  • Browning High Power

    Does anybody have any experiance with the Browning High Power Practical pistols. In my opinion, I know it is not the most important thing when buying a gun, but they are one of the best looking guns I have ever seen.

    Are they really worth the price though?

    In my opinion, yes. They are considered the best natural pointing handguns ever made and are very reliable. Single-action auto only, It's trigger can be a bit heavy due to the magazine safety. I loved mine, ex-wife pawned it behind my back.

      You can get the mag safety removed.


      Wouldn't that have been grand theft???

            I have carried (and still own) a Wayne Novak modified HP. Fine gun, liked it a lot, but we became "retroactivly incompetent" to carry single action autos.

              I've owned several including a Nazi proofed one from WWII, an Inglis which was a Canadian manufactured WWII pistol and an Isreali Defense Force sidearm. It's said John Browning invented the 1911 and with the BHP he got perfection.

              The only one I have now is a .40 which has a street carry package. I like the .40 better than 9mm except it has a heavier recoil.

              Check with CDNN Investments as they sometimes have new H.P.s for sale. You'll need Adobe to access the firearms section.

                Quality firearm for sure! I have one similar to the Practical version (a project gun). The only problem I have is hammer bite in the web between thumb and finger.

                  My stepfather carries a Browning and it is a nice weapon. We can't carry them but I do like it.

                    I had acquired a Buenos Aires PD HP many moons ago and loved it. Some work was obviously done to it. I have shot some of the more recent production and still enjoy the great ergonomics and simplicity. I believe that if you want the HP design, the Browning is overpriced. Look at the FM or FN clones. CZ makes a HP design, but I depise the sights. If you want Browning, try to find an excellent condition Belgium/Belgium. That would be worth the price!

                      John Browning considered his High-Power to be a weapon superior to even his 1911. If not for the fact its a 9mm, I think he may have been correct. If it were made in .45 without the grip getting much thicker, I'd be getting one.

                        Thats funny. John Browning was dead before the Highpower ever saw production. The design was mostly Dedon Saive's sp? The same guy who designed the FN 49 and later FAL rifles. The only thing I know of that was his design was the newer style barrel hookup design.

                          From http://www.m1911.org/browning.htm

                          "...The most famous pistols of John's design, however, were Colt's .45 ACP M1911 Government Model and FN's Browning High-Power Model P-35 in 9mm Parabellum."
