Re: Opinion wanted on Browning Hi-Power
I've got the Charles Daly Hi Power clone. I think all Hi Powers come with a magazine safety and it sucks. I disabled mine. It made the trigger pull absolutely gritty and terrible. It makes the trigger linkage drag on the magazine to be sure there is a magazine inserted. DUMB. I handled a FN (Browning) Hi Power and it had the same gritty mag safety trigger pull.
Except for the mag safety I like the look and feel of my Hi Power.
Mines 9mm. I have a 10mm Colt Delta Elite that I load to 40S&W levels and a CZ75B in 40S&W. I think it hard to tell the difference in felt recoil between those two and 45ACP as long as all are loaded with bullets of comparable weights. All three are more of a big push than the sharp rap you get out of the 9mm. Full load 10mm are a real handfull. My Colt twists in my hand with full loads. In fact its not much fun tht way and I now shoot down loaded 10mm rather than full loads about 90% of the time.
