Thats great news.

Just checked website and it says "in stock" for both the silver and black models..interesting that they show the hop-up as "fixed", but I dont care at this point.

I immediately put in an order for mine when I saw it.

I wanted to get three, but I will exercise restraint. For now.

If you can, let us know when they verify processing and shipment. I've not had overly wonderful luck with overseas purchases over the last 2 months. Although I found a wonderful site in England that shipped some gear to me super quick and a Canadian firm that also came through for me.

Airsoft World Ltd in England was just terrific. I had ordered 2 AAP-01's from a supplier in the USA. However, they didnt have any of the up-grades. Just by chance I found the Airsoft World site and they seemed to have a "boat load" of what I was looking for. I placed the order and it was delivered overseas, in I believe, less than 10 days and arrived in before the pistols! I just checked there site a moment ago and they have some new goodies for these pistols that I might have to consider.

I'll have get back to you on the Canadian outfit.

Small point of order Airsoft World is in Scotland you'll upset them if you say they are English.

Switched the grips on my real FN HP to a lovely pair of wood ones, so the WE will get my stock black plastic grips and provided they haven't changed too much, the C&S modified extended slide stop I have mounted on my first version WE HP

It's going to look sweet. I'm on hold with ordering mine as I have not gotten over my present "love affair" with the Action Army AAP-01 and just ordered more stuff for them.

Keep us up to date with how its working out for you.

I ordered one of the standard black ones from KY during the brief period they were in stock, about two days ago. So hopefully i should have it reasonably soon, and hopefully it isnt garbage.

I havent gotten any shipping notification email yet. Im hoping they didnt screw me like they did when the WE thompson came out. I didnt get mine until nearly two months later and I could have had it from any other retailer faster in that time.

Thats great news. Have you thought about getting the chromed version for your next one? I was always a big fan of the 2 toned Hi-Power look. I'd also like to know if thats a "brushed" or gloss chrome finish and you could help me out with that. I prefer brushed (lol).

I am getting anxious about getting mine now.

Yeah, i've got a project in mind for the nickle version, though that will be determined when I can figure out what parts from the old model will work on the new.

This is Maria, Benny's unique 9mm from Fallout New Vegas.

Seems like both had bbu problems, improperly installed maybe? Slides tend to jam like that when the loading arm breaks off the nozzle. And the mag not locking in seems like it was hitting the bbu. Just my thoughts though.

This is just so disappointing. I'm getting kind of "P.O'd" about this now. I mean, I'm hitting retirement age and I could die soon without ever getting one of the few pistols I've been waiting decades for to ever appear (lol-kind of).

No working proper Hi-Power, no Welrod, no HK P7M13, no Grizzly, no Bren Ten, no Colt Combat Commander w/Wilson style sights, grip safety etc..  and no all metal Man From U.N.C.L.E. P-38 (that doesnt cost a freaking fortune). Was this too much to hope for? Too much to ask? Jeez

Thank the Lord for the AAP-01 I guess, as I cradle one of my babies in my arms and a single tear runs down my face. The sun will rise tomorrow and it will be OK.
