    If you have a Browning Hi Power, one must also have an FN, an FM, a FEG, a Kareen...which leads to a CZ 75.

    It just never ends

    The FEG clones seem to great value for the money spent.

    Hmm... Nope. I'm good with just the one.

    Kurusu, thank you for that picture. I had never seen that prototype before!

    And Brownell's is now importing a clone/replicant called the Regent, looks nice and is getting nice reviews.

    I have one of the Austrian Gendarmerie surplus P35's that were imported here about 20 years ago. Mine has proof markings from 1955. A great gun even with the small safety and sights.

    IIRC Regent also made or makes a 1911A1 that had positive reviews. For the money the Regent looks like a nice copy.
    A few years back we looked at a Charles Daly Hi-Power, almost bought it

    I bought a Browning Hi-Power years ago too. My brother had it in his work van and it rusted to we had it nickeled. Its still in the family but we don't have it here.

    I don't have an Inglis. But it was the first Hi Power I ever fired, a very long time ago. It was the tangent sight version, the trigger pull was beyond awful. But I didn't complain none.


    Edit. Hey! dogface6! How about some pictures of yours?

    You have so many choice goodies. As a Canadian an Inglis would be nice to have but they go for a pretty penny now.

    I was aware of the dual patent, and the French partner creating the dual stack magazine as well, but I still see the Hi Power as our last connection to the genius of Browning. Still a great gun either way. Just my opinion.
