    An old fart stuck in the past who can't accept the fact that Glocks are superior and is willing to shell out big $$$$$ for a 100 year old design.

    Most of what you say is true. However, the part in bold is complete, and utter bull squeeze. St. John Moses Browning would pick up that weapon with the external extractor and say:" Seriously? What The French, Toast? Who put this ugly piece of crap on my fine weapon"?

    Might I point out the Hi Power's extractor went from internal to external in the early 60's. That's why I could kick myself for not getting my grandpa's Hi Power :bang:. We just don't see the numbers of Hi Powers like 1911s ...

    I get hammer bite like no other from the Hi Power. No problem with original 1911A1's or anything, only the Hi Power bites me. I guess I've been too indoctrinated with the high grip. Too bad, because I think they are really neat.
