With the CH prefix to the serial number I see that the Inglis in the photo was made for the Nationalist Chinese. If the wooden shoulder stock is original to the pistol then that is indeed a rarity. From what I have read when these HP's were issued to the Chinese troops the stock was usually burned for firewood.

Some years ago I came across an Inglis Mark I as pictured above complete with the matching number wooden stock/holster. The dealer wanted $1200 for it and I took a pass on it. Big mistake on my part.....

And so it goes.

Stock way too pretty, some shlep likely refinished it. Hate it when I do stuff like that.

The stock is quite nice but unnumbered. There are no signs that it has been refinished.

Finding a true original Inglis stock is the hard part. Only about 30K stocks were made in 1944-45. Most went to China where only a fraction survived for a return journey.

Yep, looks just like mine. I got it from my uncle many moons ago who had it for years. He never fired it. The stock, like many others, just sits in the safe even upon the few times the Inglis goes to the range. Would not want to scratch it up.

Run into them way more often than in past. When got mine they were super rare then Canadian government surplussed a large number onto the U.S. market which killed the value of an average or poor condition Inglis. When discovered it was no longer rare turned mine into a shooter but don't carry or abuse. If ever decide don't need your stock, I need a gun case for mine. Would refuse to call it a stock in public if owned both.

If had one wish might be squandered on one of the aluminum frame Inglis models they did for evaluation and potential sale to other countries. Been told that they are scheduled to,send 19,000 Inglis pistols to the smelter in 2017. Darn shame they can't be sensible and dump them on the U.S. market, make a few bucks selling, save a few bucks not paying for destruction and sure a few nice ones would be found in that many units.

If not for the Hi Power may have never owned a 9mm pistol. Purchased a pristine Belgian then tripped across an elderly guy liquidating his collection and willing to deal if purchased all. Next thing I knew had some gaps in a collection and voila, had a pile of 9mm pistols. Always thought 9mm was a submachine gun round. Like it in my MAC 10's though my MAC 11's in 380 are favorites due to virtually no recoil. Now have a couple of SIG 9mm's because needed a suppressor host wife could handle. That said, if trip across a deal on a nice Hi Power tomorrow will bring it home.
