It has been years now, but as the FN was $700 plus NIB, I found NIB FMs for 2-300 stock. My usual treatment was the ambi safety (for lefty), wood grips, and dropping the mag disconnect. Much like my treatment of old FNs come to think of it. The finish was not too fancy compared to vintage Belgians but OK compared to the latter Iberian FNs.
