F.I.E. = Firearm Import and Export. INA= Industria Nacional De Armas (INA), San Paulo, Brazil, now IMBEL. I have never owned one, however the word on the street is that if one dropped out of your pocket and landed on the sidewalk, you would get a ticket for littering. One poster from Brazil called it The Brazilian equivalent of our Saturday night special. It seems the hammer and firing pin is especially prone to breakage. Now that's all hearsay, but I would think that where there is smoke, perhaps there is a fire.

I am reading similar reports. I helped out a disabled guy buying a couple guns off him. Guess I really helped him out.
