Certainly looks like an old FN.

Cheap Spanish pistol made in Eibar Spain before WWII.

"Acier Extra Garanti" means "guaranteed steel"

The .25 caliber version has a bid of $5, so the .32 caliber version should bring at least $6.

Sorry, there don't seem to be any treasures in that attic.

That trigger pin replacement is certainly Acier Extra Garanti though. :D

It would be easy enough to make a trigger pivot pin.

Both guns had pins missing. Must have liked to tinker...

The ham from the iberico region is nice.

Other complicated products from spain?
Not so much. Not back in the days, not today.
