In 1989, I bought my first centerfire pistol; a Browning Hi-Power Mark III-S for $389 at a gun shop in Alexandria, VA. I had a "tune-up" done to it by Northern Virginia Gun Works not long after purchase. I still have this gun and it is one which I will never sell from my collection. Certainly one of the best examples of its kind.
I bought another one just like it (same model) in the 90's in .40S&W but I did sell that one. Wish I had kept it.
