Needless to say, I'm sick to this day at having lost that Hi Power and not exactly pleased with myself for having sold the rifle.
Grade ! has an MSRP of only $620. Not bad at all for such a good quality firearm. They now catalog one that is stainless, with a synthetic stock, and an octagonal barrel. List for a bit over $900. I think I have found this years Christmas present.
