RARE MINT Lithuanian Police FEG Highpower Pistol in 40S&W
This is a rare pistol! Back in the late 90's a very small numer of these were imported... Some sources claim less than 300, Other sources say closer to 1000. Whatever the case, this is a STUNNING weapon! A clone of the Browning Highpower, this was made by FEG of Hungary for the Lithuanian State Police. They are a bit unusual in two respects. The first is they have a high level of fit and finish. Higher than traditional FEG clones. The high polish finish has led some to speculate these may have been intended as presentation pistols, or for issue to higher ranking officers. The bold markings and Lithuanisn Shield lend some merit to this theory. They are stunning in person, and pictures do not do them justice.
The second odd feature is the locking system. FEG went with a Smith & Wesson style of lock up instead of the Browning system. This was done to handle the higher pressures of the .40 Caliber cartridge. Browning on the other hand used a heavier frame for their conversions. So the FEG .40's still have the classic feel of the Earlier Browning Highpower frame and grips,
This example is in mint condition and if it has been fired, it has seen very few rounds. The bluing, Grips, and Bore are 100% Minty!
