I owned a great High Power while working in Europe with some fellas. When I left, my partner, an Interpol guy, conned it out of me. Actually gave it to him as a parting gift thinking I would replace it, but I never did and should get one now but not being a collector I will stick to my Sigs.

My one and only. Don't shoot it much but do enjoy looking at it.

They do for me. But I have big hands, and get slide bite or hammer bite from a number of different handguns.

Have several HPs which have been my favorite for years. I got a WWII bring back that was chromed plated. Made at FN for the German Armory.Has the 3AD pin inletted in the right grip. All complete but the slide stop has a bit broken off. Don’t know what it’s worth. Any ideas?


Officers lives matter!

Mine doesn't bite me and I have meaty hands and a high grip. the P230 bites me bad but the Hi Power doesn't.

I'm afraid it may be case-by-case. I have the Novak "No Bite" hammer on mine, and I still get a little red rectangular mark at the top of the web of my hand after a range session.

That's freaking hilarious. Browning does not now manufaccture, and never has manufactured, the High Power (aka P35, Hi-Power) pistols.

Browning is nothing more than a distributor and/or importer of firearms made by other companies.

High Powers with Browning markings are made by Fabrique Nationale-Herstal.

Also, ridiculous. While the design originated with Browning, the majority of the design, including arguably it's most important/influential feature, the removable staggered (aka, double stack) magazine, was the "brainchild" of Dieudonné Saive, not Browning.

FWIW, it's not listed on FN Herstal's website either.
