What should I look into on a hi powered Browning I'm pretty new to any non polymer type hand gun. Also I believe I'm getting a good at 225$ any feedback on that. Thanks

I used to have a Browning Hi-Power and could kick myself for letting it get away.

Get me 4 at that price please!

Just kidding of coarse. The wife would kill me even when I told her I'd likely triple my money. Anyway, that's a heck of a deal on a Hi-Power.

If it is Belgian that is an incredible deal. If it is from portugal, Argentina, or brazil then it is an ok price dependent on condition. Good design though!

buy it and never look back! its worth it and its an awesome gun. I have the Browning BDM witch is the shorter version with a few more extras. LOVE IT! They are very well made and feel great. Anything Browning designed is good.
some gun porn to help the purchase move along!

Hmmm...anyone wanna bet it's actually an FEG clone?
for $225, I would not bet against ya on that

but if it is a true BHP, that is a great price

40 or 9mm? 9 is the way a BHP should be IMHO

love my BHP

Fit and finish look south American. Pic of the other side would tell the whole story. Only thing I don't like about them is the magazine interlock/safety. Supposed to be a 15 minute job to remove it though.
Nice shooters for sure!

not even 15 minutes to remove it, very easy, and removing improves the trigger a bit

What a steal!

Grab it!

The Hi-Power is the best shooting 9mm double stack out there. I love mine.

Even if it is an Argentine...for 225 its worth it. FN licenses the Argies to build it, so the Argentine made HPs are still real Hi-Powers. If it is indeed an Fn made Hi-Power....you got an amazing deal. Take the mag safety out and it has an almost 1911-ish trigger.

At $225, my first question is...."What's wrong with it??" :confused:

I'll add to the porn...

nice, very nice. I trained with one of those old black beauties from Inglis, and carried one often over 14 years. That early intro is what got me hooked on the BHP, and also started my interest in Browning's 1911 design. Could not buy an old Inglis BHP in Canada after I left service because of silly restrictions against selling in country as surplus, but they were sold outside Canada. Have seen them occasionally down here in AZ at gun shows, but usually for $900 or more. So I jumped when I had an opportunity to buy a slightly used newer BHP for less than half that money. The old Canadian versions will soon be worth more, because stupid government has made another stupid decision - smelting 19,000 of them. Ouch, it pained me when I read this:
