Re: Met Up with an Old Friend...

My Hi power is rock solid reliable and should pretty much last forever. Occasionally someone has a problem, but I have never heard anyone complain about them being "finicky" like people do about 1911s.

The HP was designed to be a military weapon and use FMJ ammo. Older model Hi Powers (and there are still a lot of those around) had a "humped" feed ramp that works great with FMJ, but sometimes not so well with hollowpoints. FN redesigned the feed ramp in the 1980s I think with the Mark II version, and all modern ones work just fine with FMJ. With a skilled touch the older humped feed ramps can be lightly flattened a bit to work with hollowpoint ammo if you want a shooter instead of a historical piece.

Re: Met Up with an Old Friend...

On another forum, you once mentioned that when burglar (I think) you were hunting suddenly stepped out in front of you, you discovered a Hi Power would fit in a burglar's mouth right up to the ejection port. Is this that Hi Power? ;-)
