I hate hard decisions


Recommended Posts

There is a local person selling a Browning Hi Power from 1990.  It looks good from the pictures.  He asked $1000 but said he would take $850.  I have always liked Hi Powers and it is on "the list" to acquire.  But I just got this...

Here is the Hi Power...

Ain't that life deals show up in bunches... unfortunately it's usually inversely to funds in the toys account :embarrassed:

Up here the Hi Power to try and get is an Inglis Hi Power, Canadian built pistol by a company better known for appliances.

Get better pics, since it's 1990.  The Browning Hi Power had 82 years of continuous production, which ended in 2018. Get better pics of the production stamps on this thing, before you go batshiit crazy over it.  Get detailed pics, from the seller, of the slide markings.

Or, buy the new FN Hi Power, which is superior to the original in every single way, with improvements. 

Don't trade your SOUL for this thing, brother...  :lmao:  See what it is first, since it's a 1990...

Any one here had the opportunity to buy a New Springfield Armory or EAA made in Turkey cloned Hi Power 9MM?

The info I have on the SA HP is that it's superior (out of the box) to the original. No mag safety to remove, reduced or totally missing hammer bite, I wish I had one but I'm not going to sell my HP from '73 to get one. I had lots of work done to mine, sights, trigger, NP3 coating, Bar-Sto barrel. Mine hasn't had a mag safety for decades.

If I was thinking of a HP today it would be the SA version w/o a doubt. That would also put some time between acquisitions.

I think you'll like it Sisco (from what I've read about it). It's basically the HP v 2.0 with everything fixed that folks paid big bux to get fixed in years past. I wish mine didn't bite me. But I'll lose too much $ to sell mine, buy new, and start all over again. The things that were wrong with the HP doomed it to newer designs and Browning didn't make changes. SA did, and if you're going to make a "new" handgun why not fix it from the get go? Back slaps to SA! If you get one let us know how you like it. IMO the HP has the best ergonomics of any handgun ever made. I'd like to know if SA perfected it.

Yep, unless you are after some historical context with a specific era pistol the new version is the way to go.......

.......or the advertising is good cause I want one of those FN versions myself for some reason.
