Look up Browning hi-power as it is a clone of one. It should field strip the same.

Parabellum is a term describing the cartridge. 9mm Parabellum is (IIRC) standard 9mm, also known as 9mm Luger... Your pistol is a High Power clone and I would bet tears down the same way.

Ummm.... errr....exactly what he said...

Just a tid bit "Parabellum" is latin for "for war" as it was originally a military cartridge.

It should field strip like a 1911.

Rack slide back and find the sweet spot to push the take down pin out.

The slide will come off and you remove the barrel, guide rod and spring out the back.

Remember how the guide rod is positioned. Put it in upside down and it will lock up on you!

This should help, no comment on the instructor but he does cover the important items.


PS, The word Parabellum is a noun coined by German arms maker Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken and is derived from the Latin saying si vis pacem, para bellum, meaning If you wish for peace, prepare for war.

Google Browning Hi-Power, NATO Browning, and P-35

You'll have your pick of the litter...
