FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Browning Hi-Power is a single-action, double-stacked, semi-automatic handgun available in the 9mmP and .40 S&W calibers.
It was based on a design by American firearms inventor John Browning, and completed by Dieudonné Saive of FN in Belgium (designed between 1914 and 1935).
The Hi-Power is one of the most widely used military pistols in history, having been used by the armed forces of over 50 countries, with its first year of service in 1935.
After 82 years of continuous production, the Hi-Power was discontinued in 2017 by Browning Arms, but it remained in production in some countries, under license.
The Hi Power name alludes to the 13-round magazine capacity (in 9mmP), almost twice that of contemporary designs such as the Luger or Colt M1911.
The pistol is often referred to as an HP (for “Hi-Power” or “High-Power”), GP (for the French term, “Grande Puissance”), BAP (Browning Automatic Pistol), or BHP (Browning High-Power).
The terms P-35 and HP-35 are also used, based on the introduction of the pistol in 1935.
This gun is in good, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The original finish is still quite good, with some light wear around the front and edges of the slide, and the trigger guard.
There are also some very small, light patches of wear on some of the controls and around the ejection port, and a few, very small, very light patches of surface rust in a few spots on the slide and frame, but nothing significant.
The aftermarket Pachmayr rubber grips are still in good condition, and the action is still extremely tight.
Comes with 2 x 13 round magazines, and a leather holster.
