    My ANIB '93 Capitan is same way, absolutely stunning bluing. But I'm going to shoot the little beauty as often as time and tired old body permits and as much as I can afford to these days. :supergrin:

    I guess we should thank POTUS and Congress for that. :faint:

    There were also fantastic hi-power clones, made in various contries. Some of them can fetch prices as high as a real browning or FN. I have one made in Argentina, an FM. I paid $200 for it, with night sights and extended controls. The finish on it is about 80%, but I'm not too concerned about how a carry gun's finish is, as long as it's not rust. I need to have it refinished, but for now, here's how it sits, with hogue grips. The origionals were like gripping a beer can with a trigger. It had the mag safety removed before I got it, but I really didn't care for the large take-up, or over-travel it had. After polishing the hammer and sear, I put a small bead on the front of my trigger as an over-travel stop and fit it. I also had to fit the trigger bar. I was amazed the way the trigger actuates through the slide, and not through the frame like a 1911 or so many other pistols. Now this is truely like a 1911 trigger. Very short travel, equally short reset.

    This looks absolutely beautiful. How did it hold up over time? Would you still recommend Metalife? thanks

    We have a pair and have the stock black plastic grips on both. I got them new for $1400 OTD for the pair two years ago. We love them!

    Good looking pistols in this thread.

    BTW: I think it's time we get a Zombie Thread emoticon. :whistling:

    I need the lanyard loop for a Hi-Power, and am having a hard time finding a good price for one. Any suggestions to find just the loop?
