WW2 era Inglis HP parts interchange with German/Belgium?

Will WW2 era Inglis parts work in a German/Belgium HP? Mostly concerned with guide rod and slide release lever?

I believe that the Inglis Hi Powers are "inch" pistols rather than "metric" pistols. What that means is that all of the part dimensions were adjusted in a redesign to make the parts able to be manufactured on machine tools calibrated in fractions of an inch instead of metric calibrations. The parts are all likely to still fall within tolerances, but are more likely to fall more to the extreme limits.

Likely more fitting will be required.

Somewhere in the back of my cave under a ton of mammoth dung I think I have a "chart" showing which FN parts interchange with Inglis parts. If I can sneak past the saber tooth cat I will try to look for it. I know the British fitted FN barrels to their Inglis High Powers.

Would love to see that "chart"!

Unfortunately, I was unable to locate the "chart". My mind is starting to play tricks on me. The only thing I came across was in a Canadian Forces manual about fitting FN barrels to the Inglis. Also, I found this in a British Army Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Technical Handbook on the "Pistol, Automatic, 9 MM, FN, Browning, No. 2, Mk 1* and Pistol, Automatic, 9 MM, L9A1" " Due to the numerous minor dimensional changes, components are not interchangeable between the two pistols."

I guess that really doesn't surprise me. Back in the day, when it was the thing to do, I put together a couple of FAL rifles (another of Dieudonne Saive's projects), and I recall that it wasn't advisable to interchange pars between inch and metric rifles.
