I picked up a new Hi-Power today,matte finish in .40 S&W.
Thought I would never find another one of these new but got
lucky and found the last one the dealer had.
My first matte finish model,I'm starting to like it.

Just a quick range report.
Fired a 100 round box of WWB FMJ's today, functioning was flawless
at both rapid fire (empty the clip as fast as I can to try to cause a jam)
and slow fire for accuracy.
These .40 Hi-Powers are with out a doubt the most accurate out of the
box handguns I have ever fired.

just what type of accuracy did you get? I just bought one last month but haven't found the time to shoot it.

Sure,
The comparison was made from the pistol above and this one below.Both
FN .40's one polished the other matte.

The guns were fired from a bench rest,slow fire 10 shots each at a 1 in.
diameter orange dot sticky target on white copy paper set at 20 yards.
The polished HP with Blazer brass FMJ's will average sub 1 1/4 in. groups
overall and WWB FMJ's 1 1/2 in.
The matte will average 1 in. groups overall with WWB FMJ's and 1 1/4 in.
with the Blazers.
Both pistols sent their groups centered and 1 in. high on target with a
6 o'clock hold on the orange dot.
