I just received a older model Browning Hi-Power from The Netherlands (it's an old military gun, before the Glock 17) but anyway I would like to refinish it myself with a blueing kit and change some things on it like extended safety and slide release,grip, you know the pretty much normal stuff. The problem is that I have only 1 magazine and it keeps opening up so when i'm shooting more bullets want to go in the chamber and the gun gets stuck. I always try to bend the magazine opening back but after a couple of shots same problem. I talked to the 2 gun dealers that we have here on the Island and 1 of them can't get a new magazine because he only deals Glock handguns and the other 1 is telling me that he has them but he has to look for them, in the mean time i'm still waiting (6 weeks). Can't I in any way fix the magazine? and where is the best place to get Browning parts online because I really have problems getting the parts I want.
I will be visiting Miami Florida in Oktober again with my wife and kids so maybe I could order some thing and bring them down with me.
I don't understand your problem but you might want to go to this site and post your question. Mr.Camp who runs it is the most knowledgeable man I know of when it comes to the High Power Pistol. Bunch of good folks there. Good luck. http://www.hipowersandhandguns.com/index.html
