difference in GP internals compared to standard HP

Did the GP have a shorter trigger reset and trigger travel? Can anyone tell me if the GP internals will fit in the standard HP?

Hello. Yes, most of the parts will interchange.

The FN-Browning Competition Model HP uses a differnt hammer. The Competition HP hammer has a differnt interface than a standard HP hammer. The Comp Model retains the regular sear, but it's modified hammer has a "raised area" in front of the full cock notch, that holds the sear nose slightly higher, giveing less sear to hook engagement. In other words, the hammer hook only engages about half of the sear's nose or searing surface. This hammer could be used in a regular HP as well.

The Competition Model also uses a different sear lever, it's pivot point has been moved further towards the rear. You'll notice that the sear lever's Roll Pin Hole in the side of the slide on a Competition Model is further back than what it is on regular HP's. Relocating the pivot point on the Competition Model sear lever doesn't change the reset or take up, it only gives the advantage of extra-leverage, which in turn, makes for a lighter trigger pull.

The Competition Model uses a frame mounted magazine disconnect, but you could use a Competition's trigger in a regular HP.
