    I have a WWII Browning highpower 9mm W/fixed sights. The blueing is in rough shape and the wooden grips have no luster, but mechanically the gun is in great shape and fires as good as any new wepon I own. It has three German Eagles standing on top of swastikas that are clearly visible on the bolt, slide, and one on the frame. I have no clue what this is worth, do any of y'all have some idea of it's value, if any ?

    It sounds like a P35 made for German forces on Belgium machinery. It was prized by and used by the SS and German parachute troops. Total production was less than 320K. It's likely what was called a third variation and is worth from 300 to 1200 dollars depending upon condition. Check and see if there is slot in the rear grip and a funny looking rear sight. If so, it's a first or second variation and may be worth quite a bit more. See if there is a serial number on the slide and/or frame.
