My first one got stolen, I still miss that thing. Ring hammer, bought it from some Deputy Sheriff out in the panhandle, I think he took it away from an illegal.

One stellar handgun the HP. I wouldn’t mind having a new one in .40 someday.

In 1992 I bought a new Hungarian FEG copy of the Browning HP for about $200. Had the missing features of later HPs: ring hammer & the grips are painted red inside the magazine well. Blue steel & wood, the only materials a firearm should be made of.

Has worked wonderfully with Mec-Gar magazines & a trove of 9mm I bought back in the days for about $7.00 a box. All steel, lasts forever. I try to forget it was made in Hungary’s largest home appliance factory.
