    The first 200 thru were a little sticky, but after she loosened up some she is proving to be quite comfortable and a real pleasure to shoot. Nevermind to look at...
    My guess is that the gun was never fired before I got it. It's really easy to clean as well and although I am not pleased with the white writing on the barrel, I am hoping it will wear off after a few more visits from Mr. Hoppes... :x:

    First female poster here? Welcome.
    I have an older HP from the mid 80's. I really like it, I even bought the detective barrel & slide so I could use it for CCW.
    Very accurate design.

    That's a hot little number. Kellyclan, stop shooting the walls at the range.

    The new staple gun has a funny torque to it, keeps twisting that way. :o

    i have the identical model Hi-Power... MkIII Browning, Belgian made.

    bought it 9 years ago. still have never shot it for one reason or another. had the mag safety removed and the hammer/sear polished. the trigger feels much better than it did stock... no creep, slight take up, crisp let-off, very little overtravel. feels like a Browning Buckmark, now. just put a set of smooth faced kingwood grips on it.

    one of these days i'll take it out and shoot it. i just never shop for 9mm ammo, and i dont have the reloading dies for it, either. :hs:

    it's not necessarily the detail, but the fact that its silhouette looked like a midget version of my P7M10. :bigthumb:

    P7's are hard to miss.
