Hungarian "FEG" Pattern Blanks

I decided it was time for Recreator to make a dedicated "FEG" tribute blank. Actually all of the 47's will be getting a revamp with more authentic dimpling. The last run of the 47's all used the Romanian pattern blanks This time around the tooling has been redisigned to a semi quick change setup that not only allows easy alignment in the press but reduced material costs on tooling.

The big chellenge for me has always been getting the magwell dimples looking and measuring correctly.. On this batch I made 4 or 5 sets of dimpling punches before I got it coming out right.

Its hard to see on unpainted material but these dimples duplicate the original's almost perfectly in size.
