Pre-WW2 for sure. Kinda sorta looks like a Browning Model 1900 but the grip is too wide.

Probably FN something or other...

Well, I would hazard to guess that it was single action, based on the non-hinged, straight pull, sliding trigger. But it doesn’t quite match the M1900. I dunno, anyone got a book with early semi-autos?

Hard to tell from that angle but looks like a Mauser 1914

No, closer to the S&W 1913 but don’t see a rear hump or recess for the front strap safety.

My guess is a F.L. Selbstlader pistol.  Also known as the The Langenhan pistol, it would have been chambered in 7.65 Browning (.32acp).  It was used by German military men, and the police during World War I. The design of the pistol is also similar to the design of FN M1900 pistol.

Your right...  I apologize....  it looks closer to being an Armand Gavage made in Belgium and produced 1932-1940. Again chambered in 7.65mm (.32 ACP) it held 7 rounds.   About 4,700 were produced making them somewhat rare, if it is a Gavage that's sad since they were said to be decent guns.

Looks like a German 1910 Dreyse  7.65 (32 ACP).   Pretty common German WWI Pistol.
