Re: AH: need to know about first generation 1911 ACPs
BillP, the Germans captured the FN factory in Belgium that made the P35. They continued production for the Germans during the War. I believe the S.S. got the bulk of the Browning/ FN P35 production.
The Allies made the same gun in Canada during the war, for use by British and Commonwealth forces.
Even today the P35 is used by many armies.
The FN P35 would be a better choice for the German, since 9mm ammo would readily available.
