Details

In 1923 the government of the 'Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes' (later known as Yugoslavia) ordered 60,000 pistols from FN with 114mm barrels and eight round magazines. In order to fulfill this order quickly, FN lengthened the Model 1910 frame in order to accomodate a larger magazine and adapted the standard slide to cover the longer barrel. To save expense FN developed a short tubular housing that attached to a modified 1910 slide by a bayonet fitting.

The Model 1922 was adopted by Belgium and the Netherlands in 7.65mm and by Yugolsavia in 9mm Short. It remained in production throughout the German occupation of Belgium during the Second World War, being used by the Germans as the 'Pistole 626 (b)'.
