Nice gun. Jim did my Hi-Power and a Colt 1911 for me. They are both great guns. Jim is a great guy and does excellent work. I think that you will be very pleased with how it shoots and how reliable it is. Congrats!

Very nice looking pistol. Is that style of hammer relieved at all to help prevent hammer bite? I spoke with the folks at Novak's and was told that there is no way to prevent hammer bite on a commander style hammer. Thanks.

Congrats! I have a Garthwaite Hi Power and it is one of the finest handguns I own. I am sure you will treasure yours too.

Very nice. I've owned two different hi-powers from Garthwaite. Both were exceptional. Sold both, unfortunately, but the habit must be fed in some manner until I am wealthy enough to actually keep everything that I buy or have built...:(

No way to prevent hammer bite on a commander-style hammer on a BHP? You're kidding me. Just cut a relief on the back of the type I commander hammer just like Novak's does with spur hammers. The type II commander hammer looks like you would have a hard time doing that, though...

I've actually been thinking about the type II hammer and how to prevent hammer bite if I got one. The only thing that I can think of is to weld it up a little on the inside and then cut a relief in it...:mad:
