Suppressor is too tall for the sights.

    Interesting accessory.
    Good to hear!

    My Ruger 22/45, and Walther PPQ .22 and SP22 all have tall enough sights to see over the Huntertown suppressor. Those are the only other .22 pistols I have with threaded barrels. Itís not a big deal, the suppressor makes the Makarov muzzle-heavy and with itís shorter grip more ungainly to handle.

With the P4, Walther introduced the final improvements to the design, but by then nobody really wanted them anymore.

    They look bad ass with a suppressor. I would like to start collecting a bit and I think milsurps are the direction I will be going. Lots of interesting and well designed guns in that category.
    Some people just plain suck.

    I remembered what you said about the thicker slide when I looked at this one, thanks for the tip.
    I didn’t know that about the out of service date.

    Iíve been trying to find one of these for some time but they all ended up costing too much for my budget. This one didnít, so now itís all mine. This is a LNIB FM M90 Detective, effectively a Commander-sized Hi-Power. It was manufactured in Argentina in the former FN-licensed factory there. It is basically equivalent to an early Mark II (no firing pin safety and no ambi safety).

    FINALLY...released from ATF jail...Silencerco Osprey 45 and Sparrow...took about 6 months and a week. Also picked up the urban grey CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical. The CZ was a Gunbroker buy. I was heading to Targetmaster to pick it up and get some range time when I got the call that my Form 4's were in...TRIFECTA ! Tried some CCI Quiet-22 in theMark IV, but it wouldn't cycle the bolt. My wife and daughter shot some mini mags, worked well. The Osprey was great on the FNX-45, but the RMR lens would dirty up pretty quick.
