    Question FNH Hi-Power-can't decide

    I have never owned a Hi-Power, but have heard excellent stuff. I found 2, new, for $425 each. Tell me good and bad about the pistol.
    Thanks

    I have never shot one but they are suppose to be very good guns. I usually hear people have less reliability issues with them compared to 1911s. If you want one then I think it would be a damn good buy!

    I have owned several and it is one of my favorite 9mm pistols. To me they have the best ergonomics of any of the high capacity nines. The only bad thing about them, to me is the stock trigger pull is usually lousy, but it is not hard to cure. If it is an FN Hi-Power for $425 new, don't pass it up.

    I've shot a couple. I really like the way they feel and handle. It's one of those classic handguns that everyone should probably have in their collection. Browning's a genius, what more can we say??

    If it is an FN HP that is a good price. If it is a Belgium Browning, that's a steal!
    Just stay away from the Charles Daly or the FEG's. Both of those are hit or miss as far as functional problems. The quality is sub-standard. I've own two of these clones. One was OK, the other was a POS.
    A Belgium BHP is your best gun. They will be marked," Made in Belgium/Assembled in Portugal".
    The FN versions are good guns also.
    Get a BHP. You won't regret it.
    I've owned three Belgium HP's. The one I have now is a Belgium HP Hard Chrome.
    It is my most accurate semi-auto.

    Ditto what every else said - you won't be sorry if you buy it. It will probably become one of your favorites.

    Sweet guns

    The Hi-Power is a great gun. The short grip length isn't great for me as a range run and I would have to put on an extended safety, but they are reliable and easy to shoot with very good accuracy. That sounds like a very good price as well.
