I have a couple of really nice HiPowers, rich dark blue luster finish. They’re museum pieces. And then I have a couple of the Israeli trade ins. They’re ok shooters. I ‘d like to find at least one commercial grade Hi Power that was sold at retail in the last ten years or so. I kept passing them up and now Browning don’t make ‘em any more. That sucks. I suspect they’ll come back one day.
There are a shit ton of “Hi Powers” out there: FEG, copies, trade ins, etc, I’d definitely research before you buy. Browning has a serial number lookup and there are about a million different Browning pages.
I’m away from my main computer but will post some serial number ranges later today.
