I really like single-action pistols, and one of my favorites has always been the Browning Hi Power in 9 mm. These days a person can read up on the history of this fine John Browning-designed gun in any number of places, so I won’t bore you with all of that. I suspect that this model of pistol, in one of its many configurations, has been in more deadly encounters than any other fighting handgun. Having sung its praises, I have to say that there are several things that have always bothered me about this fine pistol.
Some time ago, Nighthawk Custom entered into an agreement with Browning to obtain Hi Power pistols and give them a custom makeover. The neat thing for the shooting customer is that he is getting a genuine Browning pistol as the base, not a questionable copy. And Nighthawk gunsmiths must have been reading my mind because they have successfully addressed exactly those issues with which I have had problems.
