Default NEW TURKISH STAINLESS HI POWER

As you may have heard FN BROWNING has ceased production of the legendary Hi Power. Tisas of Turkey is now producing The REGENT BR9, & BR9SS. The BR9 is a faithful black steel clone of the original high power. it is a coated finish, but surprisingly well made. It runs approximately $450. The price of a nice used FEG clone.
For $100. more ($550.) the Stainless version BR9SS , has just reached the USA with a shipment of 500. I've had mine about 2 weeks, removed the magazine safety & changed grips. It is incredibly well made & free of tool marks. It is really fine in all aspects & the best bargain I've got in a while.
functions with out hiccups & more accurate than me. The sights are NOVAK copies. 13 & 15 round mags included. FANTASTIC !

This website won't allow me to post my pix. lots to be seen of both models on the 1911 forum/hi power

Funny.

My pictures work.


Illiteracy and/or apathy - guess we'll have to ban those next, as they're discriminatory, too.

Unless the OP was able to get it somewhere else the only place I know to get it is directly from the importer/ distributor. My local dealer was only able to find them here so far. https://www.lkcillc.com/products/9mm/

Graham Bates on youtube has a table top review on the all black one. Seems to be pretty nice. But I'd rather have another arcus 92 or a kareen at $200 something less.

If they come in at the same price point the Turk CZ75 clones run at, then I may be interested, that would mean sub $350 range.

I refinished one. It was great. Hi-Power parts kit was a direct swap.
Stupid simple to detail strip that gun too.

Not knocking your gun, just saying they are middle of road.
Personally like the Argentine FMs better ,if I cant have an FN.

A New Production Browning High Power?

Thanks to LKCI, LLC of Ohio and Tisas we now have an excellent modern production variant, the Regent BR9.

https://www.ammoland.com/2018/04/tis...#axzz5DJDbtoT7

Black Blade: Turk guns tend to be decent so this should be interesting ...

This is in my neck of the woods. One of the few gun shops I haven't shopped at.

Hope these prove reliable with hollow points. I would love to have one. Most of the Turkish firearms seem to be of very high quality.

LKCI -That's the Place I got mine. You can phone & leave a message @ 740-763-0027. They will sell wholesale to you, the black ones are $450. Solid Stainless $550. They are selling out FAST.
Mine (BR9SS) is EXCELLENT

I own, & like my 2 FEG Clones. I like my stainless BR9SS Clone best. I think its made nicer than the FN or FM as well - NO TOOL MARKS or hiccups so far. The only other stainless HP being made is a $3k Elite Warrior.
