Default 7.65mm [.32] AP MBP FEG made in Hungary



Advertise Here

7.65mm [.32] AP MBP FEG made in Budapest Hungary imported by C.A.I. Georgia, VT.

This is a cold war manufactured gun. I believe made in 1971 if I am reading the correct two numbers of the correctly. I believe the last two digits are the year. [If anyone knows for sure please correct me.]

This gun is in excellent condition. I only have $200 in it. [LOL maybe for a used .32 that is too much.]

Is there any value except for the novelty?

I picked it up because I had about $100 in .32 auto ammo but no semi-auto .32 handgun. I do not know how it shoots yet but it is in excellent appearance condition.

I know many of you do not like the caliber. So aside for that knowledgeable comments are appreciated.

It's a gun, better than nothing. 32 ACP better than a 32 S&W.

Thanks for the link. Looks like a got a better than average deal but no steal. It also seems for 32 ACP they are common enough.

I have 5 grandchildren to pass guns down to and I like having different guns.

Thanks for the reply.

I agree. One thing the Soviets et al did was make thing heavy. Even their space hardware was heavy.

.32 auto is a handy trail gun for making a nice meal out of rabbits and grouse.

There have been a couple of good posts here on the .32.

The FEG is an East-bloc knockoff of the Walther PP, overall a decent design and sturdy.

I don't know whether it has a different magazine than the Walther, so if you can find a spare magazine or two, that would be a good idea.

The gun will work fine with European factory FMJ ammo such as Fiocchi, RWS, Geco or S-b and will probably last longer than you and your kids.

I shot it for the first time today. Loading the mag is a bear. It has toughest spring I have ever come across. It shot and operated just fine. There does not seem to be a problem with the mag. But, either something is wrong or I must figure a better way to load the mag.

Does your FEG have the aluminum frame? Their 9mm Mak did...

Yes, but over all it is heavy.

Yep. Kind of like the alloy Walther PPs. I'd be interested in how it shoots. Those barrel in frame guns are generally quite accurate. Taking your mags down and stoning off burrs will generally help smoothness quite a bit.

I've had a box of 32 ACPs downstairs for years so I sympathize with you.

Just the other night I found Berettas in that caliber for $209. Hard to justify it just to fire 1 box of ammo!
