So, I just got my aluminum framed FN Hi Power back from Chuck today, and wanted to show some of the updates. In the pictures I've shown before, the slide was blue, and the frame bare Al.

Now, we've got the frame Cerakoted in stainless-aluminum lookalike color. The pistol went back for a little issue that developed with the trigger, and while Chuck had it, I guess I finally pestered him enough about the slide stop that he did something about it.
--One of the things that has bugged me about the controls on the Hi Power--Thumb safety and slide stop--is that, in stock form, they are designed to be moved via lateral pressure. They move up and down, by depend on sideways pressure to effect the up and down movement. Not the most dependable in what could be a high stress situation.
There's a several aftermarket/custom thumb safeties which remedy the thumb safety issue, but other than the SS with the SFS system or the Pachmayr, the slide stop hasn't been addressed. Also, both with the HP and the 1911, factory slide stops are textured to be used as a slide release, but the majority of the time on full builds with 1911's you see the SS texturing on the lower side of the lever, for use predominately as a stop, not a release.
Anyway, Chuck addressed the slide stop on this one, and put just enough meat on it to get a good purchase with the thumb, but yet kept it looking svelte enough to look right at home on the Hi Power.

Front strap is textured in Chuck's Mesh Cut pattern. Thumb safety is the Warner custom variety. Trigger is a Garthwaite straight trigger, which activates a Warner TR sear and Optimized hammer. Sights are Warner, U notch in rear, gold bead in front.

Put a couple of quick mags through it this evening, and I'm spoiled all over again. Now for the pics:
