I just got two older handguns.
The first is a Helwan 9mm made in egypt it also says Intrac Knox,TE.
The second is a Victor Bernedo model 765 automatic pistol. The only other number on it is 801.
Any ideas as to age/value?
Thanks in advance,
James

be really careful with that Helwan, I had one 10 years ago, after buying it and went to the range with a box of Winnie ammo, after about round 10 I noticed the gun was not cycling, I looked down and low and behold the slide had bowed on both sides! Scared the shit out of mine, and I went and returned the gun( had to make a big stink)

Intrac was the importer. They are located here in Knoxville and imported a lot of mil surp weapons. Probably was imported as early as the mid 80's up until maybe the mid 90's, if not later.

The Victor Bernedo is a Spanish pistol produced between WWI & WWII. Chambered I believe, for a 6.35 mm cartridge which is basically a .25 auto, fed from a 6-round magazine.

Does it have a 2-inch barrel?

As to value, I haven't a clue.
