Squeaky 135 Posted December 6, 2021 Report Share Posted December 6, 2021 Hello: 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. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
