    Batch of FN 1903s

    Hi Tradex, I see you guys have a few FN1903s in stock that look very clean. What's the story on these? Very neat to see stuff like this turning up.

    I made a project out of a couple of these. I even changed the barrel in two. One was a drop in, the other required a lot of hand fitting.

    I dabbled with cast bullets, but never really found a combo that worked.

    Handloading is pretty straight forward, LEE dies for the 38 Long/Short Colt work, as do some other combos of 9mm Luger and 38 Special.

    Beware: if you handload, PRVI brass is thinner and lighter than some other stuff, like shortened 38 Super, back off on the powder. PRVI ammo and brass are OK, I was not able to reach factory velocities, close but I'd back down when the cases would show the Glock bulge.

    Perhaps a good time to sell mine, and the several hundred rounds of 1F Norma brass. I jumped up 8 years and shoot a 1911 now.

    @Tradex, are these under 10,000 serials? Look like Swedish contract that for some reason never get into inventory. Holsters are Swedish.
