Browning Hi-Power's popularity? Please inform me.

Recommended Posts


Please pardon my ignorance, but would someone explain to me why everyone seems to be losing their minds over Springfield and CZ (?) making their versions of the Browning Hi-Power pistol? I've heard something about the patent expiring. The excitement is lost on me, but not for any lack of curiosity.

What is the importance of the Browning Hi-Power? Or what is the historical significance of this pistol? Why is it so popular?

To an uniformed layperson like myself, the Hi-Power just looks like a 1911 chambered for 9mm. I'm sure I'm wrong and that there is more to the story. 

I mean no disrespect to a John Browning invention. I'm just trying to understand what the excitement is all about. Maybe I'll get one too. 

Thank you.
