Some FN1900s

Post by canuck »

Its been too quiet for too long in this sub-forum so I thought I'd show off my latest, and nicest so far, addition to the accumulation.
This rifle is what I consider to be one step back from being "mint".
Pretty happy to have snagged it...

I apologize for the poor photos, I really need to set up a photo area with proper background and lighting some day.

Hey canuck,

Glad you shared pictures of your FN’s. It never gets old seeing the FN 1900’s. The newest addition is a real beautiful rifle and the pictures reflect the condition. The wood looks perfect as well as the metal. It even has a complete bolt handle!

These rifles are becoming more rare every day. I am going to pass on the challenge that was given to me by our deceased member “sighthound”. He was a real friend and loved the FN’s. I think I had six FN’s at the time he told me I should try and get an even dozen of these rifles. I took his challenge and unfortunately he passed away before I could tell him that I met his challenge. I would like to say that I stopped at 12, but “packmule”, also a member, tempted me with the opportunity to get one more, so the “Dirty Dozen Plus One” was named. Jackitis was working on me at the time so I couldn’t refuse the chance to add another rifle to the collection.

I haven’t purchased any more FN’s after I bought the Daniel Fraiser customized cased FN. That made number 16 FN’s. I didn’t think I could top that acquisition so I stopped actively searching for them. I still watch for them on some of the auctions but most are not in good condition like the one you just received. I could be tempted if the right opportunity presented itself.

Thanks again for sharing the pictures. It was great to see them

Kindest Personal Regards,

seeing ONE FN is such a treat as they're exceedingly rare as Jack mentioned...but seeing a COLLECTION of them is very impressive. Thank you for taking the time to compile the posts and photos for us to enjoy.

A few updated FN database metrics which include all your posted rifles...

131 rifles recorded (which means Jack owns roughly 12% of all recorded rifles haha!)
33 rifles do not have barrel ribs (25%)
66 rifles located in the USA (50%)
29 rifles located in Canada (22%)

lowest serial number recorded is 5, highest is 4893

Very sweet collection of the Belgian beauties.

I believe that's 2 of each type with & without rib correct?

One of these days I'll get my hands on one! They sure are hard to come by.
