For sale, a beautiful 9mm Belgian Browning Hi Power "Target" pistol complete with the original zipper case and owner's manual it was shipped with. This Hi Power pistol is in minty condition and could pass for being made last week! The serial number is 71C34915, which means it was manufactured in Belgium in 1971. This is the "Target" model which came from the factory with adjustable target style sights. The original Browning factory high polish blue finish rates 99% and the pistol is probably unfired since leaving the factory. The bore in this Browning is mirror bright with prominent rifling with sharp lands and grooves, and it shows no signs of corrosion or erosion. The slide is precisely fit to the frame, and it's tight and smooth with no slop when the action is worked. Neither the safety notch nor the hold open notch show any signs of use; both of them still have the factory blue finish in them with no peening/rounding that occurs from engaging them. The original factory checkered Walnut grips are also in like-new, minty condition. They are a darker brown in color than the earlier models, and have 100% of the original clear varnish remaining. The checkering is still sharp, and the grips are clean with no soiling. The front and rear grip straps also look excellent with no signs of thinning of the factory blue finish. Everything works 100% like new. This Hi Power comes with the hi-cap factory magazine, the original black zipper case embossed with the gold Browning name on the edge, and the original Owners Manual. The owners manual has a "New Gun Owner's Record" on the back of the front page that has been filled in with the serial number of this pistol and the original purchase date of 4/8/72. It also shows the original store where this gun was bought, "Shore Galleries" a gun store in the suburbs of Chicago that is still in business; and the original purchase price of $132.27!! If you have been looking to add an example of this iconic and important pistol to your collection there is no finer conditioned example available then this one. It would be impossible to upgrade from this minty Browning Hi Power!
