Never had one but know of a few others that really liked them-Haven't really heard any bad mouthing of them. Been tempted to get one just to keep my truck in case i ever forgot to bring my CCW along.

I bought one because it was cheap. I wanted to try hand loading makarov. But I am left handed. I put about half a box of ammo through it. The grip is very unfriendly for a lefty. I sold it later. I bought it for $99. Sold it for $199. I did ok. It didnt malfunction during the half box I shot.

I can see how it would suck shooting left handed

I've owned my FEG PA63 for about a year and have fired about 1000 rounds through it. Only complaints: This weapon is a little bit heavy for CCW. The top of the back strap and/or the sharp back end of the slide have cut the top of my thumb knuckle more than once. Lastly, it repeatedly chokes on Brown Bear and Silver bear rounds (Russian). Numerous misfires. HOWEVER, there are other rounds which it fires quite well and reliably: S & W and Hornady and others. It's pretty comfortable to shoot except for the sharp slide. It's easy to disassemble and clean. I got it cheap and over all I like it. Nice size.

i had one several years ago and really liked it. mine was a 380. i never had any problems out of mine and would like to find another one in the future. i like how it resembles the Walther PPK somewhat.
