bad when compared to the Portugese models but not near as slick as the originals from FN.
I've haven't had a Turkish HP yet but if they are like 1911s from there they have a lot to be
desired with internal polishing of frame and slide.
@Drm50 And when did they start farming that work out to Portugal? I am interested to know at what date the quality of the FN guns dropped so I know which ones to buy. Also please enlighten me to which Hi Powers Browning manufactured because as I understand it Browning never produced a Hi Power. EVER
