    Hello Everyone,
    I am new to this forum but I can already see there is some very good info on this site.
    The other day I inherited four rather old pistols.
    I don't have a clue how old they are or what they are worth.
    I would appreciate you help.
    I am listing one today and when I have the answers I need I will list the others one at a time.
    Paramount 32 cal semi auto pistol
    fabrique d'armes guerre cal 765 French I guess?

    Thank you in advance,

    Schoon

    That's a Spanish gun, known as a Ruby. The name is supposed to make people think it is made by Fabrique National d'Armes de Guerre. FN is a world famous Belgian gun maker, so by using a similar name people would be fooled into thinking, "Oh, cool. FN pistol for only 50 bucks. Gun seller don't know what he's got, I better buy it now before he realizes how underpriced it is."

    A discussion about a very similar gun, a few months ago.

    Thanks for the info.
    I checked out the post and the only thing I see different between that pistol and mine is the word Paramount inscribed in the steel.
    So do I own a looser or is it a collectable pistol.

    have it checked out by someone knowledgeable or a professional and if its a shooter than you have a useful
    since you have 4 items, it is perhaps time to meet a gundealer/smith to help you along
    enjoy
