I'm thinking of purchasing a Browning Hi Power. I'm new to Brownings and from what I can ascertain somewhere along the line they switched from a nice blued finish to some kind of cheap paint.
I also know that the newer models, the Mk.III I think, has plastic grips instead of wood.
I prefer the blue finish and have seen photos of one manufactured in 1994 that I'm considering. It however has plastic grips. Would this particular gun be blued or painted, I really can't tell from the photos? Thanks in advance!
