Very cool.

I had a very nice early post war commercial Belgium Hi-Power, complete with box, that was issued to a West German police inspector. Lost that in the great divorce. Talk about mixed feelings.......

Shot a buddy's Hi Power a couple weeks ago...

What a fine pistol!

I thought I wold get slide-bite, with my big, meaty hands, but never had a problem.

You've got a very nice collection there.

Thank you oldster. The FEG is indeed a solid performer and I got it very reasonably (just north of $300.00). Regarding the FN grips, the gentleman I purchased it from a few years ago couldn't remember the brand of grips and since there are no identifying markings ... I'm uncertain They are both great shooters and in terms of accuracy, very similar as you can see in the comparison target below.
