Interesting news that Turkish manufacturer Tisas is now offering a Browning Hi-Power clone, the Regent BR9. With other authorized makers no longer in the business, that is the only current source of new Hi-Power pistols. Only a few reviews but already BH Spring Solutions is offering an overhaul advertised to bring the $500 pistol up to custom gun standards for $228. Any thoughts on any of this? Mine: I am really interested in a Hi-Power, but I am not keen on searching all over creation for just the right used Hi-Power from the right time period, in the right condition, with just the right features, and then paying $1,400 for it. If this is good stuff, I am intrigued. I’m sure that 1911 clones were disparaged when they first appeared.Seeing what has happened there and how the clones are the gun now would totally discredit such criticisms on Hi-Power clones if not based on actual poor quality and performance. Let’s discuss.
