Anyone heard the rumors about FEG starting back up their firearms manufacturing? There are a couple of forum threads, here and here. Below are the high points because the threads are pretty long. May be one or two things that I left out but excited to see if anything comes of this.

  • Currently going through ATF approval process to import SA85m AK pistols. They have 200 or so already made. Price estimated <$1k. ETA: however long it takes ATF to approve.
  • The Hungarian Army uses FEG-manufactured SVDs and are looking to upgrade. FEG is planning to buy back the rifles to try and import into the US. Price estimated between $4500-$6000. ETA: 8 months.
  • FEG has design drawings of the SVD and is talking with Tortort (receiver manufacturer in US) about manufacturing SVD receivers in the US.
  • They have some antique SVDs that were manufactured pre-1970, but they are unlikely to be imported.
  • After they get the SA85m and SVDs rolling out, they will begin trying to import AMD65 AK pistols.
  • They are planning on manufacturing a FEG Hi Power with rails and threaded barrel and suppressor sights.
  • Hungarian army is planning on releasing surplus FEG Hi Power pistols, and they have a good chance to purchase them for import into the US.
  • They have a whole lot of surplus parts including AK, Hi Power, and SVD furniture and mags and are planning on manufacturing new parts including some hard-to-find magazines.
  • They are selling 100 hand signed limited edition amd65 and ak63 series posters with FEG cert of authenticity and signed by renowned FEG weapons designer Zala Karoly.
Edited to add:
  • Potential to get ~500 new condition, FEG-marked M52 Mosin Snipers. Price estimated <$1000. Links: 1, Pics: 1
  • Potential to get 200 FEG-marked ceremonial SKSs. Link 1
  • Many other firearms in storage: Hungarian TT-33/Tokagypt

Just remembered that he also mentioned FEG-marked Mosins and SKSs.. will keep updating as I remember things or see new things. No mention of who will be importing.

Agreed it's all very pricey, but I'm hoping some of those will come down. I think they're probably just being conservative on the prices until the plans are more firm.

Love FEG, This is one of my favorites, my hi-power clone, pic is older and does not do it any justice. Its has a gorgeous finish and lines. Notice the vent ribs?

Nice! I had one of the Hi Power clones with the S&W internals but wasn't a big fan and sold it. I'd rather have one of the true Hi Power clones. One with the vent rib would be even better!
