    two beautiful platforms right there! Too bad the Hi-Power wasnt a hit like the 1911. I have seen some custom ones that are very eye catching

    I think part of the problem is that it was designed around a European cartridge.

    If you consider the entire world and not just the US, the HP rivals the 1911 in popularity. In fact, in some areas its more popular than the 1911. Obviously, its not in this country.

    Perfectly. It's like a slimmed down commander. It's just light enough to not drag my jeans down like a 1911 and it's a little thinner and shorter too.

    If you carry IWB and don't have a Hi-Power, you're missin' out big time, it's almost everything you love about a Glock 19 and a 1911...

    It was a cast framed model that had been sitting in a guys safe for years. It couldn't have had more than a 50 rounds fired through it, it was perfect.

    Only $475 too...I'm kicking myself now. I hate bad timing and self-control.

    Dammit! That's exactly what I'm lookin' for. I want a MK III FN, without the Browning rollmark.

    Well, that sort of thing has probably happened to all of us at one time or another.

    Yeah, they definitely go togther. I think they are #s 1 & 2 on the list of all-time classic pistols. Better make that 1a and 1b...and which is which probably doesn't really matter.
