Inglis Mk I* Hi Power Rig

Article about: The hanger on Ade's stock is an original. There are many of these over here, as one might expect..........

    Default Inglis Mk I* Hi Power Rig

    I look for many years for an Inglis Hi Power that wasn't refinished. I finally found one at The Phoenix, AZ SAR Show. I wish it still had the decal on the grip but at least I have one now.

    Great pistol. Nice to see it with the shoulder stock/holster as well !
    The tangent sight type are my favorite. This version was also
    made for the Chinese Government..........

    Very nice example of Inglis HP...The maple-leaf water-decal usualy was vanishing or chipped off after some handling...
    I always though wanted to ask this : What's this 'cut' behind the step on the slide ?
    Best regards, Thanos.

    On the right side of the slide in front of the ejection port is a circular recess.
    When you lock the slide in the rear position for take-down/disassembly,
    this recess will line up with the slide release lever post. You can see
    this 'button' end of the lever between the serial numbers.

    When the 'button' is pressed, the lever sticks out of the left side of the
    pistol, and when it is removed - with care as the slide is under
    pressure - the slide can then be slid off the frame.........
    Regards,

    Thanks to all who so kindly replied and to Steve who solved the mystery of the notch. Like Thanos I also wondered what it was for.

    Sam, I have just had a closer look at the serial number on your pistol, and I am
    100% positive that it is indeed a Chinese contract piece. I've also read that
    many of these were issued to Canadian and British troops.

    It is a ' Mk 1* ' model, which went through minor modifications to improve
    the weapon. These guns do not have Chinese characters on the right
    side of the slide, seen on earlier ' Mk 1 ' pistols.

    As well, your shoulder stock was made by S.A. LTD. which is
    'Small Arms Limited' in Long Branch, Ontario.
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Steve,
    Thanks again for the info on the Mk I*. I did not know it was Chinese contract. I looked in the Collector Grade Publication on Hi Powers and thought it was a Canadian contract Hi Power. I guess I should pay more attention to these things but I have to many to research them all and little time to do it. I'll have to read the book again and update my notes.

    The 'CH' in the serial number gave it away !

    Lol - That is the same book I have and got the info from !
    It was written by R. Blake Stevens.

    Having a deep love affair with the Browning
    Hi-Power helps too.........!

    Steve,
    One would think that being a former Physics teacher I would do my research more carefully. Must be a result of "Agent Orange" as they said in the Gene Hackman movie about rescuing the POW's left behind in Viet Nam. I could think of a lot more silly excuses but in reality I think I am just getting to old. LOL.
    Thanks again for your setting me straight.
    Regards,
    Sam

    Lol, one would think that someone so enamoured with the Browning Hi-Power
    as myself, would have purchased a gorgeous dead mint Inglis pistol
    when I had the chance 20 years ago - for $500.

    All finish, as well as the decal intact.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.
