It saved me the trouble of having to remove them myself!
After having so much fun with my new PPK/S I decided to get another automatic in a caliber other than .45. I decided on Browning's last handgun design, the Hi-Power. Now my only complaint about my Walther is that it's so pretty and nicely blued it's pretty much a safe queen that I don't want to handle more than to shoot it every now and again. So when looking for a Hi-Power I had an eye toward getting a "beater". I really felt like I was taking a chance when I bought a refinished FEG clone off Gunbroker for $250 shipped(the least I've ever paid for any handgun). Turns out I got an exceptionally solid gun that runs like a dream.
It was great right out of the box but I tinker so I installed a reduced power hammer spring(took 4 hands but it got done), polished and lubed the internals, polished the outside of the chamber on the barrel to improve its looks, refinished the grips and painted the dots on the sights. Managed to get the trigger down to 5lbs and didn't have to do any work on the sear/hammer engagement. There's no creep or over-travel, just a nice crisp break. I would have had to remove the magazine disconnect as well(the bane of all Hi-Power triggers everywhere), but as my thread title implies it wasn't in the gun when I got it.
Overall I couldn't be happier. I got a solid version of a classic design at a great price. If anyone else is in the market for an inexpensive beater check out this seller on Gunbroker. He must have bought a boatload of used guns from Israel or something. He's sold a ton of guns since I started looking at his stuff. I have watched the seller's stock dwindle though. The last time I looked he had 16 refinished FEG's left total and only one with the nicer 3-dot sights at the same price I paid($230+shipping) so don't dawdle if you think you want one. He's got page after page of FN Hi-Powers too, but they haven't been refinished. Link to seller's semi-auto handguns sorted by price
Dead on at 15yds with 115gr FMJ. I've got some Magnus 122gr FPBB bullets on the way. When they get here I'm gonna load up a bunch and shoot this cheap gun unmerciful like.
