With the Browning Hi-Power air pistol, you will not find a short recoil operation. Instead, you will find an air pistol powered by 12-gram CO2 cartridges. And while your choice of ammunition is limited to .177-caliber (4.5 mm) steel BBs, this realistic copy is capable of providing hours of inexpensive fun. Each Browning Hi-Power air pistol comes with a single 18-round drop-free magazine.
Distributed by Umarex USA and exclusively licensed by Browning Arms Company, the Browning Hi-Power air pistol is one of Umarex USA's wide range of replica air pistols that is built to nearly the same specifications as the original.
Since its debut in 2006, Umarex USA has been a premium provider of sporting and replica air pistols and rifles. Their world-class products represent a big chunk of several niche communities that range from air guns and airsoft to paintball and tactical accessories. Recently, the company even branched out into rimfire rifles. But enough about Umarex; let us talk more about the Browning Hi-Power air pistol.
The Browning Hi-Power air pistol features a 4 1/2 inch, smooth-bore barrel alongside an overall length of eight inches – both of which are nearly identical to the specifications of the original Browning Hi-Power Mark III. Additionally, the synthetic slide and frame combine to give the pistol a hefty weight of 1 1/2 pounds – just ounces off from the original. Other features include fixed front and rear sights, manual thumb safety and an authentic checkered grip.
As noted, the Browning Hi-Power air pistol is an air pistol – it is not an airsoft pistol. It is designed to fire .177-caliber (4.5mm) steel BBs and is powered by disposable 12-gram CO2cartridges. The cartridges are loaded into the magazine, which is then inserted into the grip of the gun, and provides the pistol with a source of compressed air which acts as a propellant that is released with each pull of the amazingly realistic double-action trigger. This particular air pistol is capable of discharging projectiles at a velocity of up to 410 fps.
The Browning Hi-Power air pistol may not be exactly what John Browning had in mind when he designed the original so many years ago, but it is as close as you can get with an air pistol. It is perfect for:
- Air pistol collectors
- Varmint hunting
- Pest control
- Sport shooting
- Much more…
