Hello,

No, I couldn't find any - so it looks like he's let the site expire.

I'll leave the thread up for awhile thou in case he renews the site.

FWIW: You're really better off sticking with Genuine FN-Browning Magazines and when/if you want 20-Shot HP Magazines then buy 20-Rd Mec-Gar Magazines.

NOTE:

I agree with Mr. Reed that MecGar made (Factory made, Pachmayr and MecGar branded) are the only way to go for the Hi Power.
Genuine MecGar Hi Power magazines can had for about $10 LESS that MecGar's retail prices by going to:

Greg Cote, LLC

I've used Greg Cote for years and HIGHLY RECOMMEND him.

Bob,

This wonderful and informative site closed early spring time frame. I was disappointed due to the wonderful information and pictures it had. A great reference for BHP owners. I hope it comes back in the future.

What we need to find is a computer geek who can dig out all the BHP information from now-defunct websites that is archived somewhere in ether space and format it into an easy to use reference for us. There has been a wealth of information shared and posted over the years. It's finding it and making turning it into a user friendly format that is a problem.

Hello Tom, I get all my 20-Rounders from Greg Cote as well, and like you said, he has the best prices.

PJK9HP, here's an excellent magazine review that Wags did FN Contract Magazine comparison

Hi Bob,

Good day to you. Thank you for the link. Yes, I think I saw that one but my brain didn't let me remind of such. My bad. Reason why I was searching for information on magazine because I wanted to find out if there are standard value for magazine spring tension. At the back of my mind, there's this post here in H&A forum: How many rounds to function test a new magazine?
that might connect my thoughts on the reliability of magazines. I also checked other forums and magazine manufacturers/suppliers sites searching for such value and what I read are all about "extra power" magazines, magazines with full rounds stored for more-than-50years-or-so still functions well, using the magazine 500 or more will weaken the spring, Hooke's Law and etc. I even checked on the two volumes of The Colt .45 Automatic Shop Manual by J. Kuhnhausen as there might be comparison of a 1911 single-stack to Hipower double-stack magazine but didn't find any (or maybe I have just missed it).

Any thoughts?

Thanks and regards....
