Looks great Joe, sadly I've never shot a BHP.

$680 shipped to my FFL (workin out of state). :cool:




What a beautiful pistol.

A 1967 Belgian Hi Power was the first firearm I ever owned and I lament its loss to this day from a burglary at my mother's house where I had stored my belongings while I traveled extensively in those days.

I paid a grand total of $104 for the gun and I still remember it for being a wonderful shooter in all ways. I only fired FMJ rounds and have read that these guns can be iffy with JHP. Can anyone definitively confirm this?

Hollowpoints in an older HighPower is very "iffy", and may require a trip to the smith to make is reliable with premium ammo.

It also seems strange that it has a spur type hammer as opposed the rowell type. I don't ever remember seeing a spur type hammer until the late 80s. I may be wrong on that as I'm working with a old and sometimes faulty brain.

Also, beware of hammer bite with that spur hammer. It won't be bad, just annoying.

Late 80's?

The spur hammer Hi-Powers were certainly around in the early 70's and even before that.
