I just aquired my first Hi-Power, a true Belgian Browning made in 1969.

Question: did they have magazine safeties on this vintage?

Mine does not, meaning that I can drop the hammer without a magazine inserted, and I'm wondering if it has been tinkered with in the past 30 years or so.

Also anyone know of any internet Hi-Power sites worth visiting?

Thanks for the input,
Cheers, Otto

Sounds like it was already removed by a previous owner.
Any possible legal issues aside, removing the magazine disconnector enhances the trigger pull.
But now it will fire with the mag removed and a round in the chamber, just like most guns out there anyway.
Be aware of that fact and enjoy.
A lot of folks ask about how to remove them all the time.

Thanks.
Both answers in under 2.5 hours. Whadda site!

I think I'd be more concerned about the gun NOT firing when the trigger is pulled with a round in the chamber and the magazine removed.

I only knew about the possibility of there ever being a mag safety installed when a guy I showed it to saw me lower the hammer with the mag out to put it away.

Thanks again,
Cheers, Otto
