Browning Hi-Power

Post by DoubleTap » February 4th, 2011, 1:30 pm

This was the very first handgun I ever bought, back in the day when you could buy a brand new Hi-Power for well under $400. I’ve put thousands of rounds through it, everything from top of the line commercial ammunition to nasty old, corrosive milsurp junk. Whenever I shoot corrosive, I just pop the barrel out, grab a nylon brush, and scrub the heck out of it in the kitchen sink with lots of hot water and dishwashing liquid (must work too, because the barrel still looks like new). Quite accurate and a nice shooter! :D

I bought mine new around 1970ish. Traded it off a couple of years later...
