    Anybody know much about these? I just found one in a LGS this weekend in excellent condition, priced at $299. Appears to be an early one from what I've found. I traded a S&W Model 49 snubbie for it, have yet to go shoot it. No photos yet, but if there's interest I'll put some up.

    I know absolutely nothing about them. But I have owned a couple of Israeli made guns, and from my opinion they seem to be pretty high quality in general.

    Do you which version you have? Faeem MKIs were made by FEG in Hungary and imported to Israel and the MKII and MKIII designs were the actual ones made in Israel if I remember correctly.

    Do you have any idea when it was made? They redesigned it 2-3 different times.
    Everything I know about them, shows the are excellent shooters.

    Finally popped a few photos. The lighting/flash kinda makes it too shiny, it's actually a nice deep blue. I've got the grips off of it now, stripped that hideous dark varnish off and going to go with just tung oil. Serial # is 1082, so I'm thinking it might be an early version?
