View Full Version : Heavy trigger on Hi-Power

September 2, 1999, 08:10 AM
A friend of mine just got a Belgian Hi-Power. Estimate the gun to be about 25 years old. Anyway, the trigger pull is quite heavy. I'd guess somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 pounds. Can you reccoment a pistolsmith in the Houston area for slicking up the trigger? Or is there something a mechanically inclined tinkerer can do to help the trigger pull?

Cylinder and Slide (sorry, I don't have their web site) out of Freemont NB is a primo Hi Power man. He has some good after market parts that will help slick up the H/P's trigger pull. The porblem with his replacement trigger (if you consider it a problem) it that it removes the magazine safety.

I'll be replacing the mag disconnect on my BHP if I get a carry permit here in Orange County, CA and want to include it as one of my carry guns. The 3 weapons listed on your permit have to be inspected. I heard that one semi auot got rejected because the trigger pull was < 4 pounds. I would imagine that they check to make sure that the later models of BHP's, etc don't fire with the mag removed. Jim

You can improve the trigger pull on the HP by simply polishing the point on the magazine where the mag safety rubs it, and polishing the mag safety itself. The latter can be done with crocus cloth in the mag well without even removing the trigger. Lube with a little good gun grease.
