Things I liked:It's possible to hit soda cans a little past ten yards with this. The dimensions of this pistol are nearly identical to the real thing, which is great. The materials seem to be reasonably durable, and when not abused, should last a pretty long time. The appearance of the pistol is absolutely superb.
Things I would have changed:Paint the sights to match the real deal's. I did, and it actually looks pretty alright. Find a way to add a little weight into the gun; it feels almost appallingly light. If the hammer could be cocked without the spring having to be cocked, that would be neat.
What others should know:Don't even try .12g BBs out of this thing. All of the ones I tried curved completely unpredictably due to the hopup. However, .2g BBs traveled in a nearly straight line for a long distance, with only slight offsetting and relatively dampened velocity. The safety is a little hard to pivot at first, but in time, it wears into smoothness. This is the best $20 airsoft I have ever seen.
Things I liked:Being a A Aussie we use High powers as or main military side arm. This pistol is really nice and has hardly any weight but feels breakable though it isn't.
Things I would have changed:The grips look cool like the ones used by military forces in UK and Australia. But are a pain in tactical use should put normal grips on there though I haven't used it in battle yet will make another review then.
What others should know:Love this gun. High powers have been used more than any other pistol in the world. It is good to be able to purchase one for a good price that works extremely well and isn't from an company far away in Japan. This is the only website I even saw a springer version. I love this pistol though just the grips bother my hand.
Things I liked:Overall, the Browning Hi-Power is a wonderful little springer, both in appearance and performance. AESTHETICS: The design is a faithful replica of the real steel version. The open ejection port, full-size magazine, functional hammer, and functional safety give the pistol a nice sense of realism. The metal decal on the chamber is a nice touch and looks quite convincing. While the pistol is almost entirely plastic in construction, the build quality seems good. And there are no unsightly screws or molding lines on the slide or frame. PERFORMANCE: The Browning's accuracy was a pleasant surprise compared to many airsoft springers. The point of impact is right where you'd expect within the sight picture, and the hop-up produces a consistent trajectory. While it is far from a tack-driver, with .20g BBs it is easily capable of hitting a soda can reliably at 30 feet. I also found the pistol's power to be rather impressive given its slender slide. Though I suspect the advertised 290 fps is a bit of an overestimate, the Browning has enough punch to make it quite serviceable as a backup sidearm in airsoft battles. The trigger seems to be one of the few metal components on the pistol. The first stage is rather soft, however the release is crisp and consistent. The safety is ambidextrous and engages securely.
Things I would have changed:There are only few detractors to this little pistol, and in the grand scheme of things, I think they are rather minor. My first criticism is that the Browning is unusually light, even for a plastic pistol. While many manufacturers use die-cast metal inserts in the grips or magazine to add weight, this particular pistol seems to lack them. My second criticism is regarding the magazine. While it is capable of holding 14 rounds as advertised, the last BB in the stack will often slip through the loading port and prevent the magazine from feeding. Loading 13 rounds instead of 14 prevents this problem and allows the magazine to feed perfectly every time. But I suppose that's okay - after all, the real steel holds 13 anyway! My final criticism (and this really is a minor one) is that the hammer, though functional, will not cock simply by thumbing it back. Rather, it will only cock when slide is racked so that the internal piston is cocked as well. This does not impair the functionality of the pistol in any way, it is merely a minor departure from realism.
What others should know:All in all, the pistol looks great and performs quite well. It is perfectly suitable for backyard plinking and close-range airsoft skirmishes. And if you're a Hi-Power fan, this piece will certainly look great in your collection.
