PMK-380

On Black Friday I bought an FEG PMK-380. I haven't had the chance to shoot it yet; I didn't even have money for ammo. I'm just wondering if anybody knows anything about this model, or knows of any sites with interesting information. I'm having a hard time finding anything. I've seen it referred to as having an aluminum frame, but mine is steel. Anywhere to get parts? It's not listed on GunpartsCorp., but whenever I try to look for information, I see it listed, along with a few other models (AP9; SMC-380) as being part of the PA-63 family. Is there any parts compatibility between these models?



Sorry I don't have a better pic. I didn't have a real camera handy. Some previous owner painted the grips red. My original intent was to repaint them some other color, but the red's grown on me a bit, so now I'm not sure.

Keep us posted, but it's sure to malfunction until you correct that problem with the grips Regards, G>M>F>

If it has a steel frame, more than likely you have a Interarms imported APK-MKII instead of a PMK380. All the PMK380s I have seen were aluminum-alloy framed instead of steel.

I used to own an R-61 Feg. It had an aluminum alloy frame, but otherwise was very similar to the PMK. It was completely reliable and accurate. The DA trigger was heavy, but the SA trigger was pretty good. The shape of the backstrap just never agreed with my hand. I believe Walther PP recoil springs fit them, and some other Walther parts. If the grip shape agrees with you, I believe you will like it.

I've heard of these things being mislabeled at times, so it could be something other than a PMK-380, but that's what's electropenciled on the slide. The importer was K.B.I.

There. The paint job's not perfect, but it looks much better than the red.

PMK-380

Don't know how I missed this - I've had an SMC-380 and I have a R61 (the military version of the same in 9x18) - both were great guns. The Hungarians really improved the Walther designs with these things - much less chance of slide bite. Only thing that I don't like about them is the serrated trigger, but I am living with it just fine in the R61.







Just FWIW, the SMC-380 (bought new - think it cost me $180) was supposed to come with the ti/al frame, like the R61 used. Yet the one that I got from KBI, clearly marked SMC-380, had a steel frame. Go figure. (The Hungarians have a steel-framed version of the gun - think it was called the BR61.) Anyway, I wouldn't worry too much about what it's called - that's a great gun. Use it in good health. :)
