M Browning Hipower

By E. J. Hoffschmidt

The Browning Hi-Power is an excellent example of what a military semi-automatic pistol should be. It has a large magazine capacity, and is rugged, dependable, and accurate.

The Browning Ml935, or the 13-shot 9 mm. Browning Hi-Power as it is better known, was the last pistol designed by John Browning. Although patented in 1927, the gun was not produced until 1935, when it was manufactured by Fabrique Nationale for the French Colonial troops. Later, a shorter 10-shot version was produced by Fabrique Nationale for the Belgian government.

The original large model was also manufactured, under license, by the John Inglis Co. of Canada, which made the gun in 2 models during World War 11 for the Chinese Government. The first model was a standard holster gun with fixed sights; the second had an adjustable rear sight and was machined to take an attachable holster stock for long-range shooting.

Made in 9 mm. Luger caliber, the M35 Browning Hi-Power has a double-row clip which holds 13 cartridges. It has a barrel of in length and measures 13A" long over-all. Weight empty is 2 lbs.
