Where’s the FEG?
Re: August 2002 issue, “Buy the Real Thing! Hi-Power 9mm Clones Come Up Short”: I enjoyed the evaluation of the 9mm Hi-Power versus its clones. I was disappointed, however, that you left out the FEG PJK-9HP and the Israeli Kareem.
I haven’t seen a Kareem, but I own and shoot an FEG. Except for the muzzle end of the slide, it’s a faithful knock-off of the Hi-Power. It shoots well and I have never had a mechanical malfunction or failure of any kind. I do get occasional hammer bite at the thumb web. I have also owned a Belgian Hi-Power, which I lost to a divorce lawyer’s fees. The FEG is not that nice, but it does have very good fit and finish. At less than $30...
