The Browning Hi-Power is a single-action, semi-automatic handgun available in the 9mm and .40 S&W calibers. It was base on a design by American firearms inventor John Browning, and complete by Dieudonné Saive at Fabrique Nationale (FN) of Herstal, Belgium. Browning died in 1926, several years before the design was finalize. FN Herstal initially name the design the “High Power”, which alludes to the 13-round magazine capacity, almost twice that of other designs at the time, such as the Luger or Colt M191

Time is a flat circle, and what is old will invariably be new again, especially if it didn’t suck the first time. It seems the wheel has come around for the Browning Hi-Power 9mm pistol. Born from a John M. Browning pistol design create not long after he finish changing gun history with the 1911,
it was the first successful “high-capacity” semi-auto handgun that was produced constantly for about 80 years. Now, at the dawn of the 2020s, at least three gunmakers have revived the Hi-Power with moderniz takes on the full-size, steel-frame, single-action semi-auto with a double-stack magazine.

Are these firearm companies testing the waters to gauge the gun buying public’s appetite for nostalgia in their new-handgun diet? Are people getting sick of an endless parade of polymer-framed 9mm pistols optimized for concealed carry? All the many fans of CZ’s steel-framed handguns and the still loyal legions of 1911 devotees might say so.
The Hi-Power’s impressive 13+1 capacity was thanks to its double-stack architecture that roughly double capacity of other 9mm Lugers. Browning died before the design was finalise, and production finally started circa 1935. The result was one of the first, if not the first, commercially available removable double-stack magazine semi-automatics.
Manufacturing finally cease (at least for now) in 2017, heralding the end of an 80+ year production run. While these guns are associate with Belgian manufacturer Fabrique Nationale Herstal (or FN for short), the later models were made in Portugal.
