Hi-Power clones differences.
Posted: Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:51 pm
I was cleaning my two Hi-Power clones today and noticed some differences in how they are made. One is a FEG (Hungary) and the other Argentinean. Most obvious is the finish, the FEG seems to have been a blued finish but not nearly as well as the US Browning while the Argentine seems to have been parked or phosphate. The Argentine also seems to be a bit more robust, heavier, and the slide has a flat on top. The cocking spring is much stronger on the Argentine as well. I have trouble racking the slide on the Argentine without first cocking the hammer. Parts do interchange as far as I can tell. Comments? I can post pics if needed. Thanks.
