Just curious- What do you think of the "FM" versions? Saw a hard chromer locally for about $400....
Just about any Kimber.
I find the FM Detective intriguing. A compact BHP pistol with a lot of good features.
My BHP is a 1989 Belgium/Portugal model and the only one I have any real experience with. Yes, I do like it, but what's not to like. (Trigger job and mag safety removed.)
Other than the collectible value being a tad lower on the Argentine models made by, FM (Fabrica Militar de Armas Portatiles Domingo Matheu) the Southern hemisphere pistols will serve you well.
