    Hello all, I been window shopping for a while on everyone's favorite place, Gunbroker, and have been looking at one of these. From what I have been able to learn is, this is their all steel, both slide and frame model. Has anyone had one of these, and can tell me the pros and cons of it?

    Yes, I know they are not in production anymore, but most of my collection is like that. :)

    Moshin. I owned one in 1999. Got it new for $215. It is a heavy well built weapon. I have two mags still. Gave the gun to my brothers kid many years ago. I never had an issue with it. Just solid steel and heavy. Very nice blued job also

    Fairly well made all steel pistol but everyone I have looked at has a trigger pull so heavy it's off the charts!

    If you can, try before you buy!

    Well, being its on gunbroker, and the seller is about 5 states away, I can't be doing that. But, I think you for the info on them. Its hard to find info on the all steel ones.

    Trigger pull will be heavy. It’s a cosmetic copy of a walther, but the guts are more like a makarov. Fixed barrel, as i recall.

    Should be accurate and dependable.

    I use to check them out at the local gun shops and at gun shows trying to find one that had a halfway decent trigger on it. Never did but there are hammer spring packages from Wolff Springs that could alleviate some of the heaviness with the trigger. Recoil may be a bit more noticeable due to the straight blowback design but the all steel construction may help offset that somewhat. Let us know how things go with your getting one.

    Will do. :) Btw, is $275 a fair price for one now a days? Looks to be in excellent condition.

    I have the PP version in 32acp and the PPK version in 380.

    IIRC correctly, the 380 is steel, but I could be wrong. I am having coffee before I leave for work and don't have time to dig it out of the safe.

    They both have stiff DA triggers but okay SA. Neither one of them has malfunctioned or given me problems. The 380 has noticeable recoil, but not terrible.

    I won them for about $250 apiece on Gunbroker bids in the past few years. I've also had an FEG Hi-Power copy since the late 1980's. None of them has ever given me any trouble.

    I have the one in .22LR. All steel and some of the deepest bluing I've had on a gun. Got t back in 2013 for two bills. Excellently-built. I'd probably pick up one in .380 if it was in as good condition for the price you're seeing, or maybe a bit less.

    So, in your opinion, is $275 a fair price for one now, in 380?

    If it looked nice I would pay $275 plus whatever. Mine has treated me well.

    I've owned several FEG's over the years - mostly the aluminum framed ones. Currently have a 22 and it's shoots like a house afire.

    Don't remember what I paid for it but it's the third on - got talked out of the other two by LEO friends

    Pretty much agree with all that has been said. I have over a dozen different FEG handguns and have no problem recommending them. I will say that they are actually so much like a Walther PP internally that the gunsmithing video I bought is for the FEG PA63 and the Walther PP. They use the FEG throughout the video. Many parts and parts kits on GunBroker and some parts will work from other FEG models. I will add though the parts are not interchangeable with the Walthers.

    I'm easy. I'd pay $275 for that. :)

    Yeah, I would go $275 for that one, provided the interior in as nice of shape as the exterior is.

    I picked up a FEG AP .32 cap a few months ago. The DA trigger pull was awful so I decided to try a Wolff PA63 mainspring pack. I swapped the stock spring for the 9 lb spring and now the DA trigger pull is comparable to my Beretta 92FS with the D spring installed! Zero light strikes in over 500 rounds of Geco 32 ammo. The pistol is superbly accurate, has 22lr like recoil and it uses PA63 mags!

    I picked up mine from this seller on Gunbroker, for less than $200 a few months ago.

    That would be a neat find. For some reason, I like the .32ACP round, especially in a steel gun.

    i lucked into winning a new sig p238 on gb late last year for $300. i would pass on the feg, only because i would try to find something newer with better after sales support, and easier to find extra mags, for a similar price. a bersa is quite ok at less, a sig is great at more, than $275. an out of production, obscure semiauto pistol with one mag finds its way to the dark corner of a gun safe soon enough. please don’t ask me how i know this migration to be true.

    You're writing as if he said he's making this a carry piece. He might just be a collector. From his opener:

    The P238 is a great carry piece, and I actually do like the .380ACP round in guns that size (I own the Bersa you mentioned.) For $300, I would have gone for it, too, but not as a "collectible."

    I have three FEG's and three Stars. They are just range toys. However, all of them function perfectly. They wouldn't be my first choice for SD, but I would prefer one to a Hi-Point.

    Here's a bad picture of my FEG BHP clone. I don't even know how many thousands of rounds I've put through it over the past 30 years.

    I am thinking of making it a carry piece in the near future, I just like older firearms. Less plastic, or mim parts. Steel, or aluminum/titanium alloy is acceptable to me.
    Can't stand plastic or polymer, wood and steel are my go to materials.
    Yes, there are new handguns that are smaller, lighter, cheaper, but no history to them, no soul you might say. I like classic characteristics to each of my firearms. Like my Star Super, Star BM, Beretta 70s in 22. lr, and my newest one, a Daewoo DP51.

    I like all-steels, too. I've carried my Bulgarian PM quite a few times. I also have the Super B, CZ70, Radom P64, and probably a few others I'm forgetting. I've even gone around with an all-steel "GI-type" 1911 a few times lately. I just can't argue against the upsides of the newer polymer ones for concealed carry, as much as I'd sometimes like to.
