    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
    Markings on the right side are
    Anyone have any ideas???
    Thanx Len
  2. 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
