I have one and can anyone tell me what year this is from?

you'll probably need to tell us the serial number, or most of it to get an accurate age out of it.

eventually Canebrake will see this & he is a High Power fanatic, he should be able to help you out

Letters in the ser# will indicate date of mfg. Check out www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-363629.html

Still no seperate Hi-Power thread:(

Browning has been making that pistol in a couple of different countries since 1935. There is no way we can look at a photo with no other info and tell you what year.

Made in belgium and ser# 69c24611
All the info it gives on the gun im about to try a search but if that info helps anyone specify anything else id appriciate if you still let me know any more information you may have. Thanks.

Read the site I gave you more closely. It indicates your gun was mfg in Belgium in 1969 and that the C-series, as far as quality is concerned, is perhaps only 2nd to the T-Series. The later models had the spur hammer. You have a terrific Browning and there's nothing else to know. This is my T-Series that I've had since '69. They're hard to beat.

Check out this website: http://www.hipowersandhandguns.com/ This is probably the ultimate Hi Power site.

It was started by Mr. Stephen A Camp, a world renowned Hi Power expert. Mr. Camp passed on a year or two ago and we lost a fine man.
