Default Hungarian Hi-Powers

Any love here for the Hi-Power copies made by FEG? I have two, one is roll-marked in the Mauser livery and was sold as the Mauser model 80; the other is a garden-variety FEG. I duracoted the Mauser in black and left the FEG in the faded blue. Both are good shooters, both came from the middle east via a Gunbroker dealer.

Is FEG still in business? My FFL has a couple FEG's, but I don't want to buy one for fear I might need it serviced.

Some series are HP clones and 99% of the parts interchange. I have a few. I actually have a FEG that is branded as an FN, but the serial number prefix are not FN coded. these were true HP clones sent to the middle east to people that western countries couldn't sell arms to. FEG makes great weapons. Some pf the P9 series are all Browning HP, some are Browning HP mixed with S&W 59 style action parts.

Love this resource.......

I own 2 FEG HP clones. one is the ribbed PJK-9HP that is finished as nice as any browning I've seen (slightly different slide contour & rib).
The other is a FEG marketed by Mauser as the model 80SA. It was used somewhere in the middle east before I got it & refurbished it. my Fegs have great triggers, & are extremely good.
FEG went out of business in 2004, & FN Browning is discontinuing production of the high power. Even so, there should be parts for a long time, as HPs are one of the most widely used military pistols ever. I recommend them - buy while you still can find them.

Very nice Crazig. I have never seen one with the rib atop the slide before...well, at least in person.
