Did the Hi-Powers that would have been bought new in '71 have a hammer block?????? Did they have a half-cock? I bought one in August, and I think I remember carrying it hammer all the way down on a loaded chamber...I'm a lefty...no ambi safeties then...anyone know for sure???? I got rid of it within a few months...got a .45....
I have a Hi-Power from that era, a '70's T-series model, and yes it does have the half-cock position, but no firing pin block.
Thanks for the reply...wonder I didn't blow my young ... off back then...you don't know what you don't know!!!
I'd think it would be very difficult to have this type of AD with a HP, firing pin block or not. The firing pin is shorter than the slide channel, plus it has a pin spring. These together would, IMO, make adding a fp block as they have now, unnecessary.
