    I have a never been fired,

    PJK INC M-68
    9mm
    Bradbury, Calif
    #114

    with 2 clips still in the brown paper wrapper. It was given to me by my dad who bought it new in California in the 70's. He told me last year that a buddy of his (who bought his at the same time) just sold his for $6K. When he gave it to me the packing grease was dried out and some surface rust had started to form on the rear site and the "stock", which is just a bar with a metal pad on it. He said that the FBI purchased a small number of these for field use in the early 70's and that there was an article in some gun magazine in the 70's on them. He also said that they were easily converted to full auto. I have since oiled the firearm down and packed it in plastic. There isn't even a scratch on the bolt where it has been cycled. My father has had the gun stored in a fire safe in his warehouse all these years. I can find little useful information on this gun on the internet and thought you guys could tell me whats up?

    The info that I have is that FEG was the manufacturer of the PJK-9HP which was a Browning Hi-Power clone. 9mm SA semi-auto, 13 round mag, 4.75" barrel, 32 oz, Blue finish, fixed sights, checkered walnut grips. It was imported by KBI and sold for $349.

    Is this what you have?

    If not, give us a full description of the gun, all of the writing on it, and it's condition. Pictures would be very helpful.

    Sam.....I don't see a 9mm carbine listed under FEG in either the Blue Book or the Standard Catalog of Firearms. Was the PJK M-68 made by FEG?

    Do you know anything about it?????

    Who said anything about FEG?

    PJK Inc is the manufacturer. It looks like a MAC 10 on steroids

    I have found that PJK was the original manufacturer of the gun. They made them for a few years and then Wilkinson Terry, also out of California, took over. It's hard to find info on this gun.

    One thing I do know is that New Jearsey hates them. :)

    Thanks for all the help so far guys.

    You're not being ignored. That embarassing silence is us so-called "experts" being stumped! :D

    I've looked thru all of my references. I even "Googled" PJK M68 Carbine and all I get is a list of sites stating that it's a "no-no, bad boy, you-can't have-it" type gun in just about every state in the Union....and Canada too.

    Google, which is what we use 99% of the time to answer the questions thrown at us. Also the library is a good source of data along with research books we buy out of our own pocket.

    Just what type of research have you done on this subject? Not every question will have an accurate answer, specially on unique weapons. If you were being ignored, we would ignore you.

    I'd say that anyone who paid $6000 for one got taken for at least $5500.

    I think it's more like a henway.


    That's a bold (spelled stupid) statement for someone who doesn't know what it is. Yoric, after reading some of your other posts, please remove the parentheses from that last sentence. Unless you can be constructive and helpful, please stay away from this post.

    I have also googled, MSN'ed, and yahoo'ed to search for this gun to no avail. I am also stumped. That's why I asked you guys. I'm not lazy, I just can't find anything of relevance on the gun. I'll still try to help others on this site when possible in a constructive way.
