Had a new toy awaiting my return home.
I had agreed to buy this Hi-Power Practical in 9mm before I went away, it's is in excellent shape with very few rounds down the barrel and Pachmayer grips on it. I prefer Hogues, but will try these grips out first. Haven't had it out to the range yet, but will report back when I do. Need to get more mags for it now. The holster shown is for a 1911 Commander but it fits the HP nicely with a few turns on the tension screw. DO NOT try to use a Serpa Holster for the 1911 on the HP, it will jam up. So I will have to find a another holster for it to use in IPSC or other.
I have always had a soft spot for the HP as these were our issue pistols in the army. Although ours were all made in the 40's by Inglis for the Chinese, never delivered. To bad the practical does not have the slot for the shoulder stock.......hmmmmm
I certainly wished I could have carried this on my trip.
