Nice of them to identify the weapon. /s
Didn’t 007 prefer the PPK?
Probably a good change as the Glock is always ready, that is if they are allowed to keep one in the chamber which I doubt.
As far as accuracy, I doubt there is any real difference.
How can I get some of those surplus Brownings? Don’t they use the 9mm HiPower?
OOOOOOH! I wonder if we can get them to ship us some of the old Browning HPs as C&Rs?
*** carries more bullets and is more accurate than the U.S.-made Browning.***
I thought they were made in Belgium and now assembled in Portugal.
I love Belgium Brownings!
As proud owner of two of their latest.....the Glock 30 (small, .45 ACP) and the Gen 4 Glock 23 (.40 cal), I’d say....excellent choice. Glocks rock.
Oh....should have said FORMER owner.....damned boating accident.....sheesh.......
A firearm loaded with bullets without the rest of the cartridge is pretty useless.
The current pistol (L9A1) is basically an off the shelf FN High Power. They’re being replaced, in part, because the current issue 9mm NATO loading is beating the hell out of them.
In what way is a Glock “safer” than a Browning ?
This brings back a memory of early spring 1983 in Germany. I got a ride to the big PX at Mainz-Kastel to go shopping. I was thinking about buying either a camera or a pistol. I reviewed the stocks of both and decided on either a Belgium Browning 9mm Hi-Power or a Canon AE-1 35mm camera with several lens; both came to about $400. I ended up deciding on the Canon 35mm camera with a 50mm lens and a 75-300mm telephoto lens. It turned out to be much more useful during my tour in all of the slides I took of my 4 years there while in the Army.
I’ve always wanted a Browning Hi-Power. Beautiful little pistol.
Oh for the want of a Glock 21; .45 ACP with a 13 round mag.
Another sign of the sad decline of Britain. A plastic frame loaded with stamped parts instead of that elegant, accurate, all milled steel pistol designed by John Moses Browning himself... They can’t be that far downhill, can they?
I’d be more impressed if they had switched to Ruger SuperBlackhawks. THAT would make folks take notice!
I thought the military used the Beretta model 92FS for several years after they dropped the Colts.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Glocks. Shoot Glocks, carry Glocks.
But with all they other shit the Army makes you wear I’m not sure I’d be humping a Glock too. It would be bound to get snagged on something.
Another 25,000 guns on the streets of England. I thought that their gun control was so effective that the police often didn’t even carry guns.
Anyone care to wonder why this is happening? And then shove the answer up Piers Morgan’s fop hole.
Translation: Our supply of L9A1 9mm Browning HiPowers are insufficient, we don’t want to buy more from the Belgians (that are assembled in Portugal), so we go with Glocks made in Austria. [It should be noted that the UK does very little small arms manufacture of its own any more. That has been outsourced to “freer” nations.]
