Very nice looking weapon. I've really been looking hard at hi powers as of late even though I never really stopped looking. You do some beautiful work and just bookmarked it for future use.

Mr Fletcher, your work is top notch and excellent.

You have done some work for me in the past, and I was very pleased those times. Thank you for posting this in the BHP sub forum

Please consider posting this Hi Power over in Sig Forum .com, there are a lot of BHP fans there including me. Today some one posted their puchase of a pristine .30 Luger HP.

I’m considering new sights for a FM Detective which has the Mark II style staked front sight. I find them too small and dark. Is machining a front dovetail the only realistic way to go in this situation to allow for effective replacement sights?

Have not seen a more beautiful High Power. Personally do not care for the mag well. But then it’s not my gun. Excellent work.

Responding to a couple of questions:
- Full custom projects are currently 12 - 14 months turnaround.
- Milling the slide is best option for sight replacement.

Beautiful Hi-Power Sir! Don Williams recently built me a heavily modified Hi-Power with mostly C&S parts, including the C&S Magwell as you used on your fine build.

Really like how yours looks, very well done!

Beautiful BHP!
I really like that melted Bo-Mar rear sight...it looks fantastic on a Hi Power slide.
The low profile mag well looks great also.
Any chance I could get a picture of the mag well from the bottom and see how well it blends into the frame?

Looks like this was started a while ago, but like gonzo said that's a great looking pistol. Love that low profile sight.
