Hudson Manufacturing has just released their new H9 pistol, which they announced earlier. It is a striker fired double stack pistol chambered in 9x19mm. Hudson H9 has a steel frame with interchangeable G10 made grips.
The unusually large dust cover of the slide allows positioning the recoil spring assembly and the barrel lower than it is in 1911s. The result is a lower bore axis, which should decrease the muzzle flip. Below the dust cover H9 features a standard accessory rail. Imagine how futuristic will the gun look with some of the handgun lights installed. The magazine capacity is 15 rounds.
The design of this firearm is based on the 1911 pistol – heavily modified and modernized. The pistol has a unique trigger combining some good features of 1911 and modern pistol triggers. Particularly, it has a straight pull 1911-style trigger with a built in Glock-ish trigger safety. The trigger pull is from 4.5 to 5 lbs with .115″ of trigger travel. Hudson H9 comes standard with the trigger safety, however, it can be configured to have a 1911-style manual safety either in left or right-hand position or ambidextrous.
Hudson H9 also features an ambidextrous slide release lever and a reversible magazine release button. The gun weighs 34 oz unloaded. You can see the dimensions of H9 in the picture below.

The MSRP for H9 pistol is $1,147.
