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 CO2 cartridges. 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.
Note: Air guns and rifles are, like firearms, not toys. Any misuse or careless use could result in serious injury or death. Any child or person under the age of 18 should be under adult supervision while using an air gun. Prior to use, all materials and instructions that accompany the product should be read carefully. Do not brandish this product in public, as it may be mistaken for an actual firearm and considered a serious crime. Check all local laws and regulations that may prohibit the ownership of this product.
Great back yard plinker for practice for those of us who don't live in the country.
