    Default New H.P. rig

    I added a new H.P. rig to my collection. I think the time frame would be around 1942...not positive. The price was 1400 and considered it a good deal as far as H.P. are concerned. The condition appears to be very good. In my experiences, it's hard to find a complete rig. I really like the markings on the one magazine. The other one is late war. (High Powers, to me, are right up there with Lugers and 1911s. They're just a cut above the rest!....Looks, mag. capacity, dependable in most conditions; they have it all)
    Thanks for looking,
    Joe

    Joe,
    You can't get much better than that: pistol (in great condition), nice holster and two correct mags!
    Based on Vanderlinden's book my guess would be mid-1942.
    I really love the tangent sight, but I still have to find one down here.
    Congratulations!

    Beautiful rig!
    I'd consider that a good deal as well, all things considered.

    BHP is considered being 2nd generation classic pistol. Its position is in line with 1911, P38, etc.. Luger was 1st gen. Very different. BHP's influence is on post WWII pistols. 3rd gen classic is probably Glock, affecting past 30 years. Each generation has its own representatives.
