FN High Power, Danish Contract, M1946, Original Shipping Box, 119, I-705
Near excellent original condition with sharp edge wear, and scuffs as carefully pictured. Same condition grips and magazine. Near mirror bore with sharp rifiling. Perfect manual mechanics. Near excellent shipping box with scattered scuffs as one might expect after numerous transports over 50 years. This is only the second shipping box we are aware of, extremely scarce by any metric!
