    Canadian Hi Power..... airsoft

    Post by Infanteer on Fri Apr 18, 2014 6:23 pm

    I realize this is not the type of thing normally shared on this forum but I think this is an acceptable exception. Picked this up today through a friend. It is a Canadian Inglis marked Hi Power. Not perfect but more than suitable for display purposes and for use in photo shoots. Not to mention it is a whole lot cheaper than a real deactivated Hi Power which I would hate to see happen anyways. Functions and disassembles just like the real thing. Slotted for the wooden stock/holster. I understand that there is another airsoft version made with the slotted grip and also with the correct tangent rear sight but I don't know if it has the Chinese characters or not. Nice to see Canadian specific items produced for a change.

    This looks the part and would be awesome in a display. These are available for sale? I have my 1944 Inglis but it doesn't see much light outside the safe.

    "I have my 1944 Inglis but it doesn't see much light outside the safe." This is precisely why I was happy to pick up this one... I can leave it out on display. I would love to own an original someday if I find a decent example for the right price.

    Are these legal? Not sure but I don't think you can bring replica pistols into the country. Seems silly as its okay to own a real deactivated one. Cheers Brian

    Brian, if I understand Steve correctly this is an airsoft pistol. These are legal as they shoot a little 177 plastic BB.

    I for one think this is a heck of an idea for display purposes.

    Not sure if I understand your point... air soft are widely available throughout the country and are not considered replicas because they fire projectiles with enough energy to cause bodily harm. That being said, I don't intend to ever shoot this thing. For me it's purely a prop/display piece. My buddy tells me there is a decent air soft Sterling SMG as well.... might have to look into one of those as well.

    My mistake, missed the airsoft part. Definitely a nice piece for display. Cheers Brian

    This is the other version available, this one doesn't have Chinese markings. The shoulder stock is real (stamped and dated) but the pistol is an airsoft "toy". The stock did not fit the slot in the grip and although I paid more for the pistol then I did for the stock, the pistol was modified. Something to do with preserving history. :)

    Nice.... displays the stock well and there is no need to worry about safe storage regulations. You made the right choice about modifying the gun and not the stock.
