The 20 Benefits of the FAST SAFETY (SFS) System

for Hi Powers and Hi Power Clones

  1.         SFS System allows the Hi Power to be carried Condition 1, but in a Hammer Forward state.  When the Manual Safety (termed the “Cocking Lever” with the SFS system) is swiped off, the hammer simultaneously springs to the cocked/ready to fire position by work of a Spring.
  2.         Because of the almost flat hammer profile and hammer-forward “carry” position of the hammer, the Hi Power can be carried Condition 1 and eliminate common “snagging” in clothing of a cocked Hi Power hammer.
  3.         Most comfortable hammer for Carry (doesn’t dig into your side-fat when carried IWB on the hip) Makes the Hi Power feel more like a Striker-Fired Concealed Carry handgun, except better because of the Hi Powers thin profile.
  4.         Best Solution for More Sure and Fast One Handed Deployment of the Hi Power.
  5.         Enables “Hammer Forward Carry”, (like a DA/SA handgun), with the superior benefit of every shot being the same Single Action Trigger Pull.
  6.         Adds an Extended Slide Stop/Slide Release…Making all the Hi Powers Controls easily within reach of the thumb of the shooting hand, without releasing or adjusting grip on the Hi Power.
  7.         Adds Ambidextrous Safety to older Hi Powers with one-sided safety.
  8.         Better / Lighter Trigger Pull – Many SFS users have reported a Trigger Break Reduction of ½ – 1 ¼ lbs after installing SFS.  This is attributable to two things.  The SFS Main Spring is 30 lb, and dimensionally shorter than the FN/Browning OEM 32 lb Main Spring.  Less pressure on the Sear/Hammer Tooth Relationship will typically create a reduction in trigger pull weight.
  9.         Cleaner/Crisper Trigger Break – The SFS System is a group of parts and springs that replace certain parts of the Traditional Operating System.  Two parts replaced are the Sear and Hammer.  Typical feedback from gunsmiths: “The SFS Hammer and Sear are extremely well made, and typically superior to the FN/Browning OEM Sear/Hammer.  It is not uncommon for a non-modified Browning trigger pull to go like this:  “Take up…….wall……you think you’re at the “break” of the trigger……then you pull a little more into a “zone” that allows the trigger to pull a little more and yet still the trigger doesn’t break… with more pressure……..FINALLY!……..the hammer falls!”  The SFS Sear/Hammer set typically eliminates THAT! (Note: All results do vary slightly)
  10.      Adds a “Drop Safety” to the Hi Power (that doesn’t degrade trigger pull!)  When in the “On Safe” position, both Slide and Hammer are locked.
  11.      Persons who miss-out on the benefits of Hi Power Carry because they don’t like “Cocked and Locked” Carry, for any reason, can usually embrace Condition 1 SFS Hammer Forward Carry.
  12.      The SFS System Replaces Three Springs in a Hi Power: Hammer (Main) Spring, Safety Lever Spring, the flat metal Sear Spring, and adds a new “Return Spring” that is the cause of the Hammer’s Cocking Action when the Safety is swiped off.  BHSpringSolutions LLC manufactures Optimized SFS Main Spring, Cocking Lever Spring, and Return Spring.  In the opinion of BHSpringSolutions LLC, the design of SFS springs is appropriate for the jobs these springs perform and none of these springs could be considered “over-worked”.
  13.      Seeing the Hammer Forward provides visual confirmation that the Hi Power is “on safe”.  Eliminates all “THAT HAMMER IS COCKED!” concerns.
  14.      Transition to SFS is seamless for Cocked and Locked carriers of the Hi Power.
  15.      Safe Condition 1 Carry, easily embraced by Hi Power owners currently using a “Condition 2 or Condition 3 Carry.  (Also safer because of the “no-snag” hammer.)
  16.      MAY buy you a few extra seconds to access your Back-Up Weapon if an attempted Gun Grab is successful and your Hi Power ends up in a bad-guys hand.  The SFS System is different and may cause momentary confusion for an attacker who gains control or your Hi Power.  In the SFS Carry Condition 1, the Hammer is Locked and cannot be manually cocked.  The Slide is Locked and cannot be racked.  When the Safety is disengaged, it causes the hammer to spring rearward – again, different, and may cause momentary confusion for an attacker in a Gun Grab.  At a minimum, in a “Gun Grab” situation, your Hi Power might be more difficult for an attacker to deploy than any “non-manual-safety” semi-auto pistol.  SFS has Tactical Safety Advantages over ANY other operating system on any handgun.
  17.      Fastest Hi Power Field Strip procedure.  User no longer needs to lock back the slide, to remove the Slide Stop/Slide Release.  Simply push out Slide Stop wh while applying slight upward pressure on the Slide Stop.
  18.      If shooter tends to “ride the manual safety” with shooting thumb during shooting, nothing changes.  But, since the SFS Manual Safety cannot be “cammed up” with the thumb (only by manually pushing forward the hammer), SFS eliminates the chance of the thumb riding up under the safety and inadvertently engaging the safety.
  19.      Ambidextrous Magazine Catch (Included with Tactical Version)
  20.      Decocking the hammer no longer requires a dangerous maneuver of pulling the trigger and easing the hammer forward.

Installation Required and Some Minor Fitting is Possible.  Written Instructions Included and Video Tutorial on YouTube.

  1. Morris Rogers

    Have tried to install on my FEG for 3 days! The instructions aren’t very clear, the video on Youtube is VERY hard to see and the cocking lever spring took off to parts unknown.


    I admit I was reluctant at first to go with the SFS system. But after inquiring via email and then getting a return phone call from Mark I decided to try it, and I now love it. Mark took a lot of time explaining things to me and the service was way above what I expected or have been used to with other companies that I have sent my gun to. The trigger is on par with my custom 1911’s and I could not be more pleased. So pleased I sent them a second HP to get done !

    After having a telephonic conversation with Mark, I sent my Hi Power ( made in 1976) to get the SFS installed. I truly believe it’s the smartest thing I ever did for my Hi Power. It’s like bringing the Browning into the 21st century. Everybody that owns a Browning Hi Power needs to really look into this and if you afford this system, GET IT. I am glad I did

    For anyone concerned with carrying a Hi Power in condition 1, this is the answer you are looking for. Completely safe to carry with one in the tube and no worry about an accidental discharge. Found the install to be easy and activating the firing system no different then swiping the safety on a 1911 or Hi Power.

    I have been a fan of the SFS system for years and have put it on every hi power i own. Some say it’s a solution looking for a problem, and they’re right in a way … there’s nothing wrong with carrying the hi power in condition 1. But there is a perception in the public and even amongst shooters that it is dangerous. There are several gun ranges and classes that discourage condition 1 carry. So this get’s around that.

    But more than just the perception, I have found the SFS sear to be more crisp and in some cases, take up in the trigger has also been reduced.

    All that being said … I was not able to install this on my SA-35 … the hole for the safty on the sA-35 is too small for the SFS safety and you would have to do some work to make it fit. I still might try it anyway. But for now, my SA-35 is the only hi power without the SFS installed.
