    Sweet!

    I've fired one of those, and it was scary-accurate once a favorable load was found.
    Absolutely chewed the center out of the target.
    Congrats!

    Comp. P35

    Really neat pistol---if you shoot it much, make sure the screws holding the barrel weight on are tight---they can lossen and fly off, never to be found!

    I've already learn this one the hard way

    After cleaning it I didn't want to over tighten the screws, well one came out the next range trip.

    Luckly since I had been shooting the 50yard plates for the last 100rds or so I was able to spend 10min looking around for it and found it.
    Lesson learned and I tighten the screws up nice and firm now

    I forgot to ask you Mongo. How is the trigger, does it have the magazine safety?

    The trigger pull and break on the BHP is very good though the reset is a little long.
    The BHP Comp trigger is actually better than the Sig P210 trigger I picked up last week, though the reset on the Sig is much better.

    Thanks, sorry about the typo on your name.
    Does it have the magazine disconnect?
    Can you actually feel the reset on the trigger on the Browning.

    It has a mag disconnect, though they redesigned it on the Competition models so that it has no effect on the trigger pull unlike the normal models.

    I have a couple other BHPs one has the disconnect removed and the other is completly original and there is quite a noticeable difference between my 3 BHP's triggers.

    Thanks again Morgo. I am just up in the air about what to do about the trigger. Have a beautiful Hi Power made in 2009 with the improved target sights.
    Great pistol to look at and feels great in my hand. When it comes to press the trigger, it's Katie bar the door. It can be wonderful or turn into an abomination.

    The other one I have with the mag disconnect intact is a 1996 GP sport model with the deep blue finish, adjustable sights and timber grips. The trigger is pretty gritty and heavy as is, I was going to change it but preferred to keep that one original. The other with it removed is a Vigilante model circa 1976 the trigger is much smoother and a bit lighter as well. If your not worried about keeping it original I'd take the mag disconnect out, its fairly simple or you could have a smith do it with a trigger job at the same time.
