With the number of firearms out there that are designed to handle +P, why would you want to run +p through a classic?

The BHP is a great defensive gun that should not see a diet of +p ammo. Can't understand why people use +p target practicing anyways.

I would re-spring the entire pistol with Wolff springs. Newer springs will extend the life of your BHP.

...especially the sear spring! I have an older BHP - a T-series. It was worked over at Novak's a number of years ago when I worked there and was one of his prototypes for the FBI BHP's. I used it in competition and it was the perfect gun! One day I was shooting at the Copley Police Invitational Match, just outside Akron, OH, and had a winning run going when my gun just stopped dead with only a few targets to go. It just would not fire. Your description reminded me of that malfunction. It seems the older BHP's had a sear spring that would slip up slightly out of place and shut the gun down. The newer springs have a little finger that keeps the sear spring from doing that. It could be part of your problem, or all of it. As said above...I would re-spring the entire pistol - to factory specs on the recoil spring though, 17#'s is enough.
