    Default Two Early 1900 Handguns need info on

    I have two early 1900's handguns that were my grandfathers that I don't know much about. One is a Webley and Scott Self-Loading Mark I N 1913; the other i'm pretty sure is a Baby Browning made by FN. There is a number stamped on the top of the Mark I, and has matching stamps on the various parts of the gun; only one number set stamped on the side of the FN.

    Mark I - 1578

    FN - 219552

    If anyone knows anything about either of these or can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

    This is a pretty good website about your Webley & Scott: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Your Webley & Scott is worth something (a grand{?}, more if its in firing condition) to a collector.

    Per Gordon Bruce's Webley & Scott Automatic Pistols your MK1 N serial number 1578 falls within the range of numbers 1 - 2500 delivered to the Royal Navy between 4/15 1913 - 10/21/1913. Here's some info on this type of pistol from my 2013 thread on my W&S MKI-N serial number 3800.

    Webley Scott .455 1913 MKI N Navy Automatic Pistol

    Here for your viewing pleasure is my Webley-Scott .455 1913 MK1 Navy automatic pistol serial number 3800. This pistol (serial number 3800) was 1 of 1919 (serial numbers 3691-5609) delivered to the Royal Navy in December 1914. It served through most of WWI. Close-up photos show the (19)14 acceptance date above the Crown/GR on the frame and breech-block, the serial number, the broad arrow property mark on the grip and a 7-pack of .455 ammo dated January 30, 1919 and individual round to show 1918 headstamp.
