To anyone who has served in the Australian Army, or indeed even the broader ADF, the ubiquitous Browning 9mm Pistol will have likely crossed their path at some stage.
Its military history and use spans all the way back to 1935, and back in the day its higher magazine capacity of 13 rounds earned it the title of ‘Hi-Power’ as opposed to the standard 9mm Parabellum round that it fired. Its contemporary rivals generally had capacities of only 6, 7 or 8 rounds.
Manufactured by Herstal Browning of Belgium, the pistol was also produced under license by numerous other nations seeing it serve in dozens of militaries across the 20th century and even now into the 21st century.
During WW2 when Belgium was occupied by German forces the pistols were made for use with German forces, favoured in particular by Falschirmjager and Waffen SS units. It is unusual in this respect as the weapon was also used by the allies, such as British Airborne forces who favoured the gun’s high mag capacity and reliability.
This Denix replica of the famous 9mm Browning Hi-Power pistol faithfully reproduces the size, weight and working action in all metal construction with removable magazine.
This great replica pistol makes a great memento for former service people, and can be creatively mounted with unit badges and other militaria. It also fits well with a wide number of WW2 militaria collections, a film prop or as a man cave talking piece being one of the most widely used military handguns in history.
