    Custom Browning High Power

    I thought some of you might get a kick out of seeing my newly rebuilt BHP. I've had a Silver Chrome HP for years but didn't shoot it much because it ate my hand. Ray Harms at Ted Yost's shop tuned it into this:

    Work done:
    Strip hardchrome
    High-cut front strap
    Stipple front strap
    Stipple rear strap
    Bevel magwell
    Mag disconnect removed
    Trigger reset modification to .090 travel
    Trigger job with C&S sear and Type II hammer
    Welded on beavertail
    Rear end of gun blended smooth
    Flat top of slide and serrate at 40 LPI
    Heinie front sight with gold line
    Heinie rear sight (wrapped to slide contour, reserrated, notch opened up to
    .140)
    Recrown barrel
    Reliability tune (included taking hump out of feed)
    Custom extended thumb safety
    Complete dehorn
    Spegel grips (Cocobolo)
    Satin matte bead blast
    Blued finish

    And this is what it looks like now:







    The photos don't do it justice but it is VERY nice!!

    That looks great. The stipling is very nicely done. I also like the commander style hammer. A buddy has older BHP with the older type hammer, and it bites me when I shoot it.

    NICE!! Is that a nice beavertail or what??? Great job.

    My BHP has some cheats applied - mostly strips of grip tape - but heck, it works and did not cost much!!! I am lucky - mine never bites me.
