When money permits, I'm thinking of getting another Browning to replace the Hi-Power that I had to recently sell. I'm looking at some of their newer offerings and when finances improve and the time comes to buy, I've narrowed it down to two choices: The Browning Hi-Power DA Compact ...

The Browning Forty-Nine ...

Have you checked out the New PRO model that Browning will be releasing soon. I can't wait to see one up close and handle it!!

I was interested in the Compact and after some research decided against it due to the poor trigger. I got a Sig P239 and love it.

If I was buying now and polymer was under consideration I might get the FNP-9. Reliable, light, accurate and great trigger.

I never liked the trigger on the forty nine. Of course I tend to like SA better than DA. Given your choices I think I would go with the DA Hi Power, although one of those little detective Hi Powers would probably suit me better. But to each his own.
