    Default Any Hi Power experts here?

    I'm having an issue with a replacement barrel in a 1987 Hi Power Mk II. The new barrel appears identical in every way with the original, but when putting the side back on I can't get it to move back to the takedown notch.

    Hope one comes along. I have a very early Hi Power I'm trying to identify and sort out.

    Sounds like an issue related to the recoil spring guide not seating.

    Don't know about Hi Powers, but with my Sigs barrel has almost always needed fitting. A slight amount of filling is usually all it has taken.

    I resolved it with a slight easing of the bottom of the feed ramp.
