Congratulations on the Lahti, I will take you at your word it happened.
You will keep us up to date on this, I know.
If you had your eye on my Hi-Power you could make all three of us happy,
you, me, Santa,
It's about 1975 manufacture, Belgium, has Packmyers, no original grips.
best wishes

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Thanks , with out digging it out of the redoubt vault my recollection is it to be a "Y" year.

I will be ever so tickled to receive the mortar, have Civil War ancestors, maybe a few on the southern side in the Shenandoah Valley, and look forward to be reunited on the other side.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Can't think of any reason not to love Hi-Powers or unique autos like the Lahti and the Broomhandle.
They're quality handguns and aren't made anymore. Have to admit, I've never shot a .40 Hi-Power;
but the gun is heavy enough that it should be much more pleasant to shoot than a Beretta M96.
I was looking at the auction site and spotted another Belgian Hi-Power. I'm gonna have to talk
with my dealer about something before I bid on it, tho.

I couldn't for the life of me figure out why you had to wait 3 more weeks to get it until I looked at your location....sorry.

Being Swedish made I'm sure it's built like a tank and the parts are fitted like a fine watch.

Look like this?


Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

Yep, looks exactly like that except the grips are brown and on the other side of the slide there are markings indicating that it was part of
a contract for the Danish government during WWII.
Commiefornia's governor doesn't think very highly of it's gunowners and keeps imposing new rules, regs, and fees against us. Lots of
people are moving away. I'm over 65 and my whole life is as a Californian: friends, Dr., banking, shopping, etc. Too much to pull up stakes and
move somewhere else.

I had range duty this afternoon. I took the Lahti with me and put 2 boxes of shell through it. The backstrap is kind of narrow and
the web of my hand by my thumb was being pounded. I put a shooting glove on and cured that. The accelerator guarantees
that recoil is sharp. I need to shoot it more in the future to get a better handle on the mechanics of it.

I used to have a Husqvarna.
It reliably fired and fed what I had on hand, more accurate than I could shoot it.
The darn lt side thumb safety has a sharp edge to it and can over time chaffe the hide raw.
