I picked up a used 9mm Browning Hi-Power a couple weeks ago, primarily for my wife's use. We compared several different pistols and this Browning was the best fit for her. It was made in 1992 and had been well cared for. It came with one factory 10 round mag (which oddly will only hold 9 rounds), plus a pair of 13 round Mec-Gar mags. I paid $350.00 for it.
We took it to the range yesterday for a modest work-out with 100 rounds of Winchester 115 grain FMJ and 50 rounds of Winchester 115 grain JHP ammo. There were no malfunctions of any type. The fixed white dot sights were right on at 15 yards. The ejection pattern is very consistent, about 6 feet to the right rear.
But there is a downside, and that would be the trigger. This pistol's trigger is atrocious! All of the adjectives I can think of (gritty, sloppy, excessive overtravel and a few more) apply to this trigger. A visit to the gunsmith is definitely indicated, which will be done shortly.
This is my wife's best 15 yard group, 13 rounds, including the two fliers, with the 115 grain JHPs, in spite of the crummy trigger.
In its present form, this Browning is a diamond in the rough. With some trigger work, it should become a real gem. I've also decided to have the magazine safety removed because it prevents the Mec-Gar mags from dropping free. The Browning mag, being spring assisted, pops right out.
