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.

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.

      Anybody have one of these? What do you think is a decent price on one ? Looks to be excellent condition.

      I'm considering a CMMG banshee but after calling them I was told they mostly build to order so it's unlikely I can find one in a store. I'm hoping someone might have one they would be willing to let me try out.
      I really hate to buy another weapon without at least laying hands on it first.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

      Something that I discovered recently was that, surprisingly despite the smaller size of my hands, the Glock 19 platform that I had carried religiously for nearly 20 years really wasn't the best platform for me.  Shocker!
      What I discovered was that the longer grip length of the Glock 17 not only put the grip's palm swell/hump in a location that fit my hand better, but I also benefited from using the the medium back strap as it gave me more surface area to get my support hand onto.  More support hand on the grip itself and not overlapping my dominant hand fingers means more actual contact with the gun and therefore better recoil management, less muzzle rise, and faster split times.
      My world had basically been turned on its ear.
      While I still wasn't a fan of the additional length of the 17 for IWB carry, especially with a compensator hanging off the end of it, the Glock model 45 suddenly made a heck of a lot more sense to me than it ever had previously.
      Consequently, I've started to part ways with most of my Glock 19s and have picked up two G45s as their replacement.  The added bonus of course is that the G45's slide is the same length as the G19's, so all of my holsters work just fine with them.
       
      This gun is my "pimped out" carry rig for when I'm feeling a little extra sassy and don't mind a little extra bulk on me.  I sent the slide off to DP Custom Works and had Doug mill it for an RMR and mill the front top of the slide with extra cocking serrations to make press-checks a little easier.  While he had the slide, he re-finished it in a tough black nitride, which looks fantastic and isn't as slick as the factory Gen 5 black nDLC.
      I added a ZEV Gen 5 curved trigger with their tuned ZEV Pro connector, ZEV suppressor height sights, a Crux Ordnance oversized mag release, a Silencerco threaded barrel, a Parker Mountain Machine comp, and hung one of my 1,000 lumen Surefire X300-UB lights off of it.
      The whole thing rides very easily in a Squared Away Customs "FOXTROT" outside the waistband holster or a Legacy Firearms Company light-bearing CRONUS inside the waistband holster.
       
      As for how it shoots, I've got the dot set for a 10-yard zero and stacking rounds in a cloverleaf within a 1-inch circle at that distance isn't a difficult task for me.
      ** Edited to Add: These photos were taken with an Agency trigger installed, before I swapped it out for the Zev curved trigger to keep things consistent across all of my Glocks **
