The FN Model 1903 was a self-loading semi-automatic pistol engineered by John Browning and made by Belgian arms manufacturer Fabrique Nationale. It was introduced in 1903 and fired the 9×20mmSR Browning Long cartridge. The FN Model 1903 is based on the same mechanical design as the Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless, which Browning sold to both companies, but enlarged to handle the more powerful 9mm Browning Long cartridge. Due to its reliability, accuracy, light weight, and quick reloading, the M1903 was an issued sidearm for many police forces and militaries.
The main advantage of the Mle 1903 compared to the M1911 is its higher rate of fire (360 compared to 299). The pistol makes up for this in lower damage per shot.
