New Browning High Power Clone from Brownells.... Login/Join 
Member
posted
I just saw this in an Email I got from Brownells:

https://www.brownells.com/fire...a2IxSEtmazcifQ%3D%3D

Looks like a pretty nice High Power clone from Turkey. In the Brownells video they said their threaded barrels and other High Power parts interchanged and the were available in Blued or Stainless $500-550.

As High Powers are getting a little scarcer one of these might be a decent shooter.

Thoughts or Comments?

There was something negative posted here about them a while back. May have been issues with the extractor? Maybe it was a proprietary desigh?

Handled one a couple weeks ago at a LGS. The fit and finish seem to be pretty good.

Check out this link for an excellent review of the Tisas Regent BR9. I owned one and judged it to be a solid value Hi-Power clone.

There's like, 60 years of imported BHPs on the secondary market. I'll take the genuine article, thank you.

I agree with para that I'd rather have the real deal BHP. BUT, the stainless version intrigues me and I wonder why FN never made a stainless version of the BHP.

I had always wished for a Belgian made stainless steel High Power too.

That was as good of a review as I have ever seen. VERY detailed and authoritative along with suggestions for improvements. Thanks!

I didn't read through all of it but I think this was it.

Para or mods, I'm not sure if it's considered bad form to post a link to another forum. I'll certainly delete if need be.

Here's another review. The fact that gunsmiths who worked on the original BHP will work on the Turkish gun us a good sign.

Think again on that note, Turkey is and can produce some high quality firearms. I have a 20 gage CZ USA shotgun that was made in Turkey and can't quibble about anything about it, especially since I picked it up at Cabelas for only 500 bucks. I will also note that the wood is much much prettier than that on my Beretta Silver Pidgeon 12 gage.


I've stopped counting.

This alone isn't a disqualifier. What Para said is more prudent.


Arc.

Hmmmm....$500-$550 for a pistol with a 12# trigger pull.

Not bad, not bad at all.

I have to agree with Para on this one. I have two FN Hi-powers, both were bought surplus for less than that clone is new. True they are used, but neither is used up.

A quick scan through Gunbroker before this post shows good condition FN or Browning made Hi Powers can be had in the $550-$650 range on a buy it now pretty easily. Sure some are $1200 and up, but plenty are pretty close to the clonee's price. For that price delta, I can't see not getting the real one.

Additionally, while Turkey can and does make some fine firearms, sometimes politics has to intrude; and Turkey is a country I'd rather not give money to these days. YMMV of course.

A Hi-Power is a really nice 9mm, and I encourage fans of 9mm autopistols to have one in their collection. The design still holds up really well, and they tend to shoot very easily.

One day I will get one... probably near the end... I've wanted one since about 1973 or so after reading the book 'Serpico'.

I am 6'3 and have large hands. I had a BHP Mark III forged frame 9mm which I sold after I bought a CZ 75B SA as I find it superior to the Hipower for me (better ergonomics, better trigger, better feel, etc.) and the hipower trigger reach is way too short for me, I find the grip to be boxy, and the triggers aren't great on them either. For a range toy I'd much rather have a 1911 government 9mm over a BHP I still have a FN labeled .40 Caliber BHP I bought new, it is my only .40 and I really like shooting that one and kept it when I sold the 9mm. For someone with smaller hands, I can see a worked over (mainly the trigger) BHP, a great gun. However, I always wanted one in stainless which they never produced.
