This started out as an SFS-back when they were $399!!!! Still can't believe I didn't buy a couple more. Anyway, traded out the SFS parts for a traditional HP. C&S Hammer, Sear, and safety. PT Night sights (don't recommend) Speigel Grips, and some grip tape. No mag safety. About 4k rounds, 3500 straight with 0 malfunctions of any kind. Carry on and off duty and love it.

Decent example of the Canadian Armed Forces standard issue sidearm.

It was purchased from Le Barons when I was a young 2Lt in the Reserves and got tired of never being issued a pistol when we went "camping" up at Petawawa or Connaught ( always remember the old QM..."Captains and above, Lad!").

Was unfired when I got it...even the unit armourer was amazed that DND would "surplus" a pistol in new condition while the units pistols were falling apart after about a jillion rounds. Strange, indeed.

New MecGar 10 round mags purchased to appease the arseholes running the show up here. Too bad I had to destroy the two original "C-broad arrow" issue mags that came with the pistol.

As you were! LOL!!

My Hi Power's

Top is my MkIII bought new in 1993 when I was a senior in college and realized I was going to get out without any debts - figured I should celebrate. I later had the trigger/sear done and the mag safety removed and made the grips out of a French walnut off cut from my dad's stock making days (1950's). It's a real sweet shooter, I just wish the sights weren't so tall. I have a set of Hi-Viz fiber optics I might try on it, or perhaps find a lower profile adjustable set.

The other is a more recent purchase, a nice T series. That one will stay stock, though the finish has just enough wear that I may not worry too much about mod's.

HP Practical 9mm/Maps

New to forum and absolutely love it. Hogue grips fit my hands much better then the Pachymar's that came with the pistol but I had to cut away a bit on the left side because of the ambi safety. Also am an absolute map freak - retired map librarian.

Hi power Pics with 1911 cousin and survivor pair

Ok guys first time on this site and i gotta say i love the fact that there are people out there that still appreciate the older generation pistols, i am a big p35 and 1911 fan. Hope you like the pics i posted first pic is on my browning mk1 made in 1976 and its colt cousin the rare commanding officers model made in 1985. from the pics you will notice the milling work on the high power slide as well as the millet adjustable site and dovetailed front sight, it also has a hard chromed finish as well as a really touchy trigger job, though reliable and consistent pull is about 1 1/2 pds mag saftey,secondary hammer saftey removed sear,disconnect and hammer spring has been modified as well. it also has a barstow heavy recoil spring for hot loads. Sadly on the other pic you will see its sequential #'s brother with a welded frame. Gun was stolen from my fathers shop back in 1980, and was discovered 23years later, #s on frame was removed but a few where still visible that and it still had the factory barrel which had the serial # as well. Funny thing was the the hard chromed frame was for the slide on my blue frame gun but it was being worked on at the time So they stole it with the factory slide of the other gun. I am currently working on returning it to its former glory and already re etched the Serial #s to the frame, i will update pic as progress is made on the mk1 counter part.

This may be useful reference for some of you.

My HP's

Here's my two Hi Powers. Both are 9mm with forged frames (does it matter?).

This one was made in '92 and bought new. Assembled in Portugal and does have the firing pin safety. It's been to Novak's and had a trigger job, reliability package, no bite hammer mod, night sites, barrel crown and Spegel grips. I added the skateboard tape on the front and back straps because I was too cheap to pay for a refinish that is necessary with machining.





This is a recent aquisition, all stock and Belgium. Made in '86 and no firing pin safety.

2nd HP

Finally picked my T series that has been on layaway for awhile.
I used my Economic Stimulus check, not sure the government had this in mind when they thought it up. Beats putting it in my gas tank.

My Modest Collection

These Hi Powers are proving to be as addictive as 1911's and easier to parade past my wife. I can once again use the excuse "Honey, I only have three of them!" I also love shooting less expensive 9mm vs 45acp and 10mm.
