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.

My early German Occupation FN GP-35 with tangent sights.

(Just got that one...finding a couple of the old type internal extractors was a tough job, but I found em)









Serial numbers all match, it has 5 digit serial number with no prefixes or suffixes starting with a '9xxxx' and it's a 'WaA140' stamped model.

I believe that puts it between late 1941 and early 1942.

----------------

My Hi-Powers in two pics (plus a CZ that 'sneaked in' to the picture).




The grey parkerized 1980 BHP directly above is in a separate pic as it's currently away getting a face lift at Fletcher Custom.

Both guns are flawless, and with about 500 rounds through each one
functioning is perfect.From the bench at 20 yards both will print a magazine
full into sub 2in. groups with the forty doing slightly better, it can turn
in 1 1/4in. for 10 rounds with Blazer brass fmj's.
Thier both dressed in Spegel's, with the forty wearing Kingwood.
(I have been asked many times what it was)
These are truly gentleman's handguns.
Very Nice grips on that BHP!

Three of my Hi Powers, because I'm just learning how to attach pistures and finding it to be kinda fun. A '66 T-Series, a MK III type that one noted Hi Power collector described as a NATO model, Lanyard ring, European slide roll marks, etc, wearing Craig Spegel grips for now and a GP Comp fitted with thin Navidrex Micarta grips.
