I bought a Hi-Power in .40s&w and I hated to shoot it. You can tweak those trggers real nice but I thought it handled like crap. Felt real comfy though. I sold it.

Have an old Browning Hi-Power must have been one caught up in the last unpleasantness in Europe has the Nazi proofs with all matching serial numbers. It came along with a holster, German belt and a knuckle buster trench knife bought the whole rig at a yard sale many years ago. Was one of those great days you fall into things right paid $165.00 for the whole deal.

Something tells me that is worth more than $165.

Stealing???? How many sales have you been to??? There wasn't like a whole lot of haggling went on I paid what they had listed as a price??? Trust me I sleep like a baby. And you will never see it on Gunsamerica.com so I guess it went to a good home if your worried about adoption.

I have a 1969 model, the last year of the round hole hammer I believe, that my dad gave me on my 21st birthday almost 15 years ago. I don't shoot it much but truely love the way this gun feels. If they made it in a true double action this is the only semi auto handgun that I would own.

Sigman, it's my duty to inform you that you will have to surrender that pistol and pay a hefty fine for having paid well under fair market value. Email me and I will direct you to the appropriate address to mail it. :twisted:

And I will sleep like a baby, too! :wink:

i've a blued standard in 9 and a black coated fn in .40. they,re both awesome. removed the mag safeties in both and polished the fire control surfaces. they both break clean w/ about 5# pull. the 9 i shoot a couple x's a year but mostly just pull it out and admire the bluing, workmanship, and inspiration that went into developing such an elegant machine. the .40 i carry. own a couple of springfield 1911,s [big brothers] and after i tweaked them they've become good friends and a joy to shoot. one's a stainless gi church gun [40+ hrs polishing, my own checkered front strap, colt msh, and trigger job] the others my nightstand gun [springfield loaded blue w/ my checkered front strap, novak night sights, colt msh, trigger work]. i sleep well.

My BHP is my lead pistol. I have 4 different pistols. The BHP is the only real quality one I have. I bought it used but in good shape. I added some mil surplus 17 round magazines and am happy with it. The other pistol I bought, I'm waiting to pick up in 4 days. Its a Walther P22. I notice the board is set up by manufacturer and Walther is not included.

The other two pistold I own were given to me after a friends uncle died and they cleaned out his closet. One is a FEG Hungarian .380 with aluminum frame. A PA62? The 4th is a fin little mousegun, a Raven 25. Most people hate them. Mine works and is accurate enough out to 20 feet or so which is as far as I've attempted to shoot it.

That's all.

Yesterday I treated myself to a nice 66th birthday present... HiPower 9mm with the Anniversary Engraving on the barrel. Unless civilization as we know it crumbles, this sweetie will be a safe queen... oiled regularly but never fired. (I have cheapo Ruger P85's for shooting.)
:D :D :D Happy Birthday to me :!: :D :D :D
Recruit new shooters :)

Gentlemen, I now own 3 Hi-Powers and love them all. The BHP is one of the most beautiful pistols ever devised. I carry one daily, one is modified for target use and the third is an early version made and assembled in Belgium. I fully intend to add a fourth to my collection only so I can then add a fifth and so on.Yes, you could say I have an addiction. Glad to hear of others enjoying these fine pistols. As we celebrate Mr. Brownings 1911 this year I am so glad he did not stop there.As great a pistol as that is I feel he did his best on the Hi-Power. Others may disagree, that's O.K., they make pistols for you too.

I have a BHP with proof marks on the receiver, slide, & barrel and manufactured in Belgium. The serial number is 711xx. Is there a place I can find out more on when this was made? It's mint condition.

Thanks Semper Fi

Thank you. Printed the manual and the serial number sheet. Appears this HP was made in 1954 - 1955 time frame.

Appreciate the info.

Mike
