Jonathan A. Ciener Hi-Power Plus

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The attractive Ciener conversion with its adjustable sights fit our Charles Daly HP extremely well, and had much the same finish as the original. We thought it felt about as good and well balanced as it looked, much like it belonged on the HP. The trigger was on the heavy side.

The rear sight on the Ciener was this small Millett unit, which worked well, though we didn’t have to move it. Note the full-length serrated top rib to cut glare. Ciener also makes a fixed-sight version for $50 less.
The rubber ring on the spring is a buffer. The Ciener unit requires the use of the HP’s normal spring pin to secure the spring into the barrel lug. Like the Tactical Solutions unit, it also uses the gun’s original cross pin/slide stop. It was very easy to get the Ciener Hi-Power Plus apart for cleaning. Just remove the barrel.
The magazine also comes apart easily and fully for easy cleaning. The magazine holds 14 rounds and was easy to load.
