Nice example of a 40 S&W Hi Power, serial# indicates a '96 build. 1 mousetrap mag and 4 Mec-Gar Italian mags. Mag safety removed by previous owner. Comes with nice Hogue wooden grip panels, look like rosewood, no originals. Haven't shot it much. I got it to go w/my 9mm Hi Power but it's the only 40 I have and never shoot that caliber anymore. I've put 100 rnds through it, it's been shot but appears to have been lightly. Springs are strong, shoots great. Finish is very nice w/only a couple minor flaws near the barrel and hammer. Some say the Hi Power is the perfect platform for the 40 S&W. It's definitely one of the more pleasant 40's I've shot.

If it were my 9mm, I'd probably be asking more, It's a sweet practical w/low round count.

This one's just a heavy 9, like I mentioned earlier, grab a 9mm barrel and have a switch hitter. Can't go the other way w/out worrying about frame stress.

Is it really just as simple as a barrel swap? I thought there was more involved in it, but I know very little about Hi-Powers.

Correct, 10+1

Yes, it is that easy. I haven't checked for a while but Bar-Sto sells 3 lug 9mm barrels and yes, a 9mm spring and mags are needed.

Some people feel the 9mm+P is too much for a 9mm Hi power frame so this conversion makes it a no brainer.
