At the end of World War Two, the French army had a mixed stock of pistols. The Police were armed with an even wider array of various pocket pistols made by French companies, as well as some foreign pistols, mostly imported from Belgium and made by FN.
The Model 1950 pistol (also designated as Mle.1950 or M1950) is short-recoil operated, locked-breech weapon of all-steel construction. It uses Browning-type locking with the barrel engaging the slide via two lugs made on the top of the barrel, just ahead of the chamber. Unlocking and locking is controlled by the swinging link, which connects the barrel to the frame. The trigger is single-action, with an exposed hammer and a manual safety mounted on the slide. The hammer / sear module is made as a single, easily removable unit, following the 1935-vintage Charles Petter patents. Magazines are of single stack variety, and the pistol is fitted with an automatic magazine safety; the sights are fixed. Manual safety is lever at the left side of the slide, next to the hammer. To put on safety, push the lever up; to set to “Fire”, pull the lever down
How to disassemble M1950 pistol: 1) remove the magazine by pressing the magazine release button; 2) check that the chamber is empty; 3) pull the slide slightly back and hold it there; 4) while holding the slide slightly retracted, push in the slide stop pin from the right, then pull the slide stop out of the frame to the left; 5) release the slide carefully and then push it forward and out of the frame; 6) put the slide upside down, and remove the return spring with its guide; 7) remove the barrel from the slide; 8) pull the hammer unit up and out of the frame.
