    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...

    I’ve owned a good amount of BHP’s over the years. Only two of them were “custom guns", or had custom work to them. One was a fully optioned out pistol that was. build in a way that way very limited and very special... sadly, I just didn’t love it and decided to part ways with her. The other...

    Had an inquisitive mind today so I thought I’d do a little reading. Some of you may know and some my not. JMB (1911 creator) was one of 22 children born of his father Johnathan Browning who was also a gunsmith and converted to The Church of Later Day Saints (Mormon)and had three wives, or as we...

    I have both calibers and I have questions about the recoil springs. I called Browning and ordered new recoil springs and was told both the .22 and the .380 use the same recoil spring. I found this odd but hey I need to trust their service, and what do I know, right? So I ordered some and they...

    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...

    There is an old Marine that lives right across the street from me. He has taken note of my affinity for the 1911 and occasionally gives me little niceties from his life long collection. Last weekend he gave me an Army Technical Manual for the M1911A1 Automatic Pistol. This little manual is...

    Well a bunch of you on here now I just started my first project on a 1911 slide with a newer mill. I had plans of making some specific cuts on this gun that it now appears I have already come to a road block. I have no way to measure the slot for the bushing, but by mere appearance only I can...
