Very nice Bill. Does the magazine matches on yours?
Hope you don't mind me posting mine, serial not far from yours. My cleaning rod has a different number though.

These are under appreciated i feel. But these late serials were delivered to the Dutch just months before the Germans invaded.
So for sure they were used and often captured and reused.

Bill and Kris,
Yours are beautiful pistols.
I have saying for years that the FN 1922 is still underrated as a collectable gun.
It has a very nice story and several different contracts that are a collection on its own.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
Douglas
