See The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Handguns, by A.B. Zhuk. He's got literally hundreds of these little spanish pistols listed, most sort of Browning 1906 copies, so there was a huge market for them. I consider my "Fabrique d'Armes de Grand Precision" to be superior in design, workmanship and accuracy to the FN Browning 1906, with a hammer instead of the flimsy striker and no grip safety. Even if the name and FNish grip logo is designed to fool a buyer into thinking they're getting a bargain on a 1906 Browning.
I swear by Jupiter Optimus Maximus .... in the army of the consul Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus and for 10 miles around it I will not steal anything worth more than a sestertius in any one day.
