    Before my dad passed away, he gave me his Browning Hi Power

    Bought an EFK Firedragon Dual Action Spring System to help reduce frame wear (For an old pistol)

    Got a couple of Hex screws for the pistol

    Beautiful pistol KevlarSix! It's tough to lose a father but a firearm like that is a great heirloom to remember him by. Thanks for sharing with the forum!

    I found the EFK Firedragon Frame Saver Recoil Assembly to be defective.

    EFK sent me a new one and I also bought a Garthwaite Competition Trigger as well

    [​IMG]

    Installed the parts to the Browning Pistol. Trigger pull is now much better

    Leather lining to protect the finish on your pistol

    Fits the Browning Hi Power like a glove

    Recently added this Browning Hi-Power to my collection. Been a long time coming...

    [​IMG]

    This is a current production Mark III that I wanted to use for carry and competition.

    [​IMG]

    I had Richard Fletcher from http://www.fletchercustompistols.com add a Cylinder & Slide Commander hammer/sear set with Heine Slant Pro dark serrated rear sight...

    [​IMG]

    Along with a Dawson Precision front fiber optic and Fletcher's carry trigger work (which enhances the pull without removing the magazine safety.)

    [​IMG]

    The Hogue rubber grips, while not what I would dress this pistol up with for a trip down the runway, feel great in the hand and while shooting at speed.

    [​IMG]

    All in all I am very please with this pistol. Can't think of another mid-size pistol that points or holds better!
