One of the most exquisite Browning Hi-Power models ever produced. This pistol has a factory, hand-engraved, 'Renaissance' pattern over a satin nickel finish, gold plated trigger, and walnut grips. This pistol does not appear to have seen use and is in outstanding condition.

The Browning Hi-Power was designed in response to a French military requirement for a new service pistol, the Grand Rendement (French for "High Yield"), or alternatively Grande Puissance (literally "high power"). John Browning was comissioned by FN to design a pistol conforming to the French military's requirements. Browning had previously sold the rights to his successful Model 1911 automatic pistol to Colt's Patent Firearms, and was, therefore, forced to design an entirely new pistol while working around the Model 1911 patents. Browning built two different prototypes for the project in Utah. Of these a pistol with a locked breech design was selected for further development and testing. This model was striker-fired, and featured a double-column magazine that held 16 rounds.

The design was refined through several trials held by the Versailles Trial Commission. In 1928, when the patents for the Colt Model 1911 had expired, many of the Colt's previously patented features were integrated into the Grand Rendement design. By 1934, the Hi-Power design had been completed. Ultimately, France decided not to adopt the pistol, instead selecting the conceptually similar but lower-capacity Modèle 1935 pistol. It was first adopted by Belgium for military service in 1935 as the Browning P-35.
