Here are a few of my BHP...



My sis shooting it...



I have an 'in' with C&S so I picked up a wide safety and the wide combat trigger. Should be here soon. I was planning on refinishing it since the day I saw it and the price tag next to it. So next week after my last final (FML), I will sandblasting a parkerizing it. Im also on the prowl for some nice wood grips.

Thanks Burgs. Yeah my Charles Daly is a pretty good gun. I haven't had a problem with it yet. The only thing I don't like about it is the XS sights, which are probably great for self defense, but not as good for target shooting. Of course it doesn't help that I'm already a bad shot with a pistol .

There have been some threads on what will work as a replacement. A brand of famous 1911 sights for the CD, but the name escapes me right now. I know id depends on which of the 2 CD HP types of dovetails your particular HP has.

If you are interested, you might want to search "Charles Daley Hi power", or "Charles Daley sights" and see what turns up. At the very least, you will end up reading a bunch of good stuff on the CD HP.

I think I read that you can put some Novak sights on the Charles Daly. I would get their tritium sights, except the price is over $100, so I'm not sure if I want to put that much money into it or not.

I just found this site and I know this threads for pictures but I have had two HP's sitting in my closet for about 10 years and wanted to get some details on them and came across this site. The serial number chart on the Browning website doesn't go as high as my "T" serial number and was wondering if someone would have answer for me. My s/n is T272XXX, it has ring hammer, external extractor, Tangent sight, Blue and has never been fired according to the tag on it. Any help would be appreciated.

If you look hard enough, you can see where the barrel hood says "Cal. 9mm Luger"

Also, if you look at the left side, it is not relief cut on the slide where the slide passes the slide stop, as it is on the .40 model.

Wow--excellent work, rgregory!

I can only assume that you are a pro gunsmith at that level of quality...

1981 Browning Hi Power with Desert Eagle 1911G

These are two of my favorite guns in my collection. The Browning has never been fired but I think I may have to break it in.

Here are the only two Hi Powers that I own presently, both in .40 S&W. The top one is stock except for the .357 SIG barrel and the bottom one has the C&S treatment, biteless hammer, sear and wide trigger.
