kind of.


My stepfather passed away about 6 years ago and left me all of his guns, when I went down to visit my Mom I picked them up, wiht the exception of one, a Browning Hi Power. Could not find it anywhere.

She has been looking for it ever since and finally this weekend she was having her house remodeled and called and said "Hey, I found a box of bullets and holsters and belts and some reloading stuff" Great! I thought.

Then she called a little later and said "Hey! I think I found that Browning you have been wanting, and two other guns".

She took a pic with her cell phone and it looks like the Browing Hi Power "Signature Edition" (which I think is just a two tone 9MM with Pachmayr grips, don't know that there is anything else special about it), a Smith and Wesson 539 (stainless 9MM auto), and what looks like a S&W Mdl 19 maybe.

I'll try and post pics later.

The HP.. is a "Practical" model.....sometimes it is called signature because "signature" appears on the grips...they are Pachmyer Signature Grips..........nice inheritance....

I knew about the grips, have had a couple of sets of the signatures, but I thought the "practical" series had different sights and for some reason thought the barrel was a little shorter?

Very nice my friend. I have one gun that I inherited when my best friend passed. It means more to me than any of the others, and it feels like he is with me when I shoot it. I hope you get the same satisfaction out of yours.

actually the front sight is slightly different...it has a much longer "ramp" than a MKIII or Standard (Vigilante) All barrels on every HP is the same 4 21/32" with the exception of the "Detective" model ( or slide replacement) made by FM in Argentina.

just looking it up myself and yes, looks like the practical came with either adj or fixed rear sights and was the standard barrel. thanks for the info!

wish I knew what that revolver was.... sure looks like a S&W logo on the grips but they could be add-ons.

Hate to hear how you came about getting them but still a nice addition to your collection.
