I was fondling one this weekend, seemed to fit my hand well and I bet it would be more concealable than my Glock or Sig.

Looks like they only make it in 9mm and .40. If there are any aftermarket .357Sig barrels available I'd probably buy it next weekend.

BHP practical 9mm, customized to my tastes.



I'm very happy with it. no qualms about it being a 9 vs a .40. Obviously, if you wanted .357SIG, you'd need to buy the .40 and get the aftermarket barrel.

I have seen a 1 slide failure and the recoils springs die quick on the .40 ones (don't know why}

the 9mm guns are more than proven though

of course YMMV

I have a 9mm, Canadian Manf.

It fits my hand like no other, great guns.

They are single stacked, right? Seems like a lot of gun to carry around to only have a limited amount of 9mm. If I was going to carry a cocked and locked single stack pistol, it would be 1911.

Hi Powers are double stacked (first ever I believe), 9mm standard mag holds 13, .40S&W holds 10.

I have had my 40 for about 4 years now. No problems.

I've owned two BHP Practicals, both in 9mmP. I still have one. No complaints with either of them.

I've owned a couple. You'll have to do a trigger job first thing. It seems it's against FN/Brownings religion to install nice triggers.

I have one similar to the picture above. I dont have the Novaks installed yet, or the forged hammer.

I love to shoot this handgun! I dont know what more to say. It fits like a glove, shoots very well, and is very reliable.

There is a list of things I wish to change about, but all in good time, I suppose. I would stipple the front and rear of the grips, Novak tritium Bar/Dot sights, C&S ambi safety, C&S forged hammer.

The triggers on BHPs arent great, but its because of the trigger disconnect. Remove that, and the trigger isnt bad at all.

I had a BHP that I spent a ton of money having customized. I replaced the hammer, trigger, sear, and safety with Cylinder and Slide parts and had a gunsmith remove the mag disconnect and do some work to smooth up the trigger and internals. I then sent it off to Robar and had the frame refinished in black Rogaurd and the slide, barrel, and parts done in the matte grey Np3. I also bought some cocobolo grips and Milt Sparks VM-II and double mag carrier for it. It was a nice pistol.

That's a good looking piece there. I've been giving some thought to one, but I'd have to find a hell of a deal on one to get it.
