Isn't Exactly the Prettiest Gun I Own

A Mk.III Browning Hi-Power (1992 date code):


It's Israeli surplus, marked with a small Star of David on the other side. The interior of the barrel is in fine shape. It's been carried a lot and apparently shot some, judging by the breech face. Lockup is solid. The trigger isn't gritty, but it is a little heavy.

Field-stripping and a bit of oil is in the cards, as it seems a little dry. Then it will be off to the range.

If you still go by this: stinsongal@gmail.com. Then you will be contacted by the Martian Manhunter. I have a BHP that needs to be in hands that will use it.

Oh, nice! I almost bought one of those but other projects got in the way. Good gun for the money, esp. with the ambi safety.
