5 100s and a 50 should do it. Trust me . BTW early HPs don't usually do well with HP or SP ammo. But if you want it for a range shooter use ball FMJ ammo and it's all good. PS FMJ 9mm ammo worked on people for 100 years quite well.
Good tack. I dig it.

That way, it's all that is on hand but you don't necessarily have to spend all of it and if it really speaks to you and your research says it's worth more, adjust from there.
Benjamins weren't going to impress him. He owns Merkel & Krieghoff shotguns and a Churchill double rifle. He wasn't selling because he needs the money.
THEN decide if you want a Hipower. They are pretty guns but have their strengths and weaknesses.
Then if you want one, look at COMPLETED auctions on GB and get a sense of the value. Here is another thing. If YOU FIND a Hipower with a good trigger it is worth about $200 more than one with a 8LB and/or creepy trigger. Ask me. I bought one that was LNIB for $500 many years ago, and ended up putting $200+ in the trigger. It is very nice now - not perfect. Overall, with the discontinuation of the breed, the price has gone up like it or not.
10 Years ago CDNN had a run of FN Belgians for $400. Prices went down. Have you seen the surplus ones? Not great shape and look like they need a refinish.
Again determine if you want it. Then look and some day you'll find a decent one at a decent price.
Well - I've seen the surplus ones. In fact , I acquired one a few months back for around $495 ... trigger at 7# with a very clean break. Now it is my best shooting and favorite semiautomatic handgun. Yes the finish is worn - the Israelis carried it for quite a while ; if I were offered a free re-blue I would say no. Would not change a thing.
You never know, sometimes people are living high on the credit card, monthly interest payments only.
A blip like no work, like now, and they're over the edge. Not saying that's what's doing with your seller, but....who knows.
That is SWEET!
But, if it remains un-fired, you don't even know if it works.
