Here's my newly acquired baby! Nazi marked with the original holster, and original spare magazine.
That holster design is identical to the one on a Jaeger Pistole that my dad brought back from WWII.
It has to be sized differently though. The Jaeger is much smaller.
Here's my 72C Browning Hi Power I inherited from my dad here in the Philippines
Here's my Browning Hi Power now with nickel finish, Novak Tritium Night Sights, with SFS installed and a pair of CT Lasergrips
Manufactured in '82, it's near completely MINT.
Has a C&S trigger & ambi-safety installed.
Looks like the perfect Hi Power to me.
My FM. Just got it today.
Here's what I use for carry, an FNH HP-DAc 9x19 DA/SA no mag safety, mag release can be changed easy for user. Only imported in 2001, one lot of 500, they were not imported by FNH-USA. They were for military and police, but before they got a leg up Tupperware Glock killed them.
Extremely accurate, excellent trigger, with alloy frame. Nothing like second or third strike if one doesn't pop the first time for some reason. Came with silicon wire recoil spring, of about 18.5 to 20 lb and is a PIA to break down compared to my HP because of no slot for safety to hold slide back. From 15 yards in just under 10 seconds 10 rounds in 8" group.
Israeli Police trade in. Belgian MK II, 1985 vintage, removed the magazine disconnect and had Craig Spegel notch a set of his grips for the lanyard loop stud.
my recently returned to me Practical with some light customization...
I've had quite a few Hi Powers over the past several decades, but am down to only these few now.
Here is an early '80s model stamped Belgium (no Portugal), and an FN marked standard HP.
Full SRT package
And in .40 no less ...
Oh yeah forgot to mention that ,good heads up
I have been looking for HP for quite a while. When I came across this one locally, I couldn't pass it up. It's a Herstal FN HP-SA from Belgium. It was manufactured in 2003. The Herstals (Browning thru and thru) were only imported to the US for a couple of years. CDNN and AIM sold a bunch of them for less than $500 back in 2004. This particular pistol came with the original case, manual, spent casing, cleaning kit and 4 magazines. In addition, the seller threw in 2 holsters (LH!) a leather 2-mag pouch, fancy wood grips, Browning standard wood grips, 80 personal defense 147gr HPs, and 160 White Box 115gr FMJ rounds. Price? $640 for the whole lot. The pistol is as-new without a mark. I bought it from the original owner who purchased it in 2004. It is the original concept SA and not the SFS model. I think I did pretty well and I'm very happy to have it.
