I own two High Powers. One is a 1984 chrome Browning HP and the second is a Charles Daly HP I just bought a week ago. Nothing really needs to be said about a Browning High Power; it's a 70 year old classic with adjustable sights. I bought mine used (but without any discernible use) for $650, which included 3 OEM 13-round magazines.
Then I started seeing reviews in various gun magazines about Charles Daly's new HP, with a US-made slide and foreign components, all of which are assembled for Charles Daly (by Dan Wesson, I believe) in Massachusetts. I bought mine on the Internet from Ordnance Outsellers in Tallahassee, FL for $380 (list price is $549). I am more than pleased with the pistol's workmanship, slide to frame fit, and reliable operation. Plus, the Express Sights XS sight system is perfect for a service-type pistol. Functionally, I am equally pleased with both my High Powers, and for literally half the price, the Daly is hard to beat. By the way, it is a High Power clone in every respect, and HP magazines are compatible with it. Whether Browning/FN parts are interchangeable with the Daly, I can't say.
Hope this comparison information helps you decide.
I took your advice and looked at the Charles Daly HP. After inspecting the Daly HP I compared prices to a "real" Browning and decided that the Browning was not twice as good. I want the HP to shoot not as an investment. So I put one one layaway yesterday.
I didn't get the super price you got but did OK for California. I would have bought it outright but, as I bought another pistol 21 days ago and I can only buy one every 31 days (thanks, California anti-gunners) I have to wait about 10 days to start the paper work (DROS-state personal check, federal forms, affidavit for ownership of a safe, validation of having taken safety test, Driver license and second source of address plus wait 10 days although the DROS check is instantaneously done by computer). A friend was along and wanted to buy a Ruger 22 pistol. It was going to cost him about $100 in fees and sales tax for a $250 gun as he had not taken the "new" safety test, the DROS fees had escalated, and the nearly 9% sales tax. He walked away and bought a gun off a friend.
