Well, it just about has to be constriction measured at the muzzle. Odd though that most times it is a integer with no decimal.



Interesting 1973 version from an above thread and the chambers are 76mm. This one wears the post April 1971 Hungarian proof marks as well as a slightly different arrangement.

I'm curious how those 76mm chambers performed. The 1938(?) are proper with the FN surmounted by the Sankt Stephen's crest. Notice too that in the 1938 stampings the decimal is high like an apostrophe and not low. I'd say that to be a hold over from the Austrian-Hungarian originals and continued till the 1971 rules change. Does any know if the Germans had control of the Hungarian proof facility like the Bohemian ones?

Kind Regards,

The designations are for choke. All the Fegs I ownned were choked modified and full.

I started this thread with a mistaken identity of a gun-make I'd never even heard of. I bought it just because it looked like a good gun for the money even if it didn't turn out to be what I, or the seller either, thought it was.

Turns out that not only can I shoot it pretty well, but thanks to the generosity of the board members here I now a great deal about Hungarian FEGs. If you run into one buy it just for the removable ejector box; if you take the box out it changes the balance from a duck gun to an upland gun. Thank all of you!...Geo

My last Feg which I picked up about a month ago didn't stay in my possession long. My dad took a liking to it so it's now in his possession. He had the chokes opened up to modified and improved cylinder. He had it out for ducks on the weekend and he even managed to hit a few. Not too bad for 86 years old.

Fegyver és Gépgyár (FEG) - firearms and machine factory - pronounced Feg-yvare Aysh Gape-dyarr. Gyar means factory.

Note: Hungarian, I was proudly taught by my folks, is considered a very pretty language for no words or sounds cause one to ever stick the tip of their tongue out from their teeth or lips.

Okay, everybody at once >

Feg-yvare (slight touch of a "y" between Feg and vare, so it almost sounds like "fedya" saying it quickly, and use a Very slight single rolled "r" ("vare" rhyming with "air" and to add a slight single roll the "r")

Ay-sh (long "A", like as in "Ape" or "A-ok")

Gape-dyarr ("dyar" rhymes with car in a Boston-like accent, and again, do the most ever slight almost silently singly rolled "r" at the end).
