Just look at this picture I took at the range the other day. Even when I take polymer, steel and wood needs to come along to remind me what guns are supposed to feel like.

A decade or so ago, Kassnar Brothers Imports (KBI) of Harrisburg PA was importing from Hungary a perfect copy of the BHP. Parts interchangeability was 100%. At a gunshow in York, I bought one in 9mm and one in 40S&W, and they weren't too pricey, either. I traded off the 40 for a stainless Taurus 357 MAG, and though I like the Taurus, I DO miss the BHP-clone.

The only difference between the genuine and the copy was that the Hungarians sent these out with black injection-molded checkered grips - not wood.

I did, however, knock the staked-on blade front sight off, but was able to make a suitable replacement and silver-soldered it on.

Agreed but if you can only afford a chevy it will get you home. Unrelated but I have put 100k miles on my chevy impala in 19 months.

Several years ago I had a Feg HP9 a Browning Hi Power clone pistol actually very nice. Well I did the magazine spring disconnect modification to lighten the trigger pull. Then I did something very stupid.........gave this beauty to my son!! He bought himself a Springfield 9mm cannot remember the Model but a compact model for a CCW gun. Well My Feg HP 9 has set in his closet for probably 12-15 years. I recently handed down to him his grandpa's pre 64 Winchester Model 70 .270 Winchester. I asked him if he still had my HP Clone he said yes, I asked him well do you ever use it he said nope......so I asked him well if you aren't going to use it then would you mind if I take he back. He said no problem. Well a few weeks ago I got this beauty back with the 3 original magazines. This gun still looks like new beautiful bluing etc. I did touch up the white dot sights with some white paint so they show up. Cannot wait to go out to shoot this pistol, I also have a 1911 officer's sized gun in 9mm to keep it company. Its sad to hear that Browning isn't going to make the Browning HP anymore such a great design!!! But I'm glad to have my Feg HP 9 back again!!!

My long time gun friend volunteered to put in some Cylinder and Slide parts he thought I needed in one if my 1950s Hi Powers. I provided the parts and haven't seen the pistol in a year. I think he's going to keep it. I still have a backup Belgian Browning and the Israeli version. But I sold my Inglis to another friend. I think I should be more careful with friends and pistols.
