surplus FM?

Hi



New here, and considering getting a surplus Argentine FM via SOG.



The gun itself seems to get good reviews - is there anything in particular I should be wary of?



Have you had good experiences with SOG?





thanks

surplus FM?

Hello and welcome to the site. Some of the older Hi Powers were a licensed copy of the FN Hi Power but some of the newer FM pistols have been somewhat altered both externally and internally. I have no experience with them. Though I have never owned an FM Hi Power and am therefore unable to offer any long-term first-person observations, I have shot quite a few in years past. Finish was not as refined as some of the FN Hi Powers but the pistols shot fine and were reliable. I do not recall shooting any that didn't have the sights nicely regulated so that POA matched POI.



Best.

My son and I have a pair of FMs. They shoot just as well as any of my other 4 BHPs. My BHP specialist gunsmith says that the steel in FMs is of a harder. He treat my HPs in very good shape. If you don't mind a thicker finish coat (some look like it was painted on), they are a very good deal IMHO. I have seen some on Gunbroker at ~$200.
