Hello.


This is a 9mm Mk III with probably the first set of Mr. Hakan Pek's Hi Power grips to reach this country. The hammer spur has been bobbed and the right-side thumb safety lever removed and the shaft rounded. The gun's been refinished as well.


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.

Stephen, you have a really nice Hi-Power collection. The BHP is one of my favorite double stack nines, the grip is outstanding. I only have a couple, this is my unfired T-series safe queen (I wish I could take good pics, the bluing is awesome)

and this is my shooter, a MKIII that I changed the hammer, trigger and safety.

Great new area to the forum!

One question: should an M1911 go in the Browning area, or the 1911 area?

Hi Shipwreck :oops:
Sorry about that COLT picture. The other day I was thinking that it was too bad some one had not put a thread in this section and would have post except I had no Browning Pictures. I thought of the Colt then but didn't think it would work until Alaskan Viking's about the 1911. I promise to be good.
I have got to say John Moses Browning designed a lot of good hand guns especially the 1911. Colt did not sell an auto pistol that was not initiatially designed by Browning until 1990 when the All American 2000 flopped onto the market. By the way wasn't the BROWNING BDA-380 a BERETTA and the BDA 9mm, 38 super and 45 ACP a SIG? Thanks

Browning also makes an excellent line of semi-auto .22 LR handguns they call the "Buck Mark" series. This series includes over 30 variations on the theme. Here's a couple of the more popular models:

1). The Buck Mark "Camper"

2) The Buck Mark "Standard"

3) The Buck Mark "Bullseye"


Like I said there are over 30 models of the Buck Mark .22's. These are just a sampling. Note the beautiful 7" fluted barrel and wood furniture on the "Bullseye". The "Camper" is one of the lower-end models, price-wise (I paid just $225 for mine).

All of the Buck Marks I've ever fired were top notch guns. They all have excellent, smooth-as-butter, factory triggers and are probably the most accurate handguns I have ever fired - bar none.

Very glad to see a Browning section go up here. It got me to register, Hi All.

My BHP 9mm in satin chrome....sweeeeet shooter.


Since FN is the manufacturer for Browning handguns, I'm going to put this shot of my FNP9 here. It is as good a place as any, isn't it?


:) :) :) Have fun..Be safe.:) :) :)

Hello, Bob Wright:

I helped Mr. Pek in his early efforts to make Hi Power grips. In his country he could not easily own a Hi Power. I sent him photos and measurements and this exchange went back and forth for a while. Eventually he was able to buy a deactivated Hi Power for his "template" work. He sent me the "prototype" grips to check on several Hi Powers before he came out with that line of grips and I was allowed to keep it.

Best.
