I’m certain that some who toted Inglis No.1 & Pistole 640(b) Hi-Powers across Europe might question the civility of their times ;-)

That said, one day soon I hope to scratch a Fallschirmjäger Pistole 640(b) off the bucket list.

I second that Twist. Very glad I ordered one from them. Typical of me not being sure which grips, I just ordered both, ha.

One of my dream guns was an FBI HRT Hi-Power.

'58 bhp

This '58 BHP is a sweet shooter. Very accurate. Nice trigger. Smooth. Put some slimmer grips (not shown) on and it feels so good in hand. Took out the mag disconnect which makes a considerable difference. Put in an 18lb spring and shoot 9mm Nato.

Have had no problems at all! Love shooting it. One of my favorites.

Love the early models with the internal extractor, same as I had.

I'm a very long time fan, owned quite a few since the '60s and still have three. Even though the modern plastic pistols are cheaper, hold more ammo, have rails,etc., I've never had a desire to trade in a Hi Power on the latest tactical plastic

Of all the firearms I've owned and shot over the years, the BHP is still the one I'm most accurate with. Maybe it's the ergonomics, as it just feels right in my hand. It's one of my favorite weapons. The only reason I don't use it as my EDC is the cost of having to replace it should I ever have to use it for SD. With the BHP now out of production, the cost for one is just going to keep going up.
