I met our DIL at the local GS and helped her pick out a 9mm and saw this. The price was right. Inglis HP MKII.

Ethan, I think the bluing is gone. Going by pictures of other Inglis HPs IMO the bluing was very good to begin with. I may be wrong. I'll probably just cold blue it. Right now it's slathered with Eezox for corrosion resistance.

Congrats Dave. I take it you are quite familiar with the High-Power? And is the backstrap set up for a buttstock? I always wanted one but not as much as the previous owners. Be Well, RZ.

Same question. Looks like it's "in the white."

Hah. I was right. Should look nice refinished.

RZ, this one is a MK II with no cut on the back strap for the stock. The rear sight is an after market adjustable. Yes, I am familiar with the HP. I removed the magazine safety and tore it down for a through cleaning before I slathered with with Eezox. I'll soot it to see how it does and then will get a new recoil spring. I'm thinking hard chrome or Matte Electroless Nickel Plating.
