One of my dads favorite firearms, I'll probably try to get him one for christmas this year.



Any one else a Hi-Power addict?

I have one but have never shot it. My grandfather gave it to me. He got it from a captured German in WWII during the battle of the bulge.



I have worked on several and they are nice guns they just don't do it for me.

My grandfather gave me a J.P. Sauer & Sohn (now part of SIG) Model 38H from about the same time period. 8)

I haven't fired it either, but my dad and I are planning on trying it eventually.

I have a Belgian-made FN that is a great shooter. Got it several years ago when the surplus Israeli FN's came in. One of my favorite 9mm's.

My pops has one that we take to the range occasionally. I don't know much about it. I do know that he liked the ones the Aussies carried in Vietnam (he's a Nam veteran) and traded for this one when he came home. It is a great gun, just feels right in the hand.

I have a Hungarian PJK-9HP FEG and its a super gun at ANY price. It has been 100% reliable since I bought it and it is the most accurate gun I have ever owned. The bluing on it it fantastic. The only criticism I have is that the hammer/sera combo seem a bit soft. I replaced them with Browning bits but for a 225.00 gun what more could you ask??

Morgan, it's a gun - I guess. I Google'd 9mm Hi-power in the Images category and a bunch of Browning Hi-Power pistol's popped up. Learn something new everyday. :idea:

I looked at them for a long time but could never convince myself to buy one because I have large hands and the grip was just too small. I finaly found a "Practical" model in 9mm that had the wraparound Pacmair (sp) grips. That got it big enough to be usable for me.



I replaced the horrible "long white stripe" sights with some tritium, yanked out the mag safety and worked on the sear to get a good trigger pull. And finally did a "gun plumber" hammer reduction to keep it from biting my hand.



The gun now runs like a spotted-ass ape. If I could find some way of getting a magwell on it to speed up reloads I would use it in competition.



It points great with 1911 ergos and controls.

I have a Mk1 P-35 Hi-Power, it's one of my favorites. Handles well, fits the hand nicely, one of the best, not the best, but ranks high, service pistols made.

You kids didn't know what a Hi-Power is?



Good grief, next you'll say you don't know what a SAA or a Broom Handle is.......

i went to a local range with my father and uncle a few days back. i was shooting my M&P 9mm and my ruger Gp100, my father brought his old Model 10 .38 special. my uncle had a S&W .357 (not sure of the model #) and he had a Hi power. i was real impressed with the gun. it shot tight groups, was still tight after 25+ years as one of his service pistols in the FBI. I never really think of browning as a pistol manufacturer, but they have produced one fine pistol to me.

I currently have 3: a FEG PJK-9HP clone, a Browning .40 and a FN 9mm. Love'em all. The FEG has had the mag disconnect removed as it was the only way to improve the gritty trigger. The Browning .40 has such a nice trigger with the disconnect in that I haven't had the need to remove it and the 9mm FN is smoothing out nicely with it still installed, too.



Only thing I've done to each is a set of Hogue wrap around grips.
