BHPs are sweet. I keep trying to get my brother-in-law to give me his but for some reason he wants to keep it...

Yeah, that'd be a hell of a base for a build up gun.

If I didn't have a full plate of STAR BKM's for my 9's I'd have to really look close at those. Personally, I wish I had bought the Inglis's with the long range sights and holster stocks when they were $70.00 or so.

"Yeah, that'd be a hell of a base for a build up gun."

Wouldn't it, though?

II'm thinkin real hard about that actually.

A bit of kit from novak and C&S, a trip to Robar, and a call to Herrets....

This is my IDPA gun. Never held another 9mm that felt as good as a BHP. Bought new a couple of years ago from CDNN, the SFS works as advertised, the trigger is outstanding out of the box, accuracy is terrific, and absolutely NO hammer bite. You'll never regret the purchase. Only downside is I haven't had the nerve to detail strip the thing yet, unlike my other "standard" BHP which comes apart in a jiffy.

You can go to Cylinder & Slide's web page. They have the exploded-view drawings of the SFS hammer assembly, and possibly the installation instructions. I put one in my Kimber 1911, and it's literally a drop-in part. (I don't detail-strip my Kimber when I clean it, though. I leave the hammer in place.)

The High-power is definitive proof that Browning was an artist. Only 9mm that I've ever really enjoyed shooting.

I'll probably run into others, but so far I'm not a 9mm fan. Though I am always open for trying new firearms.

Beauty! The BHP is why I often make the statement "There has been no significant improvement in handgun design since 1935."

I've never seen the point of the SFS, I carry it Condition One as JMB (peace be unto his name) intended. Seems to me just another opportunity for Mr Murphy to interject himself with no real benefit, but I'd rather have an HP with it than any other handgun with or without it.

And don't forget a call to Novak's for the sights..

Things that appear right after you lay down a bunch of money for other stuff...

I just found an all original, 1918 vintage, Remington made M1917 rifle...right after my wife rear ended someone and I laid down $700 to get some trees removed from my yard.

Hopefully I can get that all paid off before the rifle disappears, because the seller doesn't take Visa.

Kevin, if only I had known you when the UK's pistol ban came in, you could have had mine for safe keeping. Sadly now she is gone ... gone the way of my (semi auto) FN-FAL; both crushed by the weight of prejudice & pernicious legislation

Kevin, thanks for the thought. I've looked at the C&S diagrams and still don't want to pull the thing apart (I don't see any assembly instructions on ther web site.) I've recently "discovered" Gun Scrubber (which seems to leave metal perfectly clean but absolutely dry) and have cleaned the SFS works that way - Gun Scrubber, then CLP shot in with an aerosol tube, then blow out the excess with compressed air. Seems to leave things well lubed but not drippy.
