Leadpumper, some guns just look accurate, yours appears to be one of them... ;)
Boy, i wish they chambered HP's in 10mm!

Damn, I just gotta get me one of those!
WildAlaska; If you ever want to put that one up for adoption I'll give it a good home.
Tomkatz; what kind of finish is on yours? Looks good.

This is an 89 MK III done in Boron Carbide. Ammo is Nyclad, Mag is KRD 17 Rounder. I put the cheap thin plastic grips on it from a clone. This is what I carry for a side arm when I hunt (having once been surrounded by a pack of six dogs when armed with only a five shot j frame!). This one still has the mag safety. The trigger made smooth with some moly lube which when applied over (into) the boron carbide made the action down right slick.

I could not get two pics uploaded. So here is a separate close up of the slide roll marks. This one shows closer to the actual color of the gun which is a dark satin grey.

A (1939)? military version.It has nazi markings on it...don't function :(
Your Wickman Hi-Power is what pushed me over the BHP edge...
Pushed? Looks to me like you jumped :)
In any case, I've always thought you had excellent taste in firearms. This just confirms it. Your pictures of AR15s have definitely given me a few ideas as well, though I've yet to muster the funds to even begin investigating them.
The Wickmann Hi-Power is still going strong approaching the 23k round mark. Definitely a purchase I haven't ever regretted.

Well, might as well keep this thread goin'. Here's mine, she's bone stock, but nowadays is sportin' some skateboard grip tape on the front and backstrap.

Don't have pic's so I can only describe, srry. FN that came as a 6" target cut down to 5". Mag disconnect disconnected, beaver-tail added, ambi-safeties, NP3 throughout with Robar reliability package. Has very crude but strangely alluring adjustable sights and an oversized front nite sight. Very sweet.
Believe it or not, but this is the only picture I have of my BHP :uhoh:

May I throw in my current ''just for a change'' carry - and more recent IDPA use, BHP Practical ... lovely piece - I honestly forget from whom here I bought this (Diesle? Atticus?) ... but it is a lovely shooter - and has a good home.
