New member with a new High Power




A friend of mine introduced me to the browning High Power and I decided to pick one up at Tulsa this year. This is a 1977 Belgium made that I bought all original. After some fine gunsmithing by my friend, this piece now has a 4.75lb trigger, a C&S hammer, mainspring and sear kit, ambi safety, and some VZ grips. I haven't taken it to the range yet with the new trigger job, but I've dry-fired a few times to feel the trigger and, let me tell you, it's smooth as silk. I like the VZ grips, but eventually I'd like to pick up some spegels. Also, we'll install some Heinie strait 8 night sights, but those are on backorder for now.

Rhub,

That's one fine Hi Power. I think that you'll love the Heinie sights and that you'll find good groups easier to make once you can actually see the sights. I like the VZ grips a lot, but Spegels on a blued HP are something very special. I can definitely see why you'd want to do that. I hope that you keep us posted on your progress.

Thanks for the photo post and welcome to the forum!
