so, i've got this pistol here with me that reads. "FI Ind. Washington DC" it's a .380, semi auto, small, thin, blued. Dad says he bought it back in the 70's ( had ammo from that time frame for it too, YIPES!) It's in great condition, shoots ok, doesn't extract sometimes. Does anyone know of these pistols? a price range? interchangable parts?

I think it means Firearms International, which had something to do with the AMT Back Ups. Which were commonly .380s. But I am not positive on that hopefully someone more knowledgeable will come along. I think High Standard absorbed Firearms Internation or vice versa. If it is an AMT Back Up, my cousin carried one as back up way back when as a patrolman. Still carries it as back up now as a chief. Supposed to be really good little .380s

not sure about the AMT part, it needs a little work to be reliable. it is indeed a nice little breech locking gun. i also tossed this into the general hand gun forum and got a answer back from BillyBanker who gave me the price of around 175-200. thanks for you help

I beleive the company was later bought by Iver Johnson. I just got the same pistol and I like it. I havn't fired it yet, but i hope I dont change my mind after I do
