    Well, actually on another forum someone posted that HiPowers were ugly so I had to take some pics. Also, been eye-balling a Colt Combat Elite at the local shop which prompted the duo-tone looks. Anyway, as you may guess I kind of like HiPowers :)

    Two FN 40's siblings:

    Some slide swapping (I really like that Combat Elite look):

    Some reverse slide swapping:

    P.S. before you ask, that's a Steyr S40 they are propped on.

    Some folks have asked me about the stippling on my Robar NP3'd 40.
    It was done locally by the smith at Federal Way Discount Guns (WA):

    Never been my favorite, but the P-35 isnt ugly!! Sadly, most dont have a clue about the P-35's history, whom really designed it or what caused it's creation in the first place.

    I am kind of partial to the BHPs myself. Nothing ugly about them except their price.:supergrin:

    Well.....I know who designed it, but I'm not sure I know what caused it's creation in the first place......

    Why don't you educate me?

    One of the best Pistols ever built, the design of this weapon is among the best, George.

    With the hinged trigger it should be the sweetest shooter of all, except for the magazine disconnect. Which was mandated by the French Army as I recall. Figures.
