Hi Power Picture Gallery: Post Your Pictures Here

Hello. A request was made for a sticky thread for folks to post pictures of their Hi Powers. Have at it. I'll start. Keep in mind that the request for this thread was one for folks JUST to post pictures and describe them. It is NOT a place for arguments or airing differences of opinions. Take that to PM's or start other threads but within the rules here at the 1911 Forum.


An FN competition model with Spegel grips and a bobbed hammer.


A different Mk III with a matte blue finish on the frame and polished blue on the slide.


This is my first Hi Power, which was customized back in the '70's.

Best.

Thanks for getting this started. Nice photos as well.

This one sports some of the new Gunner grips. It was tuned up by Mark Graham at ARS about 5 years ago.


This new FN MkIII is currently off at Don Williams getting some work done on it. I was frustrated early on when these started coming in as I couldn't find one in California. I'm glad I found one last summer. The new updated FN roll marks are very nice and much more attractive then the markings on the earlier pistols.

My Argy HP,

Made in 1961.



I did the sight installation and slicked up the action. The trigger is fine as-is. I carry this gun and use it in IDPA, so the mag safety was left in.

Other than the sights and a slightly bigger safety, the gun is unchanged. Hard chrome by AP&W.

still working on getting photo right. Photographing guns is relatively hard! Anyway, sorry, but here is one more I took outside for better light.

This is my World War II Nazi Germany High Power. As best I can tell, it was manufactured at the Fabrique Nationiale plant in Herstal, Belgium. Here are a few pictures. I'm not a photographer

The gun reflects the poor quality of the Nazi made guns. They were probably making them in huge quanities. One of the pictures shows the nazi proofmarks on the slide and the frame. Notice that they stamped the serial numbers above each other on the slide, frame and barrel. The gun has the original wood grips and the original hi-cap (13 round) aluminum magizine.

Just a neat piece of history.

My only Browning Hi-Power

This is the only Hi-Power I've gotten so far. But like all of my Browning guns, I really love it. Purchased a couple of years ago, new.

My Silver Chrome

Howdy,

Here is my silver-chrome. Is was produced just before they switched to the Mark II

The original barrel was missing when I bought it so I put a Barsto in it.
I had both the rear adjustable sight and the front sight blackened.

I have a C&S safety that needs to be put on then I'm done.

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
