The FL source was acquired from the German government, I recently bought one and it's great. I suspect it hadn't been shot for decades, the action was a bit stiff at first, after lubrication and about 1K action cycles at home and at the range it is much better. Absolutely the finest handgun I've ever owned, and I have a Python and have had a Manhurin (albeit a beater former cop gun) and a Sig P210. The seller said when he was putting discrete import marks on them it was the most difficult time he'd ever done that due to the hardness of the steel. Will post a review when I get a chance.
