    At a gun show today a seller had a few BHPs in a case. There was a ‘69 C series with a price tag of $1325, said he’d take $1300. The bluing is in great shape, but it’s got typical very faint scratches on the slide, more on the high points of the slide lines, that you’d expect for a 50 year old...

    It seems there are differing opinions on the webs as to optimal spring weights for a BHP without the mag disconnect. I purchased a BHP on here that @Lamey had already done some fantastic work on. I'm leaning towards sending it to Novaks, since they quoted 2-3 months, for the Spec Ops package...

    Recently picked up this '67 BHP in a local deal. While I have owned many different flavors of the Belgium made Hi Powers over my many years, my soft spot is the early MKI T Series. My questions concern the what appears to be a carbon steel blued barrel and the inspection/import/export marks...

    Got a new Hi Power that deserves a nice holster, and wondered if anyone has something they're willing to sell. Thanks for the help in advance, IWB, don't hesitate to bring out the exotics, I know we've got some fine tastes around here!:cool:

    I can't find anyone local in Virginia that does hard chromingso it looks like I will have to send it out. Any suggestions on where I should send it.

    Picked up a surplus Mauser-labeled Hi Power recently and would love to send it out. Not looking for a fully tweaked setup, just someone to make it sound. Trigger is heavy but not gritty. Looking for: - full respring - lighter trigger pull - reliability - whack the sights in line Not looking...

    Didn't think I'd ever sell this one, but since I'm on the list to have another BHP built by Ted I know I won't use both. This is one of Ted's SRT conversions on a T-series BHP. Besides the usual SRT features it was upgraded by Ted with a fitted KKM precision barrel. The gun remains in as new...

    Title says it all except the refinish. It is 10x Precision ( Alex Hamilton) polymer coated. It is recommended this slide be used on a pre-MK III. The 9mm feedway geometry was changed when the frame was changed to accomodate .40 S & W. I just posted a pre-MK III pistol in firearms classified. :-)...

    The C and the T were made in 1969. The ONLY change is the SN. This was true until 1971. In 71 Browning went to the cast spur hammer. This pistol comes with the original red backed blond wood grips. Larry Davidson bio hazard ball grips available for fifty additional dollars. The pistol will...

    I almost started this last night, but abruptly stopped myself realizing what a mess I could've gotten into. Has anyone here successfully hand filed carry cuts? How about beveling the bottom of the slide? If so, how did you do it to maintain straight lines? On slide beveling, this is what I'm...

    Craig Spegel called me last night 02/07/17 to see if I still needed French Walnut Browning Hi-Power grips. A friend and I had already received ours last year and they are absolutely awesome. Craig may have some left, give him a call as these usually have a long wait time...

    looking for a nice custom BHP in 9mm, let me know

    We all know the trigger reset is a little meh on MK3 BHPs once you take out the mag safety. You have two options on trigger springs available. My understanding is the MK2s and earlier came with a more stout 2 coil spring, where as the MK3s come with a lighter 3 coil spring. Heres my limited...

    I have a Novak tuned BHP. I like the gun a lot, but I have ran into some issues that are concerning to me. I somewhat made the transition from .45 to 9mm due to this BHP. I can shoot it really well and it conceals nicely. My issue I have noticed is this. When shooting 147 grain 9mm ammunition I...

    I figured I would post this here since there is has not been much chatter about Elite Warrior Armament. Its been a while since I talked about this pistol on any forum, and I was actually hesitant to do so. I really do not want to go there in this thread so, let keep it civil:) I remember...
