Default Tisas Regent High Power stainless steel

Hi all,

I picked up a stainless steel one on Gunbroker about four weeks ago. Out of the box she was very tight and VERY well made.

I cleaned and lubed her and off to the range.

She ate all of my FMJ's of course and then my Hornady defense rounds without one hic-up. I ordered a set of OEM black plastic grips with the thumb grooves from Midwest Gun Works. When I put them on they fit perfectly.

I did bob the hammer to get rid of the hammer bite.

Don't hesitate to buy one. It is an exact copy of the Browning high power. I watched a couple of video's on the internet and the parts are completely interchangeable.

I have had several High Powers over the years and they got traded for this or that. I feel pretty dumb now, but they never made a stainless steel one so, I am super happy anyway.

I haven't replaced the thumb safety yet and in fact after practicing with an empty gun for the last three weeks have become completely proficient at clicking it off and back on. I has loosened up considerably after a lot of practice to where it has a nice "snick" to it. It just took some getting used to it. I will probably order an extended one from Cylinder and Slide sometime soon though.

I have fallen in love with it and have been carrying it off duty since I first shot her and qualified with it three weeks ago. She is super accurate.

So, yes go out buy one and enjoy it. I give it 5 stars across the board. I am a military firearms instructor and the firearms instructor for my Sheriff's Office with over 23 years of service, so I have been around the block, bought and sold too many firearms since I was 18. This is a must gun to own and this particular High Power from Tisas is fantastic.

The Tisas's get really good reviews from the BHP guys on the Colt forum too. The Brownings HP's are getting way crazy expensive now.

A few years ago I owned a 1911 Tisas 45acp. Shot well and never had a problem with it. I did add a full length guide rod though. Traded it somewhere down the line. Very good guns for the price. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. The High Power sounds interesting.

The Tisas Hi-Power clones get good reviews are reported to be extremely close to genuine Browning Hi-Powers in terms of dimensions. BH Spring Solutions performed an in-depth review of the stainless version and they also have a 6000 round update with warnings about the firing pin retainer and extractor breaking.

I have been interested in a Tisas Hi-Power since I read that they were being imported. Nice to read a first hand account since there are some negative comments out on the net. Have yet to see one in a shop in PA.

If I saw one in a shop and could fondle it first I’d consider one.
What do these sell for? Ballpark.
