Back around 1990, just before the 10 round magazine limitation went into effect, I purchased a Hi-Power and several extra magazines. At the time I saw absolutely no need nor particular desire to own the pistol. So why? Because big momma didn't want me to have one, and besides it was the only double stack pistol the even came close to fitting my hand.
The only issue has been the damn magazine disconnect. It creates unnecessary trigger travel and a gritty feel. I corrected mine by removing the shoe and blocking the trigger back. So my Hi-Power has a shorter, crisper trigger with little take up.
As stated in an earlier post, the Hi-Power is my second favorite auto-pistol.
