Don Williams- custom "revolver style" round faced trigger- note 2nd hole in slide for the custom sear lever and revised geometry- easily the best trigger on any of my HPs

Yost/Hierloom SRT custom - extensive internal reworking gives a shorter, tactile trigger reset - custom fabricated thumb safety and checkered front and back strap

FEG -$250, looks like arse, but the trigger isn't half bad and accuracy ok. I'd argue that both the thumb safety and slide stop are easier to use than any Browning option. The surface prep and finish would have been very good when it was new.

Mark II parked finish, top rib and drain hole. Trigger with parked mags horrible, ok with polished/blued mags.

contemporary FN in black polycoat...

"c" serial in high polish - impeccable metal work and finish, not good sights and miserable thumb safety...
View attachment 650850
"t" serial - beautiful finish and bluing again with the bad sights and thumb safety.
I've had around 20 assorted BHP's and not found that price / era relates to neither accuracy or trigger...but I've not had any wartime/Nazi examples...
Thankyou sir!I officially have HiPower envy. Beautiful examples. Had a mid 80’s vintage BHP that I let slip through my fingers.
Looks like a police issued mark 3 to me made in the 80s iirc. I have one and it is quite different looking then the stereotypical 72 one my grandpa taught me to shoot on. Still point the same and shoot beautifully. Mine came finished in black, I suspect, housepaint. Jeremy cerakoted it black for me.I agree with trevi- the finish should be a polished blue. The picture looks to be possibly cerakoted?
