    I almost bought a BDM when they were being discontinued. I passed, because I figured parts might be an issue. Now, I wish I would have bought it...

    I have a BDA .380 in nickle and walnut. I love this pistol. Never ever have had any problems with it. It's my CCW in the colder months. Very accurate right out of the box. When I get some extra (lol) cash I would like a Hi-Power in .40

    I wonder how a handgunner can get by without at least one BHP?

    Here's my buckmark Pro Target. With a truglo red dot on top. It'll put ten shots in the Xring @ 25 yds. For all you guys not in the know, That is the size of the ten ring on the October target.

    That is good shooting, Benzbuilder. How does the Buckmark compare with your HS Victor?

    I never had the pleasure to shoot a BHP, but I sure would like to. Mr.Camp has a great web page on them and many other makes. You guys should go over as theres some good reading there. Some really great guns on these pages. Man I drooled all over the place. Good luck y'all.

    The HS Victor Puts them Closer together (cover them with a quarter). The Browning has 3 or 4 out of the quarter. It is still better than I can shoot with one hand. I just prefer the HS. Better trigger, balance. Only thing, the HS likes the expensive ammo, CCI Green Tag. Here's a pic.

    The HiPower fits in my hand very well and has a nice balance to it. The cheap 9mm ammo is nice too

    Here's a couple of mine...

    My stock FN .40 S&W HP, a bargain from CDNN for $399


    My 3 Hp's together FN .40, Silver Chrome 9mm MKIII, and a Matte 9mm MKIII


    I plan on sending the .40 out to Novak's for a C&S Combat Trigger, Safety and trigger job. I have some Black Micarta and Rosewood grips I need to put these as too.

    9mm handguns have never been my thing, but when I shot my first Hi Power, my opinion changed somewhat. When I bought my first Hi Power I immediately took it to the range....I was hooked and I really like the BHP platform. To say the least my opinion has changed about the caliber and weapons they are in.

    A gently used Mark 3 that I picked up earlier this week.


    A 77C that was my first Hi Power, and the one I am making some changes to. I hvve stippled the front & rear grip straps, changed out the thumb safety, trigger, sear, hammer & hammer spring with Cylinder & Slide parts. The rear sight is a Knowlin drop in that is similar to those that used to be made by McCormick. Shoots great and with the new wood grips and stippling feels great in my hand. It will be heading off for refinishing soon.


    I recently picked up another BHP in satin chrome......what a beautiful combination of chrome and blue.....and a great shooter as well.

    The most accurate Browning I own... In fact the only Browning I own.

    shipwreck,

    If you are ever down in my part of Texas or I end up in yours, I will gladly let you fire mine as much as you want. I'll bring plenty of ammunition.

    I don't have it in nickel & walnut, but I have an older 380 that looks and shoots like a dream. I believe it is the best shooting gun that I have and
    a very handsome gun, I might add.
    Made in 1984 and in excellent condition. I want to get some better grips fot it as it has rubber type grips on it now.

    Thumbs up Tink's a Browning Fan

    Hi everyone,

    Tink here.

    I'm a Browning fan, for sure.

    "Have" a Buck Mark, and a few others (CZ 75 B, S&W 1911Sc, Colt .357 Trooper)


    "Waiting" for a 1983 Bowning Hi-Power 9mm.
    I live in CA and have to wait, and wait, and wait for the state to do it's thing before I can pick up my used Browning Hi-Power

    I'll post some pics of my BHP as soon as I get it.

    TINK

    I just souped up my Buckmark URX with a 7.5" Trail-Lite barrel from Tactical Solutions and Holographic Red Dot Scope. I dialed the scope in at 20 yards and was shooting 2" groups off hand at that distance. At 50 yards I was able to shoot a 5" group. I'm really happy with these upgrades.

    Outstanding.

    Great pics guys. and we all agree a really superb gun. i've got a few handguns of various makes, models and actions kicking around. I love them all! But for pure sport, home protection, and CCW, i don't think you could one up the BHP. Just my opinion...

    (But i'll admit i keep a Crimson Trace Equipped Glock 22 (40) 'close to my head' when in bed.)

    A pair of customized Hi-Powers

    I enjoy doing work on my own pistols and these both reflect my tweaking save the bluing jobs that just replaced my over decade old well worn Gun Kote finishes I originally applied.

    FN Browning Hi-Power Mark III "project gun" built up on a 1990 forged frame and "parts bin" slide (marked Made in Belgium, Assembled in Portugal) I hand picked from Jack First Inc. [Description of mods: Slide hand fitted to frame; Craig Spegel Dark Cocobolo presentation grips; Cylinder & Slide spring kit, trigger, CS092 Type II Commander hammer; Novak Low Mount fixed sight; Olympic Arms Match barrel; Shock-Tec Recoil Spring Guide; Slide top, back, frontstrap, backstrap all hand stippled; beveled magazine well; Hogue hex grip screws; Brownell's clear matte lacquer on frame; slide reblued 5-2009.]




    FM M90 Hi-Power Detective. [Description of mods: Cylinder & Slide spring kit, trigger and safety; Craig Spegel Madagascar Rosewood presentation grips; Hogue hex grip screws; Frontstrap, Backstrap hand stippled; beveled magazine well; entire gun reblued 1995.]

    I bought this Hi Power new in '72. It has been customized by gunsmith, Lou Williamson.


    Another lightly-altered 9mm Mk III...


    This is my old "duty Hi Power". It's a Mk III with a Type I C&S ring hammer and sear, Spegal blk checkered delrin grips and Novak fixed sights. I had the gun refinished after I retired.


    This is an FN Competition Model with Spegel grips.


    another Mk III 9mm set up similarly to the "duty gun."


    This was my first Hi Power. It is a '71 commercial model, also customized by Lou Williamson decades ago.

    Best.
    Very, very nice.
