    Thumbs up FN Browning High Power M1946 – Danish Army

    Followed me home last week. Guess I'll have to keep it?
    Just acquired it two days ago, and now very anxious to expend some 9mm ammo.
    I have no idea if that finish is original or later update.

    The finish is aftermarket. They were usually blued.

    Nice pistol BTW.

    I have imported a few in to the UKicon and they have all been blued, they normally have a spare magazine with them as well.

    Thanks.
    I figured the finish was too nice to be original. But I think it sure makes for an agreeable looking piece.
    Kind of like a dark, charcoal-grey parkerizing.

    Nice, nice, nice...now to warm it up and smooth that finish up a bit. A quick thousand ought to help. Wish I was closer, I just happen to have a box of just about that amount...nice pistol.

    Usually use and cleaning will smooth out new Parkerising over time. I wouldn't do anything 'aggressive' to it.

    Smoothing the finish? Daily carry and lots of holster use and lots of shooting should be more than enough
