I had to pass on a excellent FN a few weeks ago. This thread is like salt in a wound :crying:

two beautiful platforms right there! Too bad the Hi-Power wasnt a hit like the 1911. I have seen some custom ones that are very eye catching

I think part of the problem is that it was designed around a European cartridge.

If you consider the entire world and not just the US, the HP rivals the 1911 in popularity. In fact, in some areas its more popular than the 1911. Obviously, its not in this country.

Perfectly. It's like a slimmed down commander. It's just light enough to not drag my jeans down like a 1911 and it's a little thinner and shorter too.

If you carry IWB and don't have a Hi-Power, you're missin' out big time, it's almost everything you love about a Glock 19 and a 1911...

Ouch :shocked:

It was a cast framed model that had been sitting in a guys safe for years. It couldn't have had more than a 50 rounds fired through it, it was perfect.

Only $475 too...I'm kicking myself now. I hate bad timing and self-control.

Dammit! That's exactly what I'm lookin' for. I want a MK III FN, without the Browning rollmark.

Well, that sort of thing has probably happened to all of us at one time or another.

Yeah, they definitely go togther. I think they are #s 1 & 2 on the list of all-time classic pistols. Better make that 1a and 1b...and which is which probably doesn't really matter.

Yeah, I have to agree with that. :)

The Hi-Power is certainly my favorite 9mm. Maybe not the best, but my favorite.

I had the chance to buy a WWII 1911 slip past me. I am pretty sure it was stolen by a druggie, but it deserved a good safe home. He wanted 300 and I wasn't sure if it would be smart to buy it, knowing it could have been stolen. I kick myself real hard now.:faint:

I keep telling myself that, it still would have been nice to have a piece of history. Thanks for not rubbing it in. lol

He said it was from his grandpa, that he didn't need a gun and wanted to get rid of it. Of course thats what all shady characters say when you get rid of a gun. I feel bad for whoever it may have come from, he could have been telling the truth.
