    I know this post really doesnt add to the knowledge base here, but my wife won't listen to me rant about it, so you will!

    Most of the custom work was done by Jim Stroh at AlphaPrecision including a match bar-sto barrel, C&S wide trigger and trigger and reliability package. Cylinder and Slide dovtailed and installed the Novak sights.

    Knowledge base is one thing, pride in ownership & appreciating a piece of art is another! Congrats!

    Your one of us crazy Hi-Power people now. I can't wait to see the pictures of your second, third and fourth. For some reason BHP's always eventually appear in multiples. Congrats on the new one, it's a beautiful example of the best handgun ever designed.

    Just trying to add to the knowledge base by asking a good question ;)

    Thelmer - off the top of my head. Length, approx 7 3/4 inches. Height, approx 5 inches depending on type of sights (with metal magazine basepads, a little more with the rubber basepads). Weight, approx 32 ounces including empty magazine. Barrel Length, a little under 4 3/4 inches. Thickness, approx 1.3 inches...all in the butt, slide and frame is very svelte. Capacity as designed, 13 rounds 9mm parabellum (10 in U.S. so everyone can feel so much safer...). The .40 version is 3 or 4 ounces heavier (all in the slide) and has a capacity of 10 regardless. The .40 also has an extra locking lug (3 versus 2 in the 9mm).

    I just picked up my MK III last Thursday.

    I've been looking for some one to do an extended beaver tail, combat hammer, mag disconnect removal, trigger job, and a Bar Sto. If I can afford all that work I'll be looking for someone to check the front strap.

    Opie - Thats a fine looking BHP and I am surprised its your first as I know from postings at TFL that you have owned many handguns. Jim at Alpha did the trigger on my BHP also (he is about one hour away from me). I know your BHP will be a keeper.Enjoy!

    I was wondering how it compared in size to my Beretta 96-G

    Any probs with hammer bite? looks like that hammer reachs way back.

    Sexy pistol just the same.

    No Problems at all with the hammer

    I was scared at first, especially since I have meaty hands, but I was never bit one time with it. I had planned on taking a little off the back of it, but since it doesnt bite me I am not going to mess with it. This puppy is one hell of a shooter, and i am not gonna fix what aint broke.
