” Browning Hi Power

Posted by Jerry Lee

  No list of important handguns is complete without the Hi Power. Today’s gun catalogs are full of “high-capacity nines” but this was the original. With its double-stack magazine holding 13 rounds plus one in the chamber, you can see where the name “Hi Power” originated. Considered to be John Browning’s last handgun design (with final touches by Dieudonne Saive of FN), the Hi Power is considered by some to be an improved 1911. It has been used by the militaries of more than 50 countries since 1935, and still serves many to this day. The grip fits some hands better than just about any handgun and as the design approaches its 80th anniversary, it is a fine example of a full-size 9 mm. “

Double-Barrel 1911 Lands ATF Approval, Importation To Begin Next Year

 

 

  ” We can’t help but be excited about this crazy handgun. Yes, it’s ridiculous, we completely agree with that. It’s two inches thick and weighs four pounds unloaded. Even with a full set of magazines it’s got a capacity of 8+8+1+1 rounds, and it’s probably going to cost a cubic foot of money.

It’s just… we’re so surprised that this gun is going to even be available. How can we not want to get behind one? ”
