Got these two BHPs within the past month...



Top is a 1976, bottom 1989. All I've done was swap out the grips on the first one. I liked it so much, I traded my .40 Beretta 9000s and Browning BDA-380 for the newer model.

I've had this FEG Hi-Power for about 6 years. Had a beavertail installed and the gun parkerized. Just added the Detective conversion kit from FM. Not sure how it's going to shoot but I like the way it looks

Here are a couple of my personal BHP's that recently went through the Yost-Bonitz shop...

The top one in the first photo is a Browning MkIII recent production pistol that got the Yost SRT package with a few extras incl. a C&S no-bite ring hammer, polished flats, and Spegel grips.

The bottom one in the first photo is an FN marked gun that was one of the Israeli security forces trade-in's imported and sold by AIM for $275 a few years ago. This pistol was in excellent mechanical condition, but the paint over parked finish looked like crap. Ray Harms of YoBo, did a nice trigger job removing the mag safety, custom extended thumb safety, light dehorn, replaced factory ring hammer with a bobbed spur, refinished in matte blue, and Nill grips from MacTec of course!

Both function flawlessly and are a joy to shoot.

Hi all,

Here is my first posting and a picture of my first semi auto. It's a 40 S&W made in Belgium and assembled in Portugal.

Techie.

I really wish that you all would stop posting these pics of HPs. I cannot afford to buy anymore and you are making me lust for more!

Grips came out of a gun show bargain box, 5 bucks I think. They were smooth and very thick, so I thinned and checkered 'em. I think the dark wood looks great on the HP. Except theres a crack starting on the right panel toward the top, I needa fix.

Can't venture a guess as to the wood, as I havent worked with any like it before.

A few Quick Pics of my Browning HP Standard

I just replaced the hammer, prefer these over the spur type and put on Trijicon sites. =) maverick

My Hi Power Collection

I'm just getting around to posting these pics. My photography leaves much to be desired, but here goes:


Both guns shoot and function with all types of ammo. The trigger on the blued gun has been tuned the pracitcal is a recent acquisiton and appears to be stock. Mag disconnects have NOT been removed on either gun. Both pistols were purchased used at gun shows.

sorry for the real bad photo(grapher)

the GP is completely original, with trigger pull of 7+lbs (the test device didn't go higher but the trigeer didn't go off yet, probably 7.7lbs)

some really nice HP's here, damn
