    I generally buy 10 -15 guns per year and have not been this excited about one in a long time

    Aim has always exceeded my expectations so hopefully you will be more than pleased with yours. Let us know of course we like gun porn and range reports.

    I too succumbed to the impulse to buy one of these "shooters".

    The Hi Power is a single action pistol with excellent pointability, affectionately called The King of The Nines.

    "I'm with you fellers". Bought a surplus Israeli FN HP35 about 6 months ago for a range shooter. It's also well used but still is a sweet shooter. Although it was a design collaboration and John Moses Browning didn't live to see it finished, it was his last handgun design - as much of an icon to the rest of the world as his 1911 is to us Americans. No 9mm collection is complete without one. And I like the "retired" service firearms, too. They wear their service scars well.

    I think you did very well, the Mark III has better sights and feed ramp than older Hi Powers so it should be a good shooter. The price is good and it's worth the extra $10 to get the best of five inspected.

    I got an imported surplus Mark III a few months back that's been a great shooter. Here's a link to the thread so you can see pictures of what you can expect from one of these surplus guns.

    Anyone who has the best prices on spare magazines??
    I generally try to avoid ProMags.

    Shipping is $6.50, is that per mag or $6.50 for a box of mags.



    For $16.49, I would prefer to put that towards a MecGar.

    Pretty sure shipping would be combined and they would PROBABLY work OK.
    BUT MecGars have never let me down and I found 2 for $59.00 shipped.

    I also prefer Mec-Gar, never had any problem with five Hi Power 15 rounders I bought about 7 years ago. I also use Mec-Gar in a S&W 5906, P08 and LC9s. They are machined better than many other magazines and just work. No wonder so many gun manufacturers supply Mec-Gar made "factory" magazines.

    Picked up my Gun today and the barrel is threaded at the muzzle on the inside of the barrel and there is what I would guess is a blank adaptor screwed inside the barrel. The scary part is I dropped a dummy round in the chamber and it seemed to go all the way in!!! I didn't close the slide as I didn't want to complicate the situation.

    That is interesting in a very scary way.
    I had never heard of a blank adapter for a 9mm pistol. Other than maybe stoping fragments I can see no purpose since it's a recoil action it wouldn't cycle anyway. Intresting to see what you find out.
    suck to have to replace the barrel first thing

    are you sure the bore is c onstricted perhaps it is just back bored and threaded for a suppressor?

    I'd give aim a call at any rate one to warn them that some may have a blocked bore and two see if they might send you a barrel for it free since that one is boogered. I'would hate to give up that barrel though until I figured out what it's purpose was. I took a quick look around and no one else has mentioned any such thing. You may have gotten some kind of rarity there.

    There is definitely something in there and it would go KABOOM if fired as is!!
    Could it be a simunition adapter?????
    Whatever it looks like it could be unscrewed with an allen wrench.

    Have you taken the barrel out to see if it has any kind of markings? I'm totally at a loss on it I can't find anything about such a thing on line either. Sure as hell was dangerous though could have been really bad please do call aim and tell em to check their others before shipping just in case some happy fella runs right to a range and loads up without doing his proper safety checks. hate to have a chance to save a life or limb and miss the opportunity. If you ever figuret his out please let us know I"m dying for closure now :)
