    Just bought an old pistol, sure looks like a Browning Challenger but there are no letters in the serial number. The serial # on bottom of the barrel is 76800, markings on left side are FABRIQUE NATIONALE D'ARMES DE GUERRE
    HERSTAL-BELGIQUE
    Markings on the right side are
    BROWNING'S PATENT DEPOSE
    22 LONG RIFLE
    Anyone have any ideas???
    Thanx Len

    FN made a Challenger in 4 1/2 and 6 3/4 between 1962 and 1975 with walnut grips. They also made a Nomad in the same lengths, but with black plastic grips, 1962-74. Hope this helps in narrowing it down. TJ
