Some range time with your Hsc
« on: December 02, 2019, 11:44:47 PM »
Have you shot your Hsc lately? They are very accurate weapons!


I exercise my French made Hsc 6 times a year. In this session I fired 11 rounds at 16 ft with Speer GoldDot 60 grain ammo. They punch real clean holes. I usually take it every other month to the range along with my EDC.
The Hsc is just about the same size as a Sig P-938 and just as accurate.

Thanks for sharing.  I have not shot any of mine in a long time.   Maybe I ought to.

I guess very few Hsc owners shoot them. Too bad, there great weapons!

Back again with another range report. This time I went 20 ft., 20 rounds with FIOCCHI 73 grain FMJ.
The weapon operated flawlessly.
Every month I will do this and go further and further back until I reach the 75 ft. mark. I want to see what this Jewel can do.

Great reporting, Rob, and great shooting, too!  I actually prefer .32 ACP over .380 ACP in the HSc since it is much more controllable and, hence, accurate particularly in current production extra-lightweight pistols, i.e., the Kel Tec P-32 (a personal favorite).

For those interested, statistics show that most gunfights average 7 yards (21 feet) so this last range report and its results are especially noteworthy.  Thank you!

The Keltec .32 or .380 are very capable weapons.  Very accurate!!


I shoot with a friend that has a FFL he has them both.  I have fired them. They remind me of the Beretta

I have taken my "project" HSc to the range only once so far, soon after I put it all together from random parts I have found. I was still missing the rear sight at the time so it was basically just a proof of firing and function test. No target to be shown yet. It ran flawlessly. Not a single malfunction of any kind. I ran three different brands of FMJ ammo through it. Geco 73gr, PPU 71gr, and Fiocchi 73gr. All ran equally well. These HSc's are fun shooters. They fit/feel good in the hand and have very low recoil. I will be shooting this much more.

It seems you are shooting it with war era grips on.  If they break,.. then you will not be a happy camper.

I know. Everything on it and in it is wartime production except the complete Wolff spring pack. I have some repro grips coming in for shooting. I just couldn't wait. Lol!

Looks like you need a rear sight as well

Yes I do. I ordered one from GunPartsCorp, but they sent me the wrong one. Listed as fitting an HSc but it is for an HSc Super. Different sight.

Bummer, hopefully you can locate one and soon be able to try it out again.

Back again with the 30ft range report. This time I used the Speer Gold Dot.  Combat grip.
Went out another ten ft.
As you can see my group broke up quite a bit. It was mostly me not the gun. I was in between two stalls that were shootng big caliber weapons. Ok enough excuses but as you see I'm still hitting mass in vital areas and it would almost simulate a war time situation with all the random shots.
I will try to choose a less crowded time next month at the forty ft mark and maybe close up that group some.


When I fire this weapon I think about the people that used them.

So I tried out the rough condition var. 3 km I bought just after Xmas. It was fairly accurate, however it refused to shoot single action after the first shot as in it would function fine as long as you shot double action but the hammer wouldn't cock as the gun cycled, but double action worked just fine. Maybe when I get ambitious I will take a look and see why.
