Replica Browning 9mm Hi-Power Pistol
Browning Hi-Power 9mm Replica Pistol by Denix
The Browning Hi-Power designed by John Browning and originally made by Fabrique Nationale Herstal of Belgium (FN), is one of the most widely used military pistols in history.
The Denix Replica Browning Pistol is a non-firing reproduction that brings it to life for the collector.
The name ‘Hi-Power’ references the magazine capacity of 13 rounds that was almost twice that of its rival handguns of the time of release in 1935 such as the Colt .45 1911 or Luger.
The pistol is also known as the P-35 or BHP has also been manufactured under license in other countries, such as in Canada by Inglis and also in Argentina.
During WW2 the Browning High Power was used by both Allied and Axis forces.
In 1940 when Germany occupied Belgium, it continued to make use of the FN arms plant and so this pistol was issued to some elite German units such as the Waffen SS and Falschirmjager.
In Allied service it was popular with airborne forces, SOE and SAS. The high magazine capacity and robust design made it a popular sidearm with many military forces long after WW2.
Used by the armed forces of over 50 countries, after the Browning High-Power finally ceased production by Browning Arms in 2017, and still made under license in some places.
For Australians this pistol is best known as the standard side arm of the Australian Army, Navy and Air Force where it has seen service from the Vietnam War to the MK3 version still remaining in service with the Australian Army.
A Denix replica of the 9mm Browning High-Power pistol can accompany a display or re-enactment ranging from WW2 to the Vietnam War or even modern times.
