I might as well add mine to the mix. Didn't know anything about hi-powers until I bought it. Saw it sitting there used at the LGS, asked to see it......wow, it feels good in my hand. Payed what I thought was a good price....that was almost a year ago. Since then I have gotten rid of my other 9mm pistols and only shoot this (9mm). I am very torn between keeping it stock or sending it off to have some custom work done to it. I really like this! Will be looking for more in the future.

My '59 Browning and '51 E-Series.

The trigger is so good on the Browning, even at 9 lbs, that I am giving serious thought to having Don Williams do some things with it.


















Adding a pic of my favorite rifle with my favorite High Power. Winchester Garand I put together from a stripped receiver.

I've always liked them and have had at least 3 in the safe since I was in my early 20's. Lately though, I've kinda gone off the deep end. The one in the middle is a nickel plated, gold trigger, BHP that my dad bought new. It's never been shot. Others include 2 detectives, a dedicated 22 I bought from a member on another board, a lightweight framed FN, a T series, a WWII Nazi, a 53 German police, and a GP Competition, and a 70's production. Here are the kids:

New BHP Mk III

Just got a new Hi Power a couple days ago and thought I'd post a pic. Just a standard Mk III, no frills. LGS gave me a pretty good deal on it, even threw in an extra mag at no cost. After I got it home, I was surprised to find the "MZ" serial number traced back to a 2001 model per Brownings home page. This gun must have been sitting in a warehouse somewhere for a very long time before I got hold of it. LGS claims it was their last one. Took it to the range yesterday after cleaning/lubing (was very dry) and shot off 50 rds of white box Winchester target rds. The pistol performed perfectly, no issues at all with either of the 3 mags and no feeding/firing issues. The gun is obviously more accurate than I am. Photo shows my last two groupings, one 8 rnd and one 10, all from 15 yds standing. Other than a single aberation for each group, I think it did well overall considering it was my first time ever handling a Hi Power. Noted that my most accurate shots were always the first couple, after that I tend to wander a bit.

One surprise I had at the range that I should have seen coming considering its year of manufacture, the original Browning mags were both 10 rds, the extra was a 13 rd, though. No biggie for me, but a surprise anyway. Despite what I've read about the trigger, it turned out to be no big deal for me. Could be that I got a good one from the factory, but most likely that given my lack of handgun experience, I wouldn't know a good trigger feel if it hit me on top of the head. Maybe ignorance is bliss! No hammer bite issues either. May get a trigger job someday, but for now, I'm leaving it alone.

Here are a few of my BHP...



My sis shooting it...



I have an 'in' with C&S so I picked up a wide safety and the wide combat trigger. Should be here soon. I was planning on refinishing it since the day I saw it and the price tag next to it. So next week after my last final (FML), I will sandblasting a parkerizing it. Im also on the prowl for some nice wood grips.

1981 Browning Hi Power with Desert Eagle 1911G

These are two of my favorite guns in my collection. The Browning has never been fired but I think I may have to break it in.
