Congratulations on the perfect handgun.
I keep telling myself that I will own a real Hi-Power one day....but for now, this FEG clone is all I got. It sat in the used gun case at my local GS foreverrrrrrr, so I got it for a song a few years ago.
Its an exact copy of the real Hi Power, so I'm getting closer.
thew a set of these on it from Cylinder & Slide.
Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
Congratulations msgt! The Hi Power is a true classic and an accurate and reliable handgun. :)

Nice find, now you need a great holster to go with that ! I had Spegal grips on mine, and while I love the look and feel of them, the left side panel was becoming discolored from body contact in the summer months. I have gone back to using those same Hogue's for carry use, and I actually like them a lot for their function.
I bought my Hi Power in '94 and had it worked over by Novak's in '95. One of my favorites (but then again, all of my kids are one of my favorites).
What made me really love mine was finding the right holster for it. An 'Incognito' IWB holster from Mark Garrity made it a great carry gun. A nice thin secure holster with a generous back shield to prevent anything from digging in. Gresat easy draw too.
