    Ain't nothing wrong with those FEG's:) I bought a third one a couple wks ago at the last closest gun show, along with an I.O. Hellcat. FEG's will hit the target even if you intentionally try to miss just to spite you:)
    The only thing I don't like about them is the crappy plastic grips -mainly, that thumb or whatever thing on the left. Can't stand it. Been looking for wood grips minus the hump for a long time, and can't find anything yet that isn't outragiously priced. Any help? TOP

    Check out www.marshalgrips.com , they make some very nice grips , I think they run about $50.00 to $60.00 plus shipping. I like the Zebra wood extended with palm swell. jrh55

    Oh, shut up. That's a spectacular buy and you have to know it. It shoots really well once you tune it up. I recommend using Simichrome on the slide and the grooves, too.

    If I did not think it was a pretty good buy, I wouldn't have bought it.

    Wolff has a complete spring kit for the PA-63. Maybe someday I'll get around to putting all of them in! Think I only did the recoil spring, I'm lazy.
     
  10. Great little gun. I LOVE mine. Polished up the frame, Stainless barrel, springs, and half a dozen mags for it. Shoots like a dream. Working on getting some grips for it sometime soon.

    I found some grips that will do, and were cheap. Ck out Vintage Gun Grips. I forget what I pd but it was next to nothing. They are universal, and plastic (not that shiney black plastic) and minus that thumb bump. Good enough for me. Had to do a little sanding here and there to make them fit, but once done, look like they were meant to be. Awesome:) --TOP

    I use mine for CCW. Hornady makes Critical Defense ammo in 9x18 now. Even at $200 it is a good deal.

    I saw mine last night - couldn't take it home because of a delay in the state check. Its in beautiful condition and is basically new. I have one problem, but after reading this thread I think I know what to do - the double-action trigger pull is BRUTAL! I estimate 35#-40#, and I'm not kidding. I'll rig up a luggage scale to measure it with.
    Did you know that FEG experienced excessive frame wear with the early ones but corrected that by adding Titanium to the alloy?

    Welcome to the club. I think everyone has one. They are turning into LCPs.
    Lol. Hungarians know how to make cheap, yet reliable pistols.

    Just got the green light and I'm picking it up tonight. I also picked up a couple of extra mags on GB - these are going for $25-$30 each. Now for some ammo...

    This one came with two mags, and fortunately one was the Parkerized original, numbered to the pistol. The other is blued and I picked up two more blued ones (all have the aluminum base plate) so I'm set for mags. I also got a 'Barsony' leather holster on ebay that fits well. It's a right-hand 'pancake', forward-cant with belt slides and thumb-break snap. I haven't taken a picture of it yet - this is the auction picture, and the wood grip blanks were not mentioned or included. That's okay, because if I wanted any grips they would be Marschals anyway. BTW, that is the original serial-numbered FEG box, and I've already fixed the corner.

    Picked up a box of Fiocchi 'Pistol Shooting Dynamics' ammo today at the LGS. This is beautiful FMJ ammo and is spec'd out a little faster and harder-hitting than normal. Its about $17-$20 a box/50 depending on who you get it from. I also ordered 200 rounds of Silver Bear JHP at about $13 box/50. I won't be shooting this a lot. Basically to check the aiming and function with carry ammo, and maybe one or two magazines a year, so 250 rounds is plenty for now.
