Not LA area, but Mk3Firearms in Las Vegas are High Power Specialists. See their Instagram for pictures and descriptions.

Unfortunately, there is no one locally that I can recommend. Dave Lauber was pro-ported To work on them, but I dont know his work or availability.

I can recommend Don Williams. He runs a 1-man shop in chino Valley, AZ.

His Hi-Power work is excellent Based from the Gun I sent to him.

I know it sucks sending outta state, but thats what you need to do to get quality work done. Hi-Powers are a very niche market, more so than 1911’s.

Nighthawk still works on hipowers as well.

Mk3 has some very nice samples as well

Cylinder and slide works on them too but there waiting list is 1.5 years when I checked with them earlier this year for work to my 1911
