    Bar-Sto makes a 3 lug 9mm barrel (.40's have 3 lugs, 9's have 2) if you are interest in setting it up for both calibers.

    Watch for some more Israeli surplus. I picked one up several years ago that was an FN commercial model they had bought for their plainclothes cops.

    It's mind boggling to see how many pistol variations have been morphed from John Moses Browning's 1911 & Hi Power design.

    Prices for rusty Hi Powers were averaging $700 when I nearly pulled the trigger on a new Charles Daly Hi Power for $350. I thought the price was suspiciously low and passed on the deal. Should've bought a baker's dozen.

    Here's an interesting thread to ponder.

    I also have an Argie FM, but mine is an original with the narrow slide front, like the Belgian guns, in contrast to Tracker 627's.
    According to the excellent link provided by Lomax, Tracker627's pistol is most likely an FM 90. Still a good pistol, just a bit different.

    BTW, thanks Lomax for posting the link!

    I have a Daly Hi Power and it's a really good gun.
    Reliable and accurate.
    Most parts interchangeable with standard Hi=Powers.
    It's a Magnum Research build.

And there are enough of them out there which go "bang" every time you pull the trigger, so reliability is not a consideration. Personal choice? Yeah, but why take the chance of losing a gun of that price? Makes on shoot better? No more so that a set of Talyor Made clubs would make me a better golfer than the Northwesterns I have now.
    I tend to mostly agree but it's like the motorcycle helmet argument "if you have a $2 head, get a $2 helmet". Although there's not necessarily any correlation between price and quality in anything, better to risk losing an expensive gun than your life. Same goes for ammo.
    Ammo will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you through times of no ammo.

    MY TAKE--EXACTLY!!
    IF a weapon saves my life or loved one life I could care less about the cost!
    it has served its purpose and the reason that I would have such a weapon is for that purpose!
    and no doubt that I would have total faith in its function, that's why I would pay more for it, a sense of function should I need to use it.

    To an extent, I agree. However, as I stated, there are a lot of mid to somewhat low priced guns which are very, very reliable. Such as my Taurus PT145, or Springfield XD-S or Springfield XD mod 2. Any gun upon which one depends should be fired enough to prove reliability. A $2000 unreliable gun becomes a great hammer or onetime airborne projectile regardless of price. The worst time to reflect on how proud you are of paying $2000 for a gun is when it's needed and doesn't perform. The same can be said for motorcycle helmets.

    very true!
    as is the worst time to find out that your value priced weapon does not function at that time as well.
    Price should never be a driver of choice when it comes to safety in my opinion.
    Now IF you find comfort carrying a Raven 25 auto that fine as its you and possibly your loved ones life that's at hand, not me or mine.
    I am not saying that one needs a 2 K weapon but overall unless its for bling I will trust a mult hundred/ lower thousand dollar gun as to function over a lesser priced one , typically quality and quality control are there with the middle road to higher priced weapons.
    and should/if a weapon is an only weapon of an owner then certainly parts availability. rapid repair and customer service as well as quality control over the repair is extremely important.
