High power refinished
 
I have had this surplus parts gun for awhile and never really liked the finish on it
so i had Mark at ARS (aka gunplumber) refinish it for me, i had it done in Metcol black on the slide and controls and Metcol Gray on the frame, i really like how it turned out!

That is REALLY sweet :bow:

Now it just needs some Spegel wood grips :)

Not only are the Spegels great looking, they make the HP feel even better in your hands - they get rid of the boxy edges.

Brownell's used to sell thin Micarta grips for the P35 about 15 years ago. I like how they slimmed down the grip.

Nice looking Hi-Power.

Very nicely finished! Picked up a set of rose colored wood grips from VZ grips for my HP, slimmed down the grip with a classic look. Cheers!

Navidrex. I think I still have some in my BHP bin.

CZ Custom has what looks like a nice set of wood, although I've never handled any.

Craig Spegels stuff is top notch, although you have a bit of a wait after ordering.

That looks great! New life into an old pistol.

Mark how close is that gray to the gray used on Belgian M1/M2 rifles?

Too dark - I mix it to match Manganese Phosphate Parkerizing

I do have two shades of blue-gray I've been playing with for the Vz 58 and for the old SACO import HKs, but it isn't quite right. I also have a gull gray that's too light. Not really enough demand to pursue at this time.

Damn nice!
Shit, those two fudlly Israeli's need to get sent off to Mark.:facepalm:
Thanks for the reminder.:wink:
