    a guy I work with has an all blue one with one mag he wants to sell me, the price is more than fair from what I see online, are they decent little plinkers, and possibly serve ok as a devoted truck gun?

    whats the skinny

    the good the bad the ugly?

    I had one in 9x18 Makarov and it was a nice little gun, but the recoil was a little sharp from the light alloy frame. Should be better in .380.

    :thumbup1:I presume that this is the same gun, but with different markings. Perhaps a couple of tiny differences.

    It was the very first gun I ever owned and it taught me (more than once) about "slide-bite".

    Excellent weapon and built like a Soviet brick.

    pretty much, yea, his asking price is fair, and I was thinking about getting it and feeding it a steady diet of gold dots for a ew range trips and if all is well stick it in the truck indefinately as a "break down" gun on road trips.

    If you like the price then I suggest you immediately purchase it. The gun is great.

    A Kel-Tec P3AT is lighter and smaller but, again, this gun feels like a gun, not a toy. It is solid and definitely feels like the same people that built AK-47's built this handgun.

    Buy it!

    I could be wrong but I thought they only made these in 9x18mm. Had one - great gun and very accurate/ natural pointer. Initial DA trigger pull is heavy (not a bad thing) and then it is SA with a nice trigger pull.

    FEG makes excellent guns. However, if I were you, I'd do some gunbroker searches, and varous WTS forums just to see what these are selling for these days, first. I know about a year or so ago they could be had for around $150 or so, but I have no clue what one would be worth now.

    Nope, they made .32 (FEG AP9) and a .380 (PMK 380) versions as well after the 9x18 proved so popular.

    One thing I would suggest is getting the Wolff heavier recoil spring, or it's a little snappy.

    I sold one with three mags and a box of ammo for around that a couple of months back (basically wanted back what I had in it), they don't seem particularly expensive even now.

    You wouldn't happen to know the difference between an "SMC-380" and a "PMK-380", would you?

    :001_huh:

    What makes my SMC different from his PMK?

    Probably finish. The standard finish for these FEGs is blued upper, polished lower (odd for a military pistol, but quicker and cheaper to make).... Yours looks to be blue on blue, so that might be the difference in code?

    picked it up today, its a FEG PKM in 380, blue on blue, fantastic shape and feels just like a walther aside from the chinsy grips, i found a fellow in the UK making wood grips for them for about 50 bucks shipped and there halla nice. im may shoot it and if it grows on me ill get it duracated black on black and put some nice grips on it
