The MAB model D was a pistol produced by MAB (Manufacture d'Armes de Bayonne) from 1933 to 1963 (.32 ACP); it was inspired by the Belgian Browning FN pistol 1910/22.The MAB D was intended for police and military use. It was used by the French Army and police before and after World War II. After German forces occupied France in May of 1940, the MAB facility was maintained and the Model D was adopted for use by the Wehrmacht (German army) as an “alternate standard”.
