Nighthawk Custom Browning Hi-Power

The Browning Hi Power is considered by many to the be epitome of the 9mm semi-automatic pistol. It was designed by none other than John Moses Browning in 1914, a few years after he designed the 1911. The name “Hi-Power” refers to its 13 round double-stacked magazines. Other pistols at that time were about half the capacity so these magazines were considered to be high capacity.

Nighthawk Custom were excited to show me their custom version of the Browning Hi-Power which they have recently begun selling. It is quite honestly a beautiful gun. They have added a number of custom features including giving it a trigger job (including improved sear and trigger), adding a competition hammer, a contoured magwell, custom beavertail, gold bead front sight, Select Cocobolo Checkered Grips and a Cera Kote Satin finish. As you can see in the photos, the result is a very classy firearm. The MSRP is $2,895. It is not cheap, but it is a custom gun.

    " It was designed by none other than John Moses Browning in 1914, a few years after he designed the 1911"

    Nope!
    It was designed by Dieudonne J. Saive.

    J. M. Browning only started the designing process, and died in 1926. That pistol was entirely different from the final product.
