copy, Documented, 7.65mm, 6049, PCA-160
Generally gray gun with minimal blue in protected areas. Missing ejector (reflected by hole at rear slide). Period replacement grips, the right panel missing a wedge at bottom rear. Surprisingly bright but etched bore with distinct rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. A true “One of a Kind” Chinese Warlord FN 1910 Copy. NOT TO BE FIRED!! NOT TO BE FIRED!! NOT TO BE FIRED!!
