I watched a video on it from SHOT Show and didn't post it because I thought we had discussed it here before.   This is the TISAS clone that has been out for.a little while now.   Pretty sure that's been discussed here somewhere.

I remember a TISAS 1911 I think, is that the same gun?

Same manufacturer, different gun.  TISAS is a factory in Turkey.

...I remember how HORRIBLE the Tisas 1911 was, Id pass on that just based on my handling of their 1911 in the past

In all honesty, that one thread that gets resurrected about the Tisas 1911 is about the only negative feed back I've heard about their firearms.  

I would suspect that the BR9 could attain a good following, but I think $530 is just a bit high for a Tisas.  I was looking at their 1911 prices a couple of weeks ago and they were about $329.99 at Buds.  They are out of stock now.

The BR9 got discussed in the Tisas 1911 thread. Why? Because it’s where we discuss anything Tisas. Don’t ask me why that is, I don’t know. I just know that it is. 

I’m just happy to have Hi Power anything discussed.

Here’s where the HP discussion starts as a member bought one of these.

Maybe, but nearly everyone make 1911’s, no one is making the Hi Power anymore...until now.

Which is really sad, because it was one of the greatest guns of all time. 😕

First, I am the one and only, the original, broken mold edition. Thank the Lord for that! One is far, far enough.

Secondly, I did see the Tisas BHP clone mentioned a while back, a would have liked to try one. But not at 5 bills plus. Might get a chance sometime.

Wasn’t there a nice nickel or stainless version available that bent my eye?

Yup...

Yep. It’s available in both a black and a stainless version.

Is it junk?

Most reviews I've seen are fairly positive.

I don't see the point in a HiPower clone...except for a FEG I say get an FN or a Browning...or get a newer more refined gun...a remake of a classic is not a classic....its just copying old technology and design.

That’s like saying one should buy a Colt if they want a 1911. The HiPower is still a useful and viable gun. While I understand the economics behind Browning ceasing production, I’m happy somebody is still keeping the design in production.

As far as I know, TISAS is the only current manufacturer.   So if you want something new, its TISAS or hope for some NOS.

I love my Hipower but get real...there are a bunch of much better modern designs if its a self defense, carry, or range gun your after and in most cases much less expensive...and god forbid I say it I love my 1911, but that's also not the most ideal fighting gun regardless of what $2000+ piece of equipment nighthawk, Wilson, etc wanna sell you.  but to each their own...TISAS sure as hell ain't gonna be my choice though...maybe im a snob lol.

Kinda like saying the Hi Power is a modernized 1911.  The CZ is a 45 year old design.😀

I’m actually more of fan of the High Power than the CZ. Ergonomically, I think the HP fits the average hand better than the CZ. I have to reposition my hand to utilize the safety and the mag release on the CZ. I never had that problem with the HP that I owed until it was stolen. At the time, it was my favorite pistol. Wish I could afford another one. 

I do agree with Magiccarpetrides that there are better choices now. Several years ago I sold off my SA 1911 and went to a .45 M&P compact, which I hated. I traded it soon afterwards for a XDs .45. I really like it and would chose it over a 1911 any day. And I would pick my FNH FNS9 or Glock 17 over the Hi Power.  But I would still like to have that Hi Power back.  And to be honest, I wouldn’t made another 1911. I doubt I’d ever carry either again though.

      The Glock Gen 5 chambered in .40S&W have been announced that they will be coming out. My question is this : If Glock is making them in Gen 5 then what's up with all the talk about the .40S&W cartridge being a round that beats and tears guns up ? I have shot .40 S&W Glocks since 1996 and still today. The Glock 22's get these little wear marks or peeing marks under the slide and then the wear stops. One certain firearms trainer here in Tennessee says that they will never go beyond somewhere around 35-40,000 rds. He does know what he's talking abot and he's a smart guy as he's seen a lot come through classes but I dont see Glock making Gen 5's  in the cartridge if they are this destructive.  Your thoughts ?????

      Anyone dealt with Robertson Trading Post in Henderson?  I noticed on GOA, that they have several pistols I'm possibly interested in.  I might be up for a trip to Henderson to check them out.  Are they open to the public or doing online ordering only?  Are they good people to deal with?

      I wasn't planning on picking up a new gun "BUT" Walther just came out with the new Walther PPQ Q5 Match Steel Frame.  I sold my polymer PPQ and picked up the new steel frame.  It has been a long time since I really got excited about a new gun but I really like this gun.  It is a heavy gun at 2lbs 10oz with an empty magazine so it will be legal for SSP/ESP division in IDPA.  My main purpose for the gun is to shoot Carry Optics division and the weight limit is 45oz with an optic.  The optic I will use will be the C-more RTS2 6 MOA.  The gun does come with three mounting plates, not for the C-more.  Had to purchase one from C-more.  The grip is a little bit more aggressive than the polymer gun and I am very happy with that.  I hope to get out to the range soon and when I do I will do a range report.
