www.hipowertalk.com It's a nice place, they just need more people!
Because the one thing addicts want is someone else to share the addiction with.
Now I have another forum to play on
How do I Jion
I just bought my first Hi-Power over the weekend. It feels really nice and I am starting to fall in love with it. At first I hated the looks, but after much handling I like the shape now. Anyway, I've gotten some great links to information on Hi-Power and do not belong to any club and so I am thinking I'd like to jion this one. What's it about and how do I sign up. lol
FM Hi-Power "Detective"
Now if I were going to carry a BHP.....the Detective would be my gun. That is one sharp looking pistol.
The pistol feels a little small in my hands, so I'd be interested to know how they compare to the original ones in size.
Favorite Custom Combat Handgun". It's began as a deep-blue .40 S&W Mk.III and now features; professionally installed C&S forged hammer/sear, 1911-style ambi safety, reduced-effort transfer bar, target trigger, Pachmyer extended slide release, Navidrex (slim) checkered Micarta grips, and a custom-build KKM .357 Sig conversion barrel by Kevin McIntyre. Whew...what a shooter!
Only thing left to do is install MMC adjustable night-sights & maybe a stipple job on the front/rear straps.
Got my MKIII a few months ago. It is now competing with the CZ75 to see who I shoot the best. So far, the HP has the better grip, safety and sights.
I have jonsed for one of these for years!
Just picked up my first HP today, a 1994 Browning. It has full wrap Pachmayrs that will have to go - sorry bannockburn - and I'll be ditching the ambi safety too.
This thing is beautiful!
Here's my custom HP....
Here's my WW2 Nazi proofed FN....
I ran 45 rounds of 115gr FMJ reloads from Kings Gun Works and 15 rounds of Speer 124gr(+P) GDHP through the BHP today with nary a hiccup.
Felt recoil was minimal and I can happily report that the Browning Hi-Power indeed points to aim like an extension of my arm!
I will be changing out the Pachmayr grips for Uncle Mike's black checkered rubber grips A.S.A.P. While the Pachmayr's are an excellent product, I personally do not like full coverage grips and they do not fit my hand.
I will also be adding a couple of 13 or 10-round magazines to the BHP's arsenal. I purchased this gun with the intent of carrying it concealed wherever legal and for my personal circumstances weight is a legitimate issue.
