My FM Hi-Power

Bought it today when I went to my FFL to pick up my tec-22. It was lonely and on consignment when I bought my Bul back in February. Low and behold, 3 months later, it's still there. It needed to come home.

Best I can tell, it's an FM M95, with a Pachmayr extended slide lock, and ambi-safety. It has tru-glo night sights, but they're a bit old, and a little dim. They still glow, but I think they could use an update. The baked on enamal is about 80%, but there's an area of touch-up, that looks like crap. Wonder if I could clean it up and have it blued? May go a professional finish, as I want this to be a carry gun. $341 for BHP, FFL transfer, and tax. Not bad?

ETA: Just got back from the range, with it. Federal 115gr FMJ, hydrashoks, it doesn't care. It eats anything. Ran 5 mags through it with 1 failing to lock to the rear at empty, but I only have 1 mag (for now), so coulda been dirty? Dry? bad ammo? Cleaned lubed it when I got home. Filled it with hydrashoks and love my new BHP.
