A few months ago, we mourned the end of an era when Browning announced it was discontinuing its legendary Hi-Power pistol. Luckily, Turkey-based gun maker TISAS has stepped in and filled the void, offering up what is essentially a Hi-Power clone with its new Regent BR9. The gun is being imported into the U.S. via LKCI out of Ohio.
If you know the Hi-Power, you know the Regent BR9. Chambered in 9mm, this pistol features a 4.6-inch barrel and ships out with two 13-round Mec-Gar mags. It also comes with a magazine disconnect and a Hi-Power-style safety and extractor. In addition, it weighs in at 29.5 ounces unloaded and measures 7.75 inches in overall length. Best of all, Brownells product manager Paul Levy—in the video below—says the Regent BR9 works with standard Hi-Power components.
The Regent BR9 is available in either an all-black Cerakote or a stainless finish. It’s priced at $519 in black and $559 in stainless steel on LKCI’s website. Brownells has it listed for $550.
See the specs below. In addition to the Brownells video, check out a tabletop review and a shooting impressions video from our friend Graham Baates.
