I agree. Same with 1911s, if they ain't 45 ACP they are just not the same.

No. But it's easy to make more with these new fangled digital cameras. I liked your picture with the slide back. It kind of gives folks perspective on the GPs front sight and counterweight. I don't want to copy yours, so I might do a picture with my Hi Power and my Glock 34 (my PPC guns). If I position the gun cases right, I could have 13 magazines showing.

Oh yeah. I suppose you've had yours come loose at the range a few times. I finally lost one at a shoot last year. The new Frankenstein bolts are held tight by a lock washer.

Its in great excellent condition for its age, mines a 87 model.

When I bought mine I field stripped and oiled it, I thought to myself at the time that I don't want to over tighten the screws Well I lost one next range trip, after 10 minutes of crawling around I found it again though

The parkerized finish on mine has held up well.

I have a game plan for when the screws finally strip. I have a second set of screws which are a quarter inch longer and a nut for the other side. Meanwhile, I am very careful not to overtighten them. The nice thing about the stock cone shaped screws is that they bottom out before you strip the threads. My solution is dependent on me being an accurate human torque wrench.

I've crawled around at the range looking for my bolts a few times. When I finally lost one, I didn't notice it until I was home. The Home Depot allen heads at least have the distinction of looking unique.

I might have to look at getting some copies of the screws made up while I still have them

Thanks. I was inspired by your pictures. I'd love to have a standard HiPower.
btw, Are those Pachmayr's on your standard HiPower? They look grippy and well padded. How do you like them compared to the GP Competition Pachmayr's?

They are a set of Hogues on the standard Hi Power. They feel and shoot quite well, but the Pachmayrs on the competiton model fit my hand better but are a little more slipery though compared to the Hogue grips.

I like the padded backstraps on the Pachmayr's, but the finger grooves on those Hogues look good.

Can't help but be inspired by the superb examples of Hi-Powers here. My humble contribution to this thread. 2 BHP's i acquired some 30 years ago from an uncle of mine. they were pretty worn outside and quite rusty. Kept them oiled till I recently met a good smith who did some pretty good custom finishes on them. Would have loved to have refinished them in original blue but I carry them a lot now so I reckon I'd go for some tough finishes on them. I hope you like it. Regards to all.
