Originally designed by John M. Browning in 1925, the Hi-Power initially started its life in Belgium under FN Herstal but was soon adopted and produced by several other countries. The Hi-Power was the only sidearm to carried by both the axis and the allies during WWII and was the first military pistol to have a high capacity, stagger column magazine. The 9mm Hi-Power has the second longest service record in history and is only second to another Browning design, the M1911. The Browning Hi-Power Mk.III is the modern descendent of the legendary pistol which is distributed in the US by the Browning Arms Company.
This spring powered replica of the Hi-Power is officially licensed by Browning through Umarex USA and is one of the cooler spring pistols we have seen come through in a while. It is solidly constructed with a heavy duty polymer frame and slide which feature neatly stamped Browning trademarks. It has a functional ambidextrous thumb safety and working hammer as well as an open ejection port
. Its full size drop free magazine holds an impressive 14 rounds and features a locking follower for speed loading.
When you lock in a magazine and rack the slide you will find this pistol functions very smoothly with a light trigger pull. We found its accuracy to be dead on and had more than enough power for plinking or casual skirmishing.
