This is a fine example of a very rare pre-war Estonian "Home-Guard" contract Browning High-Power pistol as produced by FNH. In 1936, the country of Estonia placed an order for 120 HP pistols with a second order for an additional quantity of 5,338 in 1937. The Army received approximately 3,038 and were marked with a large "E.V." on the back strap, which stood for "Eesti-Vabariik" (Republic of Estonia). The second group was for 2,300 pistols and were intended for the "Defense League", as in this case and were marked on the back with "K.L." which stood for "Kaitseliit" or Defense League. Both groups of pistols had the standard slide and frame markings as well as all the early pre-war features such as the tangent rear sight and slotted back strap with stacked serial numbers. These are very rare pistols as most were stored in the arsenal in Tallinn, and most of them were confiscated by the Russians during and after WWII.
