This is a fixed sight Inglis, serial number 6T2860. It has only only two blemishes. The first is that a part of the decal is missing. The second is the spot on the trigger guard where the finish is worn off. Hard to figure why the spot is there, considering that the rest of the pistol is 99.99%

I would suggest that your rub{?} mark is from storage within a shipping crate.

Sweet condition Inglis. I have a real soft spot for these pistols. Sadly I am not able to afford in minty condition. Still, I can enjoy looking at others!

I reviewed Clive Law's book (Inglis Diamond) on the Hi-Power. He had included many factory photos. The only one I found was showing the Inglis being packed into a heavy cardboard box for shipping. This type of packing would not have caused the mark on the trigger guard.

However, the cardboard box did not look strong enough for rough handling. Athough it could be suffucient for deliver y the pistols from the factory to the army receiving point in the same city, I would venture to say that they were repackaged for further shipment, probably into wood crates.

A good bounce. in one of those, could very easily cause such a mark.
