    I recently purchased a Browning Hi Power 1977 model Belgium made.It will shoot the federal Hydra Shok 124 ammo, without any problems. When I shoot the Rem. UMP or Win. it will not eject properly. Some eject, others won't. I do not want to send it back to Browning, so I decided to sell it. I am asking $375.00, plus shipping. It is 95%, probally close to 98%. I want to be honest, with the sale. I do have the zipper case it came in, also excellant. If anyone has interest, plese e-mai; xxxbubby54@cox.netxxx drop the x's.

    The Hi-Power likes hot ammo. If you must shoot American target fodder, get a reduced power recoil spring from Wolff Springs. They VERY SELDOM give any trouble. When I performed warranty service and repair for Browning, I NEVER had one come in for repair. NOT ONE EVER.

    I love both of my Hi-Powers...my 9mm is more accurate than the .40 cal, but both will equal the best revolvers on paper

    Bubby, It's your gun and you can sell it for $375 if you want but I think it is worth more. As coach said, a different recoil spring will likely cure the cycling problem. This is a ten dollar fix that takes about 5 minutes. I paid $650 for a hard chromed Hi Power about ten years ago. Tens of thousands of rounds have gone through that gun without a problem. I'm using a 17 lb spring in that gun. Very accurate and reliable even with mildly reloaded ammo. Brownells.com will have what you need.

    I agree with Wolfram...the gun just needs a little tuning to digest the ammo you say causes the hangups...and its definantly worth more

    I agree with Coach. You have a 17-pound recoil spring. Simply buying a reduced power (16-lb or 15-lb) recoil spring should make the gun hum with the practice ammo. See the Wolff site above. You can get it at Brownells.com or at MidwayUSA.com (whose part # for the $7.50 16-lb'er is 931-574.) Phil E
