I’m late to the game but I’m trying to catch up
Here we go again. Browning had almost nothing to do with the High power. He submitted a design that was rejected and died in 1926, long before the Hi-power was in production. Dieudonne Saive was the actual, real father of the hi-power. He also gets credit for the FAL and other designs. He was a little known and under appreciated firearms designer.
And, being a collector myself, I'll do the same.
If it were mine I would have shot by now. LOL
My son assures me that when it becomes his, he will shoot the snot out of it.
For me it's more like BHP+Pachmayr grips=Perfection!
And if I want to "dress up" my Hi-Power a little bit I can always put these Hogue checkered Kingwood grips, that I got from one of my kids for Christmas, on it!
I have the identical MKII. I like the Pachmayr grips just fine.
I really didn't care for the factory grips which came with the gun. They felt way too slick and slippery and the thumb
rest on both sides was a bit annoying. So the first thing I did was go out and get some Pachmayr grips. Normally I cut away the front connecting piece of Pachmayr grips on my 1911s as it kind of makes the grip section feel too wide for my smaller size hand. But with the Hi-Power I used the complete set of wrap-around grips. Now they felt perfect and I have kept them on ever since.
I think my 9mm 1911 and my CZ 75B are both close in that these feel good in my hand, and point well to a target, but just not quite the same as my BHP’s.
The Aluma Grips work for me very well. I also have Esmeralda Grips on two of my HPs and one "FN" marked Argentinian early 80s civilian 73 type model has VZ Orange and Black cheese Graters to match my .308 AR 10 Carbine But those pachys really do feel good on them, I forgot about that.
Down to just three now, but I think the '89 MKIII I have is the last one I'd want to part with.
