I would definitely like to try one out just to see how the balance is and if it handles any differently from the standard Hi-Power.
They shoot a little differently. Similar to a Commander vs Govt 1911. Weight wise they are about the same.This is my FM Detective upper which rides on a FN frame.
European LE alloy FN P35 with an FM Detective fitted on top of it. Predator Custom Shop (RIP) rebuilt and tuned the alloy P35 and slide as well as the Detective. The sights and finish all match. The alloy bottom makes a big difference in weight and the shorter upper make for easier carry.
How do you feel about the barrel cam being different? The FM Detective barrel has the standard cam lug cut while the alloy frame has a the round cut to accomidate the second pin in the frame? This has always been my concern with converting the alloy's to Detectives.
Nice Bigfoot pelt.
I know that they will run but to me there was always a question of longevity. The alloy frames don't last as long as the steel ones and the cam insert is one of the weak points. Have you seen an deformation on the cam, on frame around the cam or the barrel?
Not as of yet.
Need? What’s that? I’m unfamiliar with that term.
I assume it's still a full size frame made of steel.
Did they ever come in an alloy?
Just the slide is shorter, correct?
3.88" Barrel shorter slide on full sized frame. Like a Commander or Centurion.
Want trumps need every time.
I've always held off on buying a Hi-Power because if I'm going to carry a full sized auto, I'd rather it were a 1911, but I admit my interest is piqued also.
I carry both... 15+1 (17+1 with extended mag base) has its merits
