    I agree that a book on FEG is long overdue. They've had an interesting run, pretty controversial during the 1970s - 1990s with the manufacturing of pistols with 'borrowed' names.

    Difficult to determine.

    The Italians started cannibalizing guns to repair others when they ran out of spare parts. Others were lost at sea and an unknown quantity was destroyed.

    Very nice! It follows the same pattern as #3.
    Same numbering, hand made, numbered grips and no sign of a disconnector spring.

    The shape of the chamber is roughly cut and not polished.
