I found this forum a while back and was just accepted. I bought this 9mm Hi Power new about 12 years ago, if I remember correctly. It was my first 9mm handgun. I changed out all the internals with Cylinder & Slide parts. as well as the hammer and safeties. The sights were also changer to tritium night sights. The grips came from Brownells. It is one of my favorite carry weapons and I love that it will fit most of my leather holsters designed for a 1911.
