I am unable to imagine any humor which would cause me to perpetrate such a thing.

I no longer want my autographed cudgel.

Pervert.

It may taste like Purple, but it smells like Cerise, and looks like Grape Frost.









Obscure, yes ?

It's really a deep burgundy, same as the background. But the image came out red. I tried adjusting the hue and saturation but I'm not experienced with that level of photoshop. (gimp).

It's the same shade as these.

It is for my daughter. Traded a Kobra sight for this Mk II - needed refinishing anyway.

Eventually I'll get a .22 upper for a Glock, but need another frame. She went "practicing" with her Glock. Burned through 500 rounds in an afternoon. I can't afford it anymore. Gotta get her plinking with cheaper ammo.

Color is subjective ( eye of the beholder ) although well executed ( grip screws also ) . The only thing about these pistols is the magazine retention , I have a hard time manipulating them , wondering if there was / is an aftermarket mechanisim . My daughter loves shooting the on I have .

Looks like "you done good" GP! As a gunsmith and a parent! :beer:

The Mk III and the MkII/45 both use American (non European) style mag catches. But I don't like the feel of the Mk II/45. I really like the luger type grip for target shooting. The other may be better for combat shooting, but at that point I should just get the (Advantage Arms?) .22 Upper for the Glock.

I see these (have 3 now, two like this and one of the slab-side target models) as small game hunting and teaching sight alignment, sight picture, and trigger control, before moving onto regular defensive pistol shooting.

The Hi-Power is gorgeous. Glocks can't be gorgeous no matter WHAT color they are.
