Hi-Power Pistols

No longer in production. The Hi-Power is one of John Moses Browning's finest designs. And although it is possible to still find Hi-Power pistols at dealers across the U.S., the Hi-Power is technically out of production. Current dealer inventories will be the last available from Browning for the foreseeable future. Of course, periodically, special custom versions will continue to be available from the John M. Browning Custom Shop in Herstal, Belgium.

Hi-Power Pistols

A look back at the greatest 9mm ever. John Moses Browning's Hi-Power.

When it was introduced early in the 20th century, the Browning Hi-Power 9mm pistol was a revelation. Designed by John M. Browning and perfected in the years following his death by Fabrique Nationale’s prolific designer, Dieudonne SaiveIt, it offered the perfect balance of handling, size, and firepower, with an impressive 13-round magazine capacity. Over the years, the Hi-Power has aged gracefully and continues to have a loyal following among those “in the know.” Whether you are a novice or a seasoned shooter, you will appreciate the fine craftsmanship and function of these classic pistols, the sure heft of the machined steel frame and slide, and their natural pointability.

Even with the double-column magazine, the grip is narrow to neatly accommodate nearly every hand size, and the single-action trigger provides a smooth, consistent pull. As reliable, accurate and easy to shoot as ever.

Sure, there are many, many other full-size 9mm pistols on the market that are made to meet many different requirements. But in the end, every true firearm enthusiast will have (or wish he or she had) a Hi-Power in their collection. Having and shooting the best just means something.
