Bought it about 4 years ago. Made in Belgium. Assembled in Portugal. I don't have a problem with that. Magnificent pistol. The sights, while adjustable out to 500 meters, are designed so that you must cover the target with the front sight to hit it at the designated range. This makes hitting on even man-sized targets very difficult. I prefer the 6 o'clock hold, where your front sight hovers just below the target, so you can see your target at all times and keep the front sight aligned. However, I learned early on that if I set my El Capitan rear sight to 200, it's a near-perfect 6 o'clock hold with 115 gr. bullets at a bullseye at 25 yards. With the rear sight set at 200, bullets strike about 4 inches above the front sight at 25 yards. This makes a good combat sight setting, as I've always used a 6 o'clock hold for pistol shooting. In the stress of a gunfight, I would undoubtedly -- without thinking -- align the sights in a 6 o'clock hold. In the stress of a gunfight, you do what you are trained to do and most of the time don't even think about it. Anyway, the Hi-Power is magnificent. The El Capitan has been dropped from production. I'm glad I got mine when I did. Slim, accurate, utterly reliable (at least in the Mark III version), fits the hand perfectly and points like a finger. Just a wonderful pistol. I can't praise it enough.
