    Hi Power

    Dug out my Practical Browning Hipower the other day an put a hundred rounds through it. It really shoots sweet still. I had taken the magazine disconnect out of it and sure enough just as people had said it made the single action trigger even smoother to shoot. Love it. I keep a flush fitting MeGGar 15 round magazine in mine. The thing is awesome and good to carry as well because of the rounded commander style hammer that is on the practical model making it not as sharp against your body when carrying IWB.

    Cool

    I love my 1964 T-Series with C&S extended safety, Heinie Lo- Pro sights and Hogue Coco Bolo grip panels. I have never had the mag disconnector removed and it has a good trigger for me but that may be a modification I should try.

    I bought my first Hi Power in 1977. I've loved them since then.

    Classic sidearms -- beautiful, accurate and reliable.

    I know this is travesty but I have been getting into the FEG clones. I have a MKII but if you find the right FEG I would not hesitate to buy one of them either. FMs always kind of looked beat up to me and maybe because they were.

    But yeah, I sold a HP to buy a 1911 about a month ago and that has been a mistake.

    Sad but true.

    Do you think it's the price that puts them off?

    Or do they not appreciate the history, ergos, reliability and accuracy behind this breathtaking (to me) sidearm?

    It puzzles me.

    I took my BHP to the range yesterday and shot 100 rounds! Six of us setup two different IDPA stages and had a great time. The Browning MK III shot wonderful. I will say this if an uninitiated shoots a BHP they are usually stunned! A truly great pistol. I also have a Charles Daly Hi-Power finished in the US, made in Hungary by FEG it is also a great shooter.

    If I had a chance on a Hi-Power, I'd jump on it

    My cousin has one that he got several years ago, it's one sweet pistol

    Dad bought me a BHP back in 1992 when I graduated college...it disapeared from my wrecked truck after I left for the hospitol with a friend to have myself checked out....the police were the only ones at the scene. The police said they never saw a pistol and said it probably was thrown out of the truck on impact, i said "but the doors and all windows remained in tact and closed".
    I still m is that gun today.

    Hello. If interested, here are some of the reasons why the Hi Power has been my favorite all-around 9mm pistol for 4 decades now:

    Why the 9mm Hi Power Remains a Favorite of Mine

    Best and good shooting to all.

    I had a couple of BHP Practical models and they were poor examples :( I always did like the "in the hand" feel of the HP however and picked up a FEG clone. It's been a better gun for me than the more expensive Brownings I had. But I'm not really a fan of 9mm.

    Ya, I own many pistols and revolvers, but the P35 has a special place in my heart---currently own three---an older "C" series ring-hammer pistol in mint condition (shoots great!)---a 1978 blued Hi Power with fixed sights, not quite mint (carried for many years, still nice)---and my latest and maybe greatest shooter, a FN marked MK111 matte finish with SFS system factory installed---amazing shooter and one of the last guns I would ever part with. Ya, you gotta love a good P35!

    Mine is set up pretty much the same way...C&S safety, military hammer and Novaks...everything you need, nothing you don't. Oh, and my mag safety is disconnected....)
