Default My newest addition

I just brought home a WWII Canadian John Inglis Browning Hi Power w/tangent sight with a wooden shoulder stock/holster.
There is also has a belt hanger for the stock and a lanyard for the pistol. Condition is about 95%.

I took the Inglis Hi Power to the range a week ago. The extractor needs to be replaced. It keeps slipping off of the case it is extracting
and results in a jam when the next round feeds. I stripped the slide, cleaned the extractor hole and bent the extractor of provide
tension on the fired casing and took it to the range 2 days ago. It worked for the first 6 shots and then went back to the earlier problem.
I ordered a new extractor from Jack First tonight. It is supposed to just be a drop-in fit. I probably should have tried the extractor
from my WWII Nazi Hi Power to see if it worked, first. Too late for that now, tho.

Sounds nice 49er. That’s quite a find. Where the heck did you find one of those? Only seen those HIgh Power models in pictures. Big fan of John M Browning designs.

Glad your shooting it. Give us a pic or two! We like em.

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.

I found this one on Gun Broker. They always have a couple being auctioned. I love the Hi Powers almost
as much as I love Mauser Broomhandles. The only gun in the safe I don't shoot is the Winchester M1D.

The extractor arrived and has been installed. I'll take it to the range tomorrow.
I found another Hi Power on GunBroker and it will arrive on Monday. Thanks to Commiefornia laws I'll have
to wait 3 weeks to do the paperwork and another 10 days after that until it can come home.

Went to the range today. The Inglis ejected all ammo without any hiccups except that the recoil spring is a little weak
and about 8 times I had to help the slide close itself. The more I shot it the better it functioned. It was fun playing
with the tangent sight and watching the bullets impacting high or low.
I also took the dedicated 22lr. Ceiner/Hi Power to the range today and ran almost 2 boxes of shells through it. I like
this setup more than the Sig 226 conversion kit; but, they are both fun shooters.
