Was the this greatest 9mm Pistol ever designed? Posted on March 8, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Was the this greatest 9mm Pistol ever designed?
No, the french and waffle morons fucking ruined it.
JMB's original design for a striker fired long slide high-cap pistol in a bottleneck high velocity cartridge was fucking based. Too based fir F(ucking)N(iggers) to actually produce.
Why must the French ruin everything?
We have no idea how it would've performed, but I can say it looks way more expensive to machine, and much bulkier than the Hi Power. Strikers are shit anyways, and the service record of the Hi Power suggests it's nowhere near as bad as you suggest. The prototype does look cooler though, has that art deco sort of styling.
>JMB's original design for a striker fired long slide high-cap pistol in a bottleneck high velocity cartridge
Really!? That sounds familiar…
Check it out, always remember what those gays at FN took from you.
>Also, the trigger system of the BHP being half in the slide should make a lot more sense now.
>FN's modern "take" on the pic
Why is it so sovless?
Because it's a completely different gun wearing a BHP skinsuit.
Does it still bite if your hand’s too big?
Nope. It was the original CZ-75.
>take Hi power
>invert rails and add a simple DA function
doesn’t count theyre one in the same
it has since been surpassed by many designs, but it was the first of its kind
One of the greatest things about humanity is how we're always improving upon what came before.
Aren't those a bhp tokarev Frankenstein or something?
No, they're basically a 1911 in 9mm.
Oh for some reason I always thought they were produced after 46 I flipped the radom manufacturing date in my head somehow.
The weight is effectively negligible to most and if you are really concerned enough about weight at that point you wouldn't carry a pistol.
I would drop the pistol and replace it with more nades and rifle mags.
But for daily carry its always better and more comfortable to have a lighter gun. If you have a heavy gun the chances are you wont have it on you when you need it because its not comfortable.
When the gun is light its easier to have it close at hand.
I daily carry a type 54 without a safety and never have felt it be uncomfortable.
Its svelte.how wide and long matters the most to a majority I meet thats why most people seem to choose lcp. Lcp is shit to shoot though.
The best gun for concealed carry is the gun that you can actually conceal, will actually carry, and will practice with regularly to achieve and maintain an appropriate level of proficiency with the deadly weapon you're carrying in public.
It doesn't matter how light a Glock is if shooting it feels like a second job that costs you money and you consistently make excuses to take literally anything else to the range instead.
Besides, micro compacts like the P365 body even the smallest Glocks on size and weight, so....
A fully armed modern man has a rifle and a sidearm, and even office glowies carry a pistol, as well as high ranking commanders in the field.
It's excellent. Other than not being a copypasted plastic striker gun I have yet to hear a legitimate argument about it being somehow bad.
Inb4 muh optics cut, muh wml
Can't load the magazines to full capacity without inducing malfunctions, the magazine disconnect "safety" exists and interferes with the feel of the trigger, hammer bite on some variants, shits itself and dies if you shoot too much 9mm +P through it
also yes, muh optic, muh WML; the future is now, old man—Berettas and 1911s are available with rails and optic cuts, what's the HP's excuse?
You can take out the disconnect without issue and it becomes a non issue. I have yet to experience any issues with loading a magazine to 15 rounds, this is the first time I've even heard someone complain. If you get hammer bite either don't be fat or get a different hammer. If you shoot +p then putting in an 18lb recoil spring fixes the issue forever. Pistol optics are overrated unless passive aiming if you have to have a wml there are aftermarket options if you can't possibly use handheld. It still points and shoots more naturally than most other guns made today and isn't plastic
>what's the HP's excuse
Having a soul
No. Hunk of shit to be honest. The king is from Italy.
The fact that you knew I was talking about the 92 without an image.
because it's the only gun to come out of italy. that's not the greatest claim to fame.
BHP with tangent sights is objectively the best looking and most soulful handgun ever made.
Tangent sights on handguns need to make a comeback. It looks like it's about the size of an SRO; just make it line up with a suppressor-height front sight and graduate it for 9mm out of a 4" barrel and people would eat it up
All that legal blabber is anything but aesthetic.
Yes, but only with a black polymer grip, the wood looks better with a fixed rear sight.
But which is the worst high power clone? Fn hp or sa35 hp?
Browing was a overrated retard, his machine guns are all overly heavy and closed bolt, his BAR is useless in every role and outclasses by the CRSG, his pistol locking system are worse than rotating barrel or p-38 style short recoil counterparts, his shotguns were overly complex and open to dirt and his sporting puns weren't much better.
>t. Massive gay
Okay, so who are some non-retarded inventors with successful designs in all those categories?
The Glock. Anyone who thinks otherwise is coping.
I like Beretta for 9mm but the fact is that they are too heavy. Ounces = pounds.
Its very important to keep your gear as light as possible and that is where Glock wins over Beretta.
An ARX 100 is lighter than a typical AR of the same barrel length by more than a Glock is lighter than a Beretta; do you think ARs are too heavy, or are you just a Glockfag?
>An ARX 100 is lighter than a typical AR
An ARX chambered in 5.56 is 6.8 lbs which is about the same as every other AR.
>An ARX 100 is lighter than a typical AR of the same barrel length
No it's not. It weighs as much as a basic AR-15 with a heavy as fuck full length aluminum quad rail. You don't even have to try to get an AR far lighter.
People carry 19/2011s and CZ75 variants which weigh much more than a Beretta. Berettas are metal but they're not steel. They're aluminium framed and they're the lightest metal frame pistols around. However I do agree with you that they're ultimately heavier than Glocks and can and is a factor for the ultralight crowd.
What's interesting though is that the comparison was to a Glock which is a striker fired pistol. Why not compare it to a HK P30? Not only are they both DA/SA They're even lighter than Glocks. If we're in a situation where we're talking rifles, the secondary doesn't even really matter, you could go with a P365, Hellcat or Glock 26 for all that matters. I find guns like 2011s or Berettas to be good for when you only have a pistol yet might have to encounter more than you'd like. Such as a cop or armed guard.
Of the modern clones, which ones run nicer? the girsans or the springfields? the match ops girsan looks like shit but was curious if it feels nicer
>The Hi-Power is the better 1911
>The Beretta 92 is the better Hi-Power
>The Glock 17 is the better Beretta 92
>The MP 2.0 is the better Glock 17
Mine is an original Belgian model.
I’ve added slim grips, an extended slide release, and night sights. Of course, I’ve removed the magazine disconnect as well.
Wot grips? I probably need fatter grips for myself, but still
I didn't know LDS moved to shilling on PrepHole these days
Hi-powers give me hammer bite 🙁
The hi-power was revolutionary for the time, but the 5906 is the best wonder nine.
