FN DA "Hi Power" FN Manufacturing , Columbia , SC

I saw a DA "hi Power" at a dealer today. It was marked "FN Herstal , made in Belgium ". What I thought was interesting is that it was also marked "FN Manufacturing , Columbia ,SC. ". I believe that the slide and frame are cast. Both of the sets of markings looked to me like they were cast into the parts when they were made.
Does anybody have any experiance with these pisols? Are they rare? Were many of them imported by FN Manufacturing in Columbia, SC (my home town)?

I've got one - actually it is pretty cool gun. It is slim and shoots very nicely

It was never marketed very well and is fairly rare in the USA - BHP mags do not interchange ( I've been told the BDM mags do but I cannot confirm that)

Some people know they are somewhat scarce and want stupid money for them- at a decent price it is not a bad pistol to pick up

Thanks Larry!
I should have asked in the first post: What's a good price for one?
Thanks

One of my shooting buddies worked for FNH, they imported a few hundred of them.

There's one on GB right now for $700 -$800

That to me is max price - $600 or so would be fair
