The latest addition to the Recover Tactical product line is the HPC grip and rail system designed for FN/Browning Hi Power pistols. This product replaces the original Hi Power grips, extends the dust cover portion of the frame, adds a 1913 Picatinny rail section as well as provides a modern grip texture.
Besides the original grip screws, the two sides of the HPC grip and rail system are also attached to each other via three set screws: two on the rail and one at the front bottom portion of the trigger guard.
This product is made of glass-reinforced polymer. It will be available in four color options: black, OD green, FDE and grey. The overall weight is a little over 2 oz (60 grams).
This is also a drop in accessory. It doesn’t require any permanent changes to the weapon and can be installed within minutes without a need to have any special skills or tools. The Recover tactical HPC grip system is compatible with Browning and FN made Hi Power pistols only (it won’t work with FEG pistols). The thickness of the Recover Tactical grip is equal to that of the original factory grips. Hi Power pistol equipped with this grip system will fit in Blackhawk Omnivore holsters. The company claims that the rail of this accessory reliably holds the zero when a laser is mounted to it.
I had a chance to play with this product at Recover Tactical’s booth at SHOT Show 2019. My initial impression – it is quite comfortable. If you don’t mind modding your Hi Power, then HPC should be a good accessory for you.
Currently, the Recover Tactical HPC grip and rail system is available for preorder at an MSRP of $49.95. The shipping is estimated to start in April 2019. The company offers a lifetime warranty for this product.
