    Default Shoulder stock for the slotted Hi Power ?

    Anybody know where I could get a shoulder stock for the slotted Belgian Hi Power ? I am looking for the board type with the leather holster on the side not the Englis type. Original or repo is ok. Thanks for any info.

    Just an afterthought here-unless you go the NFA route, it is only legal to put a shoulder stock on a pre-WWII FN Hi-Power. I mention this as FN made a run of "collector" run of Hi-Powers with tangent sights and a slot for the stock.

    Not sure if even that is true under all circumstances {for example, with a repro stock, I don't think it is legal without Registering it first}.

    As stated before,

    Better check with ATF!!!

    The stock is not for attachment. Only for display with the gun. Thanks for the thoughts on this though.

    Yes, with a repro stock you are at risk. The trouble is that some repro are soooooooo good they are for all intents identical to the originals. Nevertheless it always wise to visit the ATF website and peruse the C&R NFA exemption list. Having said that, if you had a pistol/stock combination that was NOT on the aforementioned exemption list, you would still be in violation of the NFA even if they were not attached but were merely next to each other in a display. I wouldn't risk it.

    Not sure what type it is, but Sportsmansguide are selling repro stocks for pretty cheap.

    I am not getting a shoulder stock for my Browning FN Hi Power. I am not even thinking or writing about it. I am totally uninterested in getting a shoulder stock. I have no need for one. It is the farthest thing from my mind. I am the last person on earth to get a shoulder stock for my Hi Power. I am totally satisfied to see the pictures and just dream about it. It is only a dream. It isn't for real.............

    Talking Official ATF Regs on Inglis Browning Shoulder Stock

    SECTION III: Weapons Removed From The NFA As Collector's Items And Classified As Curios Or Relics Under The GCA
    The Bureau has determined that by reason of the date of their manufacture, value, design and other characteristics, the following firearms are primarily collector's items and are not likely to be used as weapons and, therefore, are excluded from the provisions of the National Firearms Act.

    Further, the Bureau has determined that such firearms are also curios or relics as defined in 27 CFR 178.11. Thus, licensed collectors may acquire, hold or dispose to them as curios or relics subject to the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR Part 178. They are still "firearms" as defined in 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44.

    Interesting, that they lumped the PIAT in with that. You couldn't put a shoulder stock on one.:D
