I was just looking at Brownings International Website and notice a Hi-Power in 9x21. I wasn't aware they made one. How could a guy buy one, or can't you?

Here's a 9x21 Practical Adjustable HP in a 13+1 configuration.

They're not imported to America because there's no real need for them here. Some countries don't allow civilians to own guns in "military" calibers, so gunmakers offer guns in 9x21 instead of 9x19 in those countries. Ballistics are the same as standard 9x19.

I was thinking more for the rare and different aspect.

In that case, you could probably save yourself a lot of importation hassles and get someone like Bar-Sto to make a 9x21 barrel for a regular 9x19 Hi Power. Standard mags should work just fine. Plus you can always drop the original barrel back in the gun if the novelty of 9x21 wears off.

Ballistics and overall length of the cartridge are the same, so the only difference is the headspacing "shelf" in the chamber. Perhaps you can talk FN-Int. or FN-USA into providing you with a replacement barrel?
