The Browning Hi Power is no more.
According to some terse language on the Browning website, production of the legendary handgun has ceased.
No longer in production. The Hi-Power is one of John Moses Browning’s finest designs. And although it is possible to still find a few 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. The Hi-Powers shown below were the last two models in production (and offered to dealers). General availability to dealers ended in 2017.
The Hi Power was the first truly defensive pistol I ever purchased — or I should say my dad purchased for me since I was too young.
I de-tasseled corn — it’s a Midwest thing — for an entire summer in order to save up enough money to purchase the pistol.
It later became my first carry gun.
I learned how to fight a handgun using the Hi Power.
Ceasing production is a business decision I don’t understand, but it’s Browning’s call.
It truly is one of John Moses Browning’s best designs.
