Because it Works
I was a "smith" for BrowninG for 38 years and the Hi-Power was one of the guns that I worked on there. I have serviced many hundred of them and the big deal with them is the fact that they are VERY WELL made, they are simple and they work. Don't forget that this design is OVER 80 years old and John did not have the tools nor material that they have today. GREAT GUN !!!
