    Very much so. I'd prefer to have the gold parts the same tint as the slide, but that's just me :)

    Very nice! Mine is pretty much stock, except for some Cocobolo grips.

    Understand that the stippling is in lieu of another treatment becuase placement of the serial number? I like the gold on this piece but not ordinarily.
    Should I send this one in for treatment? It is a '72 Belgian

    Yep, Hi-Power owner.

    Gold, Hard Chrome, Matte Blue, Standard Blue, they are all beautilful to me.

    I've fallen in love with the High Power, like a $2 whore on crack. If you look at my Avatar that will give you a clue. :D I've finally come to understand what they mean when they say: "When John Browning designed the 1911 he hit a Home Run. When he designed the High Power he hit a Grand Slam."

    Unfortunately, JMB did not design the Hi-Power that we love today, Dieudonné Joseph Saive created the beautiful pistol we are familiar with.

    Hi-Power

    Wonderful Pistol! I have two, after buying, selling and trading for many years I found the Hi-Power, my favorite handgun. Yours is a work of art.

    If I buy a Custom Hi-Power...it'll be a Novak. Plus he's a good ol' WV boy.

    I have a hi power that I bought strictly to have customized. I bought it on its history and its lines , I have never shot the one I bought, it was in my possesion about a week before I sent it off to Heirloom precision for the SRT package .I have become a devotee to the CZ 75 and they are the offspring of the Hi-Power so Im sure Ill be a rabid fan also .

    Beautiful HP. Gold doesn't match IMO, but it's YOUR HP!
