    An unrealized wish

    I wish that RIA would come out with an affordable Hi power clone in 9MM and 40 S&W the same way they have come out with the affordable 1911's.

    Now that would be nice.

    Check out the FEG clones of the Hi-Power. Does it matter that they are Hungarian and not Filipino?

    unfortunately, FEG went toe-up several years ago, and the only Hi-Power clones are pushing 15 years old. I was lucky to find one barely fired used a few years ago.....I've seen
    a lot of them that are pretty beat up.
    I bought a hard chrome FEG PJK-9HP from Walmart in Texas as Walmart was closing out all handguns in 1994. Wish I still had that one, as it had a perfect single action trigger and a hard chrome finish
    that was just freaking beautiful. I paid $175 as a closeout.
    The FEG HP's are very well made and worth a look. Go on gunbroker and search for FEG. Price for one in decent shape is around $400. Be careful because FEG made a DA/SA model that they call
    a HP clone, but its more of a Smith & Wessson 59 clone. The PJK-9HP models are the ones to look for as these are true HP clones.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    I doubt you'll ever see it happen. While the BHP is a great platform, I don't think it has the almost cult like following the 1911 does. You might want to consider the CZ75 instead.

    There's a Browning BDM sitting in my local gunshop for $695. Sometimes I could really kick myself for going over my allocated gun spending limit for the month.

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

    It's a long way from a BDM to a Hi-Power. Watch for retired Israeli military FN HP offerings. A batch became available early in 2011 & sold F-A-S-T at ~$600. IMHO, there are few pistols that "fit" my hand & disposition like a BHP. I own three. I don't own a clone, but would try to find an Arcus if I wanted one. Good Luck.
    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

    I stand corrected, it was a Mark III for $954. Not sure where I got BDM from, or the price. If I was kicking myself before I've got my proverbial foot up my butt now.
