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.
Officially licensed through Umarex USA, this Hi-Power Mark III model features trademarks from the Browning Arms Company and is a fine recreation of the real firearm. It is powered by a single 12 gram CO2 cartridge which is housed completely inside of the drop free 14rd magazine. Being a non blow back pistol it can be fired double action as fast as you can pull the trigger, or you can cock the hammer back first and fire it single action for a lighter trigger pull. It also has a functional ambidextrous thumb safety with a positive feeling operation from either the left or right hand side. Its fatter Mark III grip is also very comfortable and enhances the pistols natural pointability.
We clocked the Hi-Power at a healthy muzzle velocity which averaged 310 fps with a .2g making it a good all purpose sidearm for skirmishing or target practice. The fixed hop-up is set for .2g BBs however .25g BBs can also be used with little change in the pistols effective range of 100 feet.
Great build quality, performance and appearance makes the Browning Hi-Power Mark II a well rounded pistol with a lot of bang for your buck.
