Browning Hi-Power Mark 2 Surplus Description:
The Browning Hi-Power is a single-action, semi-automatic handgun available in the 9mm and .40 S&W calibers. It is based on a design by American firearms inventor John Browning and completed by Dieudonné Saive at Fabrique Nationale (FN) of Herstal, Belgium. In addition, 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.
In short, Mark 2 is an upgraded model of the original Hi-Power in the early ’80s. Some of the upgrades were ambidextrous thumb safeties, nylon grips, 3-dot sights, and a throated barrel.
In addition, the pistol has a small number of design issues. The standard trigger pull is heavy, especially for a single-action pistol. The standard Hi-Power magazine safety is connected to the trigger and is released by a plunger pressing on the surface of the magazine. Also, this action of the plunger on the magazine adds tension to the trigger pull, and the required force to operate this feature adds resistance as well. After-market trigger springs with reduced tension are also available to improve the trigger pull.
To sum up, the Browning Hi-Power has a long and distinguished service life. It has graceful lines. It fits the hand well. With 13 rounds of modern 9mm carry ammo, it is a formidable carry gun. With its ease of use and minimal recoil, it’s a blast on the range.
