    Hello. I am frequently asked about FEG-manufactured Hi Power "clones". My experience with these pistols is limited. I have seen a couple that were sold under the Mauser name, but they were actually manufactured by FEG, just as Browning Hi Powers are manufactured by FN. These pistols sported a polished bright blue finish and were as nice as any FN-manufactured Hi Power I've ever seen. I have seen some FEG Hi Powers that appeared finished with more utilitarian military/police type finishes. The few that I have shot over the years have been satisfactory with the exception of one of the so-called "Counterfeit Hi Powers" allegedly manufactured by FEG, but with FN-markings. Supposedly, these were sold in the Mid-East. The one I shot found its way into the US from S. Africa. It was a typical classic style fixed-sight "Vigilante" model. It was reliable, but groups were much larger than the 3" averages at 25 yards from most other Hi Powers. Other FEG Hi Powers I've shot (had FEG markings) shot as nicely has the FN-made Hi Powers.

    For people interested in FEG's, I recommend this site:

    The FÉG Hi-Power Blog

    It is the best I've seen in providing detailed FEG Hi Power information.

    Best.

    Thanks Steve. I have one of those Argentine built. Had to adjust the rear sight. Hate the trigger pull, but it is on my list of "to do" handguns.

    HP Clones

    SAcamp,

    I have Charles Daly HP-9, which is a FEG parts gun that was made in Europe and assembled here in Harrisburg, PA. USA. I have had it for the last 6 + years and I have been very happy with it. It has proven to be accurate and reliable.

    I had one of the Argentine built clones as well and the trigger wasn't great but it was a real good shooter...
