    Will the threaded Browning HP barrel fit the Fm 90 Argentine?

    Will the Browning Hi Power Threaded and Extended from EFK FireDragon fit on the FM 90 Argentine?

    I am currently looking for a threaded barrel that will best fit the Fm90 Argentine and the best I found so far is the EFK FireDragon 9mm Browning Hi Power threaded barrel.
    I am posting this in order to get info if the "threaded" barrel made for the Browning High Power by FireDragon (shown here) http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/39/pix002041878g.jpg will fit on the Fm90 argentine.

    Here is comparison
    It looks like the Browning HP threaded barrel looks fairly close to the Fm 90 4-5/8in barrel?

    Even though the FM 90 is a copy of the Browning Hi Power, there could be dimensional differences that wouldn't be obvious in photos. A few thousands of an inch could make a big difference. Even if it were an exact copy, the barrel would probably need minor fitting. The only way to really find out is to purchase one and see how it fits.
    I once tried this with a Beretta 92 and even though the barrel fit and functioned properly, the slide closed a little too far foward on the frame.

    I seem to remember that there can be dimensional differences between old BHPs' barrels and new ones in the size of the opening for the under barrel slot (I don't know the right name for it). Depending on the generation of BHP the FM is, this could be an issue. I think that the FM90 is of the newer design and dimensions. Just remember that "drop in" means you need a gunsmith and "gunsmith fitting needed" means you need a mechanical engineer and a machine shop. ;-)
